Absecon Lighthouse - Atlantic City NJ Real Haunted Place
Ghosts are said to exist at the location, dating back to 1905, according to by “Ghost Stories.” At that time, a keeper claimed to have seen the Jersey Devil at the top of the tower. Others since then have seen spirits and noticed smells of pipe and cigar smoke, and the sounds of spooky laughter, footsteps in the tower and the tower door opening and closing. Dimes are also said to appear in odd places.
The Lighthouse has no reported deaths, but tales of lingering ghosts remain, according to “HauntedHovel.com.” Some have reported seeing apparitions of people dressed in the 1800’s war uniform and civilian attire at the bottom of the lighthouse looking confused and lost at night.
Today the Lighthouse remains open to the public for touring. Many paranormal investigators have also visited the site, including “SyFy’s “Ghost Hunters.” The keepers’ quarters serve as a museum and gift shop.

Absecon Lighthouse Is Really Haunted
On August 23rd 2023 I made the 228 step climb to the top of the Absecon Lighthouse and took photos and videos inside and outside, everything seemed to be normal as.i was climbing up, as soon as I started my descent downwards I was recording myself walking down the stairs I captured what I can only describe as sounds of heavy breathing behind me and tapping sounds, didn't capture any smoke or cigar smell just heavy breathing and tapping sounds like Morse codes on the walls or railings dot dit dash, my dad felt that same experience as well heavy breathing and noises coming up from behind you as you walk back down the steps. I really do believe that the Absecon Lighthouse is haunted and I highly recommend visiting it and climbing to the top and making your way back down and see if you experience heavy breathing and tapping sounds behind youPosted 8/27/23
