King-Cromartie House

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  King-Cromartie House

The 1907 twin storey home is still believed to be haunted by the ghost of Louise Cromartie and her children. Her translucent apparition has been seen, looking out her second floor bedroom window. Some people are treated to the full paranormal package. She is described as wearing her blonde hair in a bun with ringlets on the side of her face, wearing a pink dress. The sounds of children running, playing, laughing and singing around and in back of the house are heard by the living.

  1. s.w.4th st in dania has several haunted houses, numerous people have experienced evil forces in several houses, one actually made it’s presence known during a seance, and made the residence move out, they was so harrassed by this spirit, and will not even talk about it to this day, i was present and actually held the seance. cannot give you the exact adress as it wouldn’t be right for the owners of the property. as it is a rental. scary stuff went on. and made a believer out of all of us present.

  2. Is ridiculous how they deceive people is demons familiar spirits from generational curse when you die u go to heaven or hell u soul leaves and people don’t understand that the demon hich is familiar generation masquerade themselves to the owners

  3. The King-Cromartie house is (or was—it’s been over a decade since I was last there) on the ‘tame’ side. At times you can smell a meal being cooked (sometimes breakfast, other times supper) in the kitchen. The occasional cold spot is not uncommon.
