Folks here have have heard the sounds of knocking and bumping, and a man and a young girl screaming. The lights turn on and off during the fracas, as if the girl is trying to escape her attacker. One witness described a vision he had seen there of a man abusing a young girl; after being shown old photographs, he identified them as 1900s homesteader William Anderson and his stepdaughter.

  1. Oh it’s real alright we went there one day to snoop around and see what it looked like up close and noticed the back door open on the second floor so we walked up their went in and say that the main floor was all dirt and there was only a top floor and all over the top floor was power tools all over the place as if people were working and vanished why I say that is there was so much dust on them and then the place got ice cold and we all felt a powerful evil over us then an ice cold gush of air about 35 mph blew at us then we ran. It’s a strange place also heard it was an old who’re house back in the advice stay away on the real..

  2. This building has been a favorite of mine since childhood. It’s a beautiful place, in a very sad and haunting way. Go see it before it’s gone. Unfortunately, it is in a terrible state of disrepair now and will probably not last many more years in this tropical climate. I have never heard of Mr. Anderson abusing his stepdaughter, but I know the building also served as apartments sometime during the 30’s or 40’s, I believe. Another poster said it was also a whorehouse. Some have also said that a large banyan tree in the back was used for hangings, although there is no evidence of this.

  3. I live near the property and every time I pass it, I get an overwhelming feeling. Goosebumps, nauseous, and once hear what sounded like screaming children. I stumbled across this article and glad I did. Its confirmation of what I always suspected of the property.
