Lake Bomoseen’s Ghostly Rowboat

Haunted Rowboat

The town of West Castleton now sits abandoned, but it was once home to Irish immigrant slate workers who were fond of crossing Lake Bomoseen to visit a tavern on the east shore.

One night, three men set out for a night of carousing. They never returned. The next morning, their boat was found floating empty. Their bodies were never found.

Today, lakeside residents claim that sometimes during a full moon, a dark, unoccupied and ghostly rowboat can be seen moving silently across the lake toward the West Castleton Bay. No oars disturb the otherwise glassy, still surface.
