Southold, NY is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Race Rock Lighthouse. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.


 Construction began on Race Rock Lighthouse in 1871 and was completed in 1873 on a dangerous set of rocks in Long Island Sound. Eight vessels had been lost on Race Point reef by 1837.

In 2011, Race Rock Light available at no cost to public organizations willing to preserve them as part of the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act. The New London Maritime society took ownership of Race Rock and two other lighthouses. 


Many members of the Coast Guard have claimed to hear disembodied whispers, laughing, voices and even yelling. Some have been touched, poked, or pushed by these phantoms and refuse to return to this property. Unexplainable footsteps and the sounds of running water have also been experienced. Many passing boats claimed they have witnessed a shadowy presence of a man in the tower as the light passed over him. 

Given the stories of hauntings at this site, the U.S. Coast Guard engaged the help of Travel Channels Ghost Hunters to investigate and help provide some answers. The crew came out and filmed an episode there with some surprising evidence.
