This lighthouse is said to be haunted. The original keeper of the light, John Radelmuller, was a refugee from Bavaria who fled war-torn Europe to work for the British crown. Upon his arrival in Upper Canada, he started bootlegging during the Temperance years after the Revolutionary War.
One night Radelmuller vanished mysteriously. Legend holds that he was murdered in a dispute over alcohol, and buried around the lighthouse, where his ghost still walks.
And indeed, much later, a human jawbone was found on the site. However, no murder charges were ever laid.
