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

    Sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs; the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; 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 Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; the ghost of the Jameson Inn, quite modern but already haunted, on Cracker Barrel Drive in Crestview; and the Elusive Muck Monster of Lake Worth Lagoon, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Florida.

    The phantom lighthouse keeper at the St Augustine Lighthouse and Museum; 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 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 spectre in a top hat that haunts the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St Petersburg; the pink, horned, serpentine monster of the St John's River; and ghostly apparitions at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, formerly the Peabody Hotel, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.

    Mysterious orbs and noises at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort; spectral lights and other mysterious phenomena at the Indian River Inn & Conference Center in New Smyrna; 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); the pink fog of Tomoka State Park that leaves behind only the dismembered skeletons of those it envelops; 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); and the White Lady, Julia, who haunts Rolling Acres Road in appropriately named Lady Lake, along with a hooded phantom, are more weird folklore associated with Florida.

    The ghosts of Miss Sunshine Gibson and Captain Wood in the historic, Cracker styled, Gibson Inn in Apalachicola; the ghost of a former owner that haunts the Inn at New World Landing, Pensacola; Umatilla Cemetery with its screaming woman and phantom children; 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 Saint Augustine Monster, a real carcass that has never been positively identified; strange phenomena at the historic Mary Phifer McKenzie House, part of the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville; the ghost "Vivian" who haunts the Hunter Arms Inn in St Cloud; the Fairchid Oak of Ormond Beach, haunted my a male spectre, possibly a suicide; the smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape; and the Wiccademous Grave of the atmospheric shrimping village Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, where the spirit of a witch causes the earth to tremble, are yet more strange folktales of Florida.
