Towerhallway.jpg
603 viewsBoth the North and South sides of the Lighthouse have private entrances to the Tower. The entrance to the tower opens into a steep spiral staircase with small steps; the staircase ends at a landing where the door to the attic is located. To reach the light, you must then climb a ladder leading to a narrow hatch. Once through the hatch, you are officially in the Lighthouse Cupola/Tower! During Hans Holzer's visit, one of the mediums got an impression that a man had been murdered in the entrance to the tower. A voice recorded here said in a British accent, "Hold your tongue, Handsome (or Hanson)".
