The Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; 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; 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 phantom lighthouse keeper at the St Augustine Lighthouse and Museum; and the ghost of the Jameson Inn, quite modern but already haunted, on Cracker Barrel Drive in Crestview, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.
Umatilla Cemetery with its screaming woman and phantom children; 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 toilet-lurking Two Striped Telamonia spider; the pink, horned, serpentine monster of the St John's River; the Fairchid Oak of Ormond Beach, haunted my a male spectre, possibly a suicide; the ghosts of Miss Sunshine Gibson and Captain Wood in the historic, Cracker styled, Gibson Inn in Apalachicola; and the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island, are more weird folklore associated with Florida.
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); 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"; sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs; the White Lady, Julia, who haunts Rolling Acres Road in appropriately named Lady Lake, along with a hooded phantom; the spectre in a top hat that haunts the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St Petersburg; the pink fog of Tomoka State Park that leaves behind only the dismembered skeletons of those it envelops; the smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape; 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); mysterious orbs and noises at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort; and spectral lights and other mysterious phenomena at the Indian River Inn & Conference Center in New Smyrna, are yet more strange folktales of Florida.
