The towns and scenic byways of the Long Beach Peninsula attract more than just tourists, and from Oysterville to Ilwaco, ghostly tales abound. In Seaview, the Lamplighter hosts a multitude of spirits, including Lily, a murdered barmaid, while at the nearby Shelburne Inn, many guests have reported a ghostly presence that has yet to be identified. Mysterious footsteps can be heard on the stairs of the George Johnson house in Ocean Park, and a man holding a baby is rumored to appear at the Old Ilwaco Hospital. Join author and historian Sydney Stevens as she uncovers the spooky side of these beloved seaside towns.

Sydney Stevens and her husband, Nyel, live in the house that was once the parsonage for the historic Oysterville Church. Three generations have shared this house with Mrs. Crouch—the ghostly wife of the very first minister who lived here. Her story prompted Ghost Stories of the Long Beach Peninsula. The lingering questions about her husband led to yet another book of ghost stories—this one! Sydney is an author, historian and great-granddaughter of the man who cofounded Oysterville.
