Marrero’s Guest Mansion is said to be home to a ghost named Enriquetta, the love of well-known cigar maker Francisco Marrero, who built the mansion for her in 1889. Francisco died while on a business trip, and Enriquetta was shocked when another woman claiming to be Francisco’s wife arrived to claim the mansion. Apparently the Cuban woman was Francisco’s first wife, and they had never divorced. Enriquetta and the 8 children she had with Francicso were forced out of their mansion. But over the years, Enriquetta’s spirit has been making itself known at the mansion, proof that she never really left. Witnesses say the kindly ghost and her children can be seen and heard here, especially in Rooms 17, 18, and 23. Room 18 was said to be Enriquetta’s bedroom; a mysterious scent of lavender has been detected by some guests here.
