Dave Lapham recounts the story of King Corona Cigars in his excellent book, “Ghosthunting Florida.” The owner was renovating the store one night when he saw a huge, hulking figure in the back. He was about to run for the front door when the figure just dematerialized into thin air. A young girl in old-fashioned clothing has also been seen – she too disappeared just as suddenly as she appeared.
