A ghostly image of a lamplighter can be seen strolling near the soldier's barracks. During the days of yesteryear, he must have fulfilled his duties nightly by walking around lighting the lanterns and light fixtures around the fort. Not wanting to relinquish these duties, he still wanders the grounds.
A captain from the civil war era can also be seen inspecting the gun emplacements, making sure all is ready for the next ethereal assault.
Near the powder magazine, a revolutionary era soldier can be seen sitting cleaning his gun. Many folks have returned from their tour and complimented the staff on the revolutionary re-inactor, only to be told that there was no re-in actors at the fort. They have nicknamed him "Amos".

At one point during the active lifetime of the fort, a blacksmith named Jason liked to keep the doors to his shop open all of the time. The commander of the fort wished them to be closed for obvious reasons. Today the doors to the blacksmith shop seem to open all by themselves.

The outer casements seem to be the site of a concentration of civil war phantoms. What appears to be a confederate prisoner of war can be seen in this area. The fort was used to house confederate prisoners during the Civil War. Just outside the casements a Federal soldier has been spotted sitting. When a closer approach is taken, it becomes apparent that the man does not have a face.

Elizabeth Pratt married an officer in the army and lived at the fort with him. Depressed over the death of her daughter who also lived at the fort, Elisabeth hanged herself from the second floor of the officer's quarters. There are occasions in the evening when her screams of mourning can be heard from outside the fort.
