WATCH: Bug Light Tour Reveals Possible Paranormal Activity

With a recent study by paranormal experts, a tour of Bug Light now has a whole new haunting twist.

A voluntary paranormal investigation team out of Sleepy Hollow investigated a few weeks ago and reportedly came up with some interesting results — ghostly indentations on a bed, a dog bone mysteriously moving on its own on the floor and other apparently inexplicable things during an overnight stay.

the great grandson of original lighthouse keeper William Follett, helps guide tours of Bug Light and other East End lighthouses through theout of Greenport. He was with the paranormal team during the sleepover and said that if any spirits are visiting the lighthouse, they are probably those of his great grandfather and the lighthouse dog, Brownie.

“Brownie was a true lighthouse dog, he hated living on land,” Allen said during a recent tour of Bug Light, built originally in 1871 off what is now the coast of and destroyed by fire in 1963. The lighthouse was rebuilt in the early 1990s, and the paranormal team explained that though most of the structure might be new, the site is what will draw spirits back to the place where they’d spent so much time and energy during life.

“It’s not really a haunting — the spirits are just visiting a place and people they had strong ties to,” Allen said.
