    Folklore, Scary Stories, Ghosts, Monsters, Legends and Myths in Florida

    Sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs; the ghost "Vivian" who haunts the Hunter Arms Inn in St Cloud; the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; the White Lady, Julia, who haunts Rolling Acres Road in appropriately named Lady Lake, along with a hooded phantom; the ghost of the Jameson Inn, quite modern but already haunted, on Cracker Barrel Drive in Crestview; the toilet-lurking Two Striped Telamonia spider; and 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!), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Florida.

    Hauntings at Ocean Key Resort and Spa, Key West; strange phenomena at the historic Mary Phifer McKenzie House, part of the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville; the spectre in a top hat that haunts the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St Petersburg; the Fairchid Oak of Ormond Beach, haunted my a male spectre, possibly a suicide; spectral lights and other mysterious phenomena at the Indian River Inn & Conference Center in New Smyrna; spirits of the Agustin Inn in the St Augustine Historic District, including a man in white, who walks through walls and who may also be the ghostly Chiles who "goes bump in the night"; and the Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.

    The Elusive Muck Monster of Lake Worth Lagoon; the phantom maid who makes a nuisance of herself in the historic St Francis Inn, St Augstine; the pink fog of Tomoka State Park that leaves behind only the dismembered skeletons of those it envelops; the Wiccademous Grave of the atmospheric shrimping village Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, where the spirit of a witch causes the earth to tremble; 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); 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); and ghostly apparitions at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, formerly the Peabody Hotel, are more weird folklore associated with Florida.

    Umatilla Cemetery with its screaming woman and phantom children; mysterious orbs and noises at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort; 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 pink, horned, serpentine monster of the St John's River; the smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape; the phantom lighthouse keeper at the St Augustine Lighthouse and Museum; 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); the Saint Augustine Monster, a real carcass that has never been positively identified; the ghost of a former owner that haunts the Inn at New World Landing, Pensacola; and the ghosts of Miss Sunshine Gibson and Captain Wood in the historic, Cracker styled, Gibson Inn in Apalachicola, are yet more strange folktales of Florida.
