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; 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 phantom lighthouse keeper at the St Augustine Lighthouse and Museum; the phantom maid who makes a nuisance of herself in the historic St Francis Inn, St Augstine; 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); and the ghost of a former owner that haunts the Inn at New World Landing, Pensacola, are more weird folklore associated with 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); hauntings at Ocean Key Resort and Spa, Key West; the Elusive Muck Monster of Lake Worth Lagoon; ghostly apparitions at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, formerly the Peabody Hotel; Umatilla Cemetery with its screaming woman and phantom children; the smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape; 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); strange phenomena at the historic Mary Phifer McKenzie House, part of the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville; the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; and the Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon, are yet more strange folktales of Florida.
