This 1821 plantation built by Major Charles Wilhelm Bulow is said to be haunted by a Seminole Indian curse. The plantation passed to son John Bulow, who had a good relationship with the Seminoles. In fact, John went so far as to fire cannons at Major Benjamin Putnam and the Mosquito Raiders when they came onto his property to try to remove the Indians. John was arrested, and the plantation was used for an outpost in the war against the Native Americans. When Putnam left and John was released, the Seminoles, not understanding what had transpired, believed John was against them; they burned the plantation to the ground. John fled to Paris and died shortly afterward, at age 26. Some believe the Seminoles cursed the area and their ghosts remain. Witnesses have reported shadowy figures in the trees, balls of light, cold spots and a dark figure that chases people. Some also claim a Swamp Monster lives nearby.
