Broadtop, PA - The Old Man with the Lantern

I heard a story once about a ghost that dwells in Broad Top, PA which is near my hometown in Huntingdon County, central Pennsylvania.  

There was an man who was building his own house out of stone on top of a hill.  He lived near a quarry and hand carried the stones from the quarry to his home.  He worked day and night to complete his project.  Unfortunately, the man died before he could complete his home.  

Some say that occasionally at night, you can see the light of his lantern moving along the pathway from the quarry to where his home used to be.  It as if he is in an eternal quest to finish the home that he never had a chance to complete.
