Spook Light

Does anyone know anything about the Spook Light and where it is? I visited it as a child and am curious if it is still around.

It was one of my favorite places to take a date in high school (late 1960s). Haven't been there in a long time, but I'm pretty sure people still see it. Found this article about it which, at the end, has very complete directions for driving to it. I was saddened to hear that the spook light museum has bitten the dust. Good luck on your hunt!

My grandmother told me this story and if the story is true..my grandmother would never lie to me, the story went like this. She and friends were parked on the road where the Spook Light was often seen, and back then the Light was much more active than today. She said they watch as the Spook Light came right up the road, straight towards their car and went right through it to the other side. My grandmother, a God fearing woman, was even more so after that..or so she said, smiling.
