In my research, I had to jump ahead on my list of 50 places, just to check out St. Augustine Lighthouse. Any fans of “Ghost Hunters” show know that was one of the most memorable episodes every—very chilling!
Lighthouses intrigue me anyways because I have a kind of feng shui attitude about haunted places and round buildings just seem to hold things in a circular motion that makes them ideal vessels. For that reason, this site which would have scored a 5 out 6, scores a 6/6. Round buildings are rare, but I’m willing to give a point to them because they simply do seem to be haunted/disturbed more often than not.
St. Augustine lighthouse has these points:
1. Made of stone.
2. Round building.
3. On the water
4. Older than 50 years
5. Has a history of death/trauma
6. Is on ground that is sands/limestone
Honestly, if I were to factor in other things, like people who for many decades had to climb the metal stairs in a routine that could have left a pattern behind, along with a high-powered light at the top of the circular tower, I’d want to give it even more points! To me, this place appears to be a regular battery to energize spirit activity.
When I’m done with the research, I’m going to delve a bit more into the kinds of reported hauntings and the similarities between the sites. I think there could be a real correlation between the conditions that can cause a residual haunting and perhaps poltergeist activity and what it takes to create an “intelligent” haunting.
More #6’s to come during the week.
