Many people lost their life's on the island over the years and many people claim that the island is simply a hot bed of paranormal activity. The Chapel on the island is supposed to be especially spooky and over the years people on the island have heard singing coming from the chapel and some people have even claimed to see many people in the chapel through the windows only to find the chapel cold, lonely and empty when they go inside the chapel.
And its not just the islands chapel that is haunted. Many people claim to have seen a very strange black dog with bright red eyes roaming around the island at night. And if you approach the dog or it walks towards you it simply vanishes.

My Ghost Story From Star Island
In July of 2010 I was able to visit Star Island and it was in the cemetery pictured in the photos below where I was to encounter a ghost and strange paranormal activity. I walked up to the foot of one of the graves and almost at once I saw several fist size rocks moving on their own like they were alive. When I reach down to pick up one of the rocks to see what was going on the rocks stopped moving. And even though I stood and watched for over an hour the rocks never did move again. Other people over the years have seen the rocks moving. How or why no one knows. Some people claim to hear the laughter of children when the rocks are moving. I did not.
I did catch a glimpse of a small little girl at one end of the cemetery that one second was there and the next second she was gone. She was wearing a white dress and for just a second or two she was solid. At first I thought she was a real person. But she was not. And yes she was really there. If only for a brief second or two.
I didn't see anything else paranormal anywhere else on the island but I'm sure sure there is paranormal activity all over the island. While I was there on the island that day several people claimed to hear children running and laughing but they saw nothing. So again I'm sure that the island is haunted.

Three Little Girl Ghosts.
The three little sisters died with in a few weeks of each other on Star Island New Hampshire in 1863. The girls died of Scarlett Fever. Over the many years since 1863 people have claimed to see three little girls playing in the area near their grave sites. As you approach them they either run away in the other direction and you can never catch up to them or they simply vanish. It is a tragic tale indeed that all three sisters died that year and it is from tragedies such as this that tales of the paranormal come from. Do you have a ghost story of your own.
