The coastguard has a crew to the duty at that place who has even reported to the unexplained knockings that take place during the nighttime.

The area is haunting consistently with the closing the opening in the repeated pattern.

The turning on and off the television sporadically and many other accidental removals of the sheets from the beds have turned on the curiosity among people to visit it at least once in their life.

In around 1900, the board of New London Ledge Light House had determined that there was an increase in the boat traffic to the New London harbor such that they warranted a new house that would act as the supplement to New London Harbor Light on Pequot Avenue.

The process of the authorization of the building began in the year 1906 by the United States Senate.

Then the New London Ledge Light House got created in the year 1987 with the goal to tend the construction of the lighthouse.

The work was under the non-profit organization. The goal was to restore the area lightly and thus publicize history.

The management had to reuse the whole museum, gallery, and tourist attraction.
