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); 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"; the smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape; the ghost of the Jameson Inn, quite modern but already haunted, on Cracker Barrel Drive in Crestview; 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; and sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.
