The apparition of a tall man dressed in old-fashioned clothing is said to reside at the Audubon House. He wears a ruffled shirt and long jacket, and has been seen both in the entry porch and the gift shop gallery. Rumor has it that the ghost is none other than John James Audubon himself. Some bird enthusiasts suppose that Audubon may have come back to catch another glimpse of Key West’s beautiful birds.
