Deborah Frethem writes of this house in her book, “Haunted Tampa: Spirits of the Bay.” According to Frethem, this building dates back to 1901 and was a boardinghouse once used by a number of African American greats during the days of segregation, like Ray Charles, Count Basie and even Martin Luther King Jr. She says there have been reports of “faces composed of mist” appearing in the windows of the house.
