Ghosts of Erie Beach

Yes, Halloween has passed. But ghosts, if one believes in them, should be present all year long.

So the question today is, who has seen any ghostly activity in Erie Beach?

While the area certainly lends itself to a great setting for a horror movie, from decaying concrete structures to the dark forest where one might fear to venture off the beaten path, I've never heard anyone speak of seeing ghosts there.

And while having walked through the area after dark many times, I've never seen any spirits (insert drinking joke here) there myself.

In his book, Shadows of Niagara, John Savoie writes about a number of sightings.

"Ghostly activity has been witnessed along the boardwalk and throughout the forest," he writes.

"One witness professed he had seen a woman wearing a long dress and hat appear in front of him walking along the boardwalk weeping and wiping tears from her eyes. She disappeared into a mist when he approached."

Anyone else out there have a ghostly experience at Erie Beach?

Please leave a comment or e-mail me.

Well we didn't see them last night but they made their presence felt.

We went there after supper at Green Acres to show my 20 year old where the big pool used to be as Green Acres does have a picture of it near the front entrance.

Well she wasn't impressed with the idea, we parked at the west end and walked to prominade to the east eand then took the path back in the woods, and she was saying this sucked and it was shit and then things started to fall out of the trees the rest of the way back out of the park. Funny nothing was hitting me or the wife.
