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

The ghost "Vivian" who haunts the Hunter Arms Inn in St Cloud; the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; the toilet-lurking Two Striped Telamonia spider; spectral lights and other mysterious phenomena at the Indian River Inn & Conference Center in New Smyrna; 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); ghostly apparitions at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, formerly the Peabody Hotel; and the Fairchid Oak of Ormond Beach, haunted my a male spectre, possibly a suicide, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.
The pink fog of Tomoka State Park that leaves behind only the dismembered skeletons of those it envelops; 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 pink, horned, serpentine monster of the St John's River; 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; the smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape; and the phantom maid who makes a nuisance of herself in the historic St Francis Inn, St Augstine, are more weird folklore associated with Florida.
The White Lady, Julia, who haunts Rolling Acres Road in appropriately named Lady Lake, along with a hooded phantom; the Saint Augustine Monster, a real carcass that has never been positively identified; the ghost of the Jameson Inn, quite modern but already haunted, on Cracker Barrel Drive in Crestview; the ghosts of Miss Sunshine Gibson and Captain Wood in the historic, Cracker styled, Gibson Inn in Apalachicola; mysterious orbs and noises at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort; the Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; 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 ghost of a former owner that haunts the Inn at New World Landing, Pensacola; the spectre in a top hat that haunts the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St Petersburg; and 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", are yet more strange folktales of Florida.
