Four Paranormal Tales To Check Out In Huron County, Michigan


Unlike many towns and counties in Michigan, Huron County doesn't have a whole bunch of haunted and paranormal tales. Maybe the ghosts here just hide themselves better, but they do exist. There are more than ghosts here, as residents old and new will attest to, if you ask the right people. So, while you are here you may want to do a little paranormal investigating of your own.

The Haunted Sweet Dreams Inn
You can start your investigation at this amazing little inn located in Bay Port. Make sure to bring your fishing poles, and your grill. It's a great place to fish, and in case you don't catch your own, it's home to an excellent fishery. While visiting, consider staying at the Sweet Dreams Inn, if you aren't afraid of the ghosts.

You can find this cute little place mentioned in books about the ghosts of Michigan, and you can visit their website to learn more about their confirmed hauntings, and events they host. The Inn was recently closed for renovations, so you may want to give them a call ahead before writing your plans in stone!

Huron County Big Foot
In the mid-1960s some children reported seeing a hairy apeman in the dunes of Huron County. It doesn't appear there have been any reports in recent years, so maybe the Lake Huron sasquatch is long gone, or maybe he's just better at hiding these days. If you do find yourself on the sands or in the woods around Caseville at night and hear a rustling in the trees, don't just assume it's a deer.

The original report was that the sighting happened on a full moon night, so maybe like the tales of werewolves, he only comes out at certain times.

Werewolves In Huron County
Speaking of werewolves, there have also been some undocumented cases of these night creatures being sighted in Huron County as well. One woman, to be left unnamed, saw one in her teenage years on the outskirts of Harbor Beach. It ran across a dirt road in front of the vehicle she was riding in. It was too big to be a coyote or even a large dog, and there are no actual wolves this far down in the state of Michigan, even in the winter.

If you happen to find yourself driving the back roads of the east side of Huron County at night, keep an eye out for the werewolf of Huron County, and don't get caught with your windows down.

Harbor Beach Haunted Residence
The same woman that saw the werewolf also lived in a home in Harbor Beach with her sister and her family. Both lived in different parts of this duplex, yet both experienced some very scary paranormal activity. From floating beds, to things clawing at the walls, and everything in between, this house has something evil in it.

This private residence has since changed hands, but you can still peek into the windows of the house on the corner of North Huron Avenue and School Street, beside the post office, when you drive through town. You never know what evil you might see looking out the window at you.
