An old house with quite a lot of colorful “history”… Among other things, locals say that when the house was unoccupied, strange candle lights would appear in the windows, moving slowly from side to side.

Check out these snippets from a 2006 article by the Tampa Bay Times:

Local lore has it that in the 1930s a man showed up and convinced the Weekses to let him rip apart the fireplace because he was sure Gordy had hid his fortune behind the bricks. He found nothing and left town.

The place sat mostly vacant in the ’70s and ’80s. Vagrants stayed there at night and used candles and matches to spark their cigarettes. People walking by would get spooked by the flickering lights.

One owner in the late ’80s and ’90s bought the property and kept it for 13 years just so he could dig up the yard and rip open the walls looking for treasure. The man found arrowheads, rusted keys in old-time shapes, a nickel from 1890 and a quarter from 1892. He told a reporter from the Times in 1995 that his heart went “pitter-patter” when he found something good and how digging in the ground made him feel like a part of the past.

  2. I’m purchasing the Weeks house – and closing soon. There is so much that needs to be done on the house – including tenting. Once I get the basics out of the way, give me a shout. FYI – will probably be months before basic renovations are completed.
