The East End is rich in history, so no wonder there are so many tales of ghosts that haunt the roads, landmarks and old homes in the area. Below, we list some of Hamptons locations that are said to be haunted by spirits.
The Montauk Lighthouse
The Montauk Lighthouse is said to be haunted by a 17-year-old girl who died after a ship she was traveling on went down near the lighthouse. The girl, Abigail Olsen, survived the shipwreck, but passed away shortly after washing up on shore. Many say they have heard her voice in the tower at night.
The Villa Paul Restaurant, located at 162 West Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays, has an apparition who likes to make herself seen. Diners and employees have claimed to have seen the lady specter on multiple occasions, as well as a ghostly dog, which has been known to run through the restaurant from time to time. The restaurant also has a spooky photo of a shadow-like figure standing at the rear of the room.
Hampton Music, located at 98 West Montauk Highway, is said to be one of the most haunted places in the Hamptons. The over 80-year-old building has a few ghosts, who often startle the businesses owner.
The Lady of Red Creek
According to lore, the Lady of Red Creek is said to haunt motorists in the backwoods in the Squiretown section of Hampton Bays near Route 24. The ghost is said to be a missionary woman killed during colonial times.
The Rogers Mansion
The 171-year-old Rogers Mansion is the site of unexplained phenomena that have been documented by museum employees. The ghost is said to be one of whaling Captain Albert Rogers' wifes.
The windmill, located at 239 Montauk Highway in Southampton is believed to be haunted by a little girl, named Beatrice Claflin, who fell down the mill steps and broke her neck. Since, people visiting the site have said that they have seen her face in the mill's windows.
