Hi. I haven't been to this board in a while and I'm sad to see some people are confused about whether or not they are looking for the light at the right location!
It's easy to figure out if you're in the right place... there will be a huge wooden sign there with PAULDING LIGHT written at the top, then a description of the light and it's legend, and a cute little Casper ghost at the bottom. Check out a youtube video I found at www.youtube.com/watch?v=Et9NV0t7NGU to see footage of the sign and the observation spot.
Depending on the time of day and the time of year, you will probably also see a bunch of other people there too!
IF YOU DON'T SEE THE SIGN, YOU'RE NOT IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
The sign thing seems to be another unusual happening there. I have seen posts from the same day of people saying it was down and others saying it was up. Not sure what the deal is but I am thinking it is usually a mistaken location for those who think the sign is down. Maybe people should start taking a pic of it each time with a date stamp on camera and then can post it when someone says it was down.
