It's Out There. Return to the Paulding Light
The Lake Superior region is known for haunted ship tales. But the legend of the phantom railroad brakeman who walks the night, his swinging lantern visible from a dead-end road in Ottawa National Forest, is perhaps the most famous ghost story of all.
A Michigan Tech student research team’s investigation was featured in the latest re-telling of the Paulding Light mystery on Discovery's Science Channel.
The new series "Strange Evidence" aired Tuesday (Oc.t 17). (Fair warning: In addition to the Paulding mystery, the premiere episode examines footage of a customer who caught fire in a Kentucky convenience store.)
Show producer, WAG TV, came to film in Paulding, the tiny western Upper Peninsula community located between Watersmeet and Bruce Crossing in July.
