Haunting, haunted – these words seem extremely weird and gives one an eerie feeling. Maybe for pastime people do talk about haunted places, people haunting areas etc. But in reality you do have a whole lot of haunted houses all over the world. Most people fear being alone in dark rooms because of not wanting to encounter spirits. However, in reality there are numerous North Florida haunted houses that you may not have heard about. Here is a small list of a few most haunted areas in Florida that have been famous for many years and are believed to be still in existence.
The Riddle House at West Palm Beach in Florida
This Edwardian place was built in 1905 and was later converted to a historical park. However, originally this was a funeral parlour before it was purchased by Karl Riddle in 1920s and became his personal home since then. The owner Karl Riddle became bankrupt and resorted to hang himself instead of facing his financial problems. Hence, this ghost haunts only men and has also appeared in the recent Ghost Adventures program on television.
Carriage house apartments in Chelsea courtyards
Apartment 40 in this presently known as Chelsea Courtyards apartments has been vacant for many years. This is because it was known to cohabitate ghosts and hence it was used only as a storage place for many years. According to a few witnesses, poltergeist activities like walls with blood dripping, things being thrown around everywhere and the smell of rotten flesh persisted. Sudden appearances of badly decayed faces show up in the mirrors. Witnesses have seen an elderly kind female ghost and a white cat show up from time to time. It is believed that this lady had died in 1987 of cancer.
Pinewood historic cemetery – Daytona Beach in Florida
This cemetery is considered the oldest cemetery in the Daytona Beach area in Florida. Witnesses have reported that the place was haunted by a woman spirit. Besides this a headless ghost was also reported and is rumoured to be the spirit of Adler Rawlings whose bones and grave was defaced by teens.
Similarly there are a lot of these haunted places not only in North Florida but all over the world. People do fear the inhuman spirits though they are not seen with the eye. However, nothing has been proved to be factual but there have been witnesses to many weird experiences and scenes.
