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 smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape; the ghost of the Jameson Inn, quite modern but already haunted, on Cracker Barrel Drive in Crestview; the toilet-lurking Two Striped Telamonia spider; mysterious orbs and noises at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort; the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; and the Elusive Muck Monster of Lake Worth Lagoon, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.
The thoroughfare popularly called Bloody Bucket Road and the similarly prefixed bridge and woods in Wauchula where, at night, blood appears in the water below the bridge and the sound of crying babies is heard from the woods (a murderous midwife is said to have been haunted by a bucket that supernaturally filled with the blood of her victims, which she tried to pour out at the bridge); the ghosts of Miss Sunshine Gibson and Captain Wood in the historic, Cracker styled, Gibson Inn in Apalachicola; the ghost "Vivian" who haunts the Hunter Arms Inn in St Cloud; the phantom maid who makes a nuisance of herself in the historic St Francis Inn, St Augstine; the ghost of a former owner that haunts the Inn at New World Landing, Pensacola; strange phenomena at the historic Mary Phifer McKenzie House, part of the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville; and unexplained phenomena at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Miami (ghostly events are associated with the fact that the hotel was used as a soldiers' hospital during WW2), are more weird folklore associated with Florida.
