The gash-throated phantom of Luc Simone Aury that haunts the area outsde of the Amelia Island Museum of History, formerly the Old Jail where he was hanged, in Fernandina Beach (his attempt at suicide failed and his throat was stitched by a surgeon but the long drop of the gallows caused his wound to open and shower the horrified spectators with blood - Aury couldn't have planned it better if he had tried!); the phantom maid who makes a nuisance of herself in the historic St Francis Inn, St Augstine; Umatilla Cemetery with its screaming woman and phantom children; the Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; strange phenomena at the historic Mary Phifer McKenzie House, part of the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville; the Saint Augustine Monster, a real carcass that has never been positively identified; and the smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.
The ghost "Vivian" who haunts the Hunter Arms Inn in St Cloud; the White Lady, Julia, who haunts Rolling Acres Road in appropriately named Lady Lake, along with a hooded phantom; sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs; the Wiccademous Grave of the atmospheric shrimping village Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, where the spirit of a witch causes the earth to tremble; mysterious orbs and noises at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort; unusual hauntings of a Victorian guesthouse, Artist House, in Key West (the turret is said to be haunted, both by Anne, the wife of artist and author Robert Eugene "Gene" Otto and by the malevolent spirit of a sailor doll, also called Robert - the "possessed" doll itself is sometimes displayed in the Fort East Martello Museum or at the Old Post Office and Customhouse and is claimed to be the inpiration for the Chucky movies); and the pink fog of Tomoka State Park that leaves behind only the dismembered skeletons of those it envelops, are more weird folklore associated with Florida.
