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 White Lady, Julia, who haunts Rolling Acres Road in appropriately named Lady Lake, along with a hooded phantom; the Elusive Muck Monster of Lake Worth Lagoon; the ghost of a former owner that haunts the Inn at New World Landing, Pensacola; the Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; and sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Florida.
Strange phenomena at the historic Mary Phifer McKenzie House, part of the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville; the numerous ghosts of the Cassadaga Hotel, Cassadaga, which embraces its phantom guests and usually has a professional psychic on hand (spectres include girls Katlin and Sarah, Gentleman Jack with his trademark cigar and a rather naughty ghost called Arthur); the ghost "Vivian" who haunts the Hunter Arms Inn in St Cloud; Umatilla Cemetery with its screaming woman and phantom children; the phantom lighthouse keeper at the St Augustine Lighthouse and Museum; the pink fog of Tomoka State Park that leaves behind only the dismembered skeletons of those it envelops; and ghostly apparitions at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, formerly the Peabody Hotel, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.
