Tim Reeser mentions this “haunted intersection” in his book, “Ghost Stories of Tampa Florida”. Apparently Kennedy and Marion was the site of the old “Florida House Hotel”. This hotel burned to the ground in Victorian times, and one of the victims was a little girl who was asleep in the kitchen. Eerily enough, that’s what people claim to hear on this intersection – the disembodied weeping of a little girl.
