The New River Inn (built in 1905) now houses the Old Fort Lauderdale History Museum, but visitors still report seeing apparitions in the historic building. The first is that of a man in an old-fashioned rancher’s outfit, who paces the first floor and the front porch but vanishes when approached. The second spirit is that of former owner P.N Bryan, who still guard the museum at night. He can be seen glaring down at people from the second floor of the building. The other spirit reported here is that of a young girl in turn-of-the-century attire. She often plays in the building or talks to people before disappearing, and is regarded as one of the friendlier entities of the building.
