Lighthouse Point
(1 Bed, 1 Bath)

A History Of "Lighthouse Point":
In 1872, newlyweds Oliver and Elsnor Finche finished building the iconic lighthouse, along with their house on the shore. Oliver was a well known and trusted governor, but also a bit hardheaded and naive, with a massive amount of money. Elsnor was shrewd, cruel, and unforgiving with a heart as hard as stone and as cold as the sea. She married Oliver in hopes to murder him and run off with all his money. When the day came, she attempted to burn him alive by setting fire to their little house on the shore; but the plan backfired when the roof collapsed on both of them. Both their bodies were never found. After the incident, several people reported seeing the ghosts of the couple wandering about the remains on the beach. It became impossible to sell the lighthouse as it continued to deteriorate until 1938, when a lonely, washed up fisherman and sailor Sherman O'Cannan purchased the lighthouse and ruins. He didn't have many visitors, but those who knew him well enough to talk to him say that he kept going on about seeing "entities" some nights. Two years after he purchased the lighthouse, he mysteriously disappeared. Some say he was driven mad by loneliness and jumped into the rocky ocean from the lighthouse balcony, others say the ghosts pushed him over the railing. Either way, his body was never found. Yet some nights, when people go to marvel at the beauty of the lighthouse, they swear to see the ghost of O'Cannan roaming about the balcony, screaming, "Beware the ghosts, beware the ghosts..."

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG THIS SOOOOO SOOOOO SOOOOO REMINDS ME OF POINT SUR LIGHTHOUSE. That light house is legitimatly haunted (If u belivie in ghosts. If not then its the bases for a lot of unexplanable anomalies.) I watched a ghost adventures episode on it.
Mainly the reason why itrs haunte is because there was a suicide at the sort of maid quarters that was on the property. That lady had an affair with the married man (2 people lived in the lighthouse) that lived on the first floor. Thats one of the lesser hauntings, mostly residual I guess. Not that I know much about this stuff.
Anyways, most the the hauntings come from the boats that would sink often. This lighthouse is somewhere around santa cruz or san fransisco lots of boats crashed there, famously 'The los Angalos' which not only had men but also women and children. The most active spirit is a young girl.
But yeah thats aqll I know about it. heres the episode link ( and and a article about it ( I live in san fransisco and I've never heard of it till I saw the episode so it can't be that haunted. I don't exactly belivie in that stuff, but this is way too long and I should stop talking
