    My husband and I stayed at The Old Powder Inn in February 2020 where we were married. We had no paranormal experiences while there. In fact, it was quite peaceful and serene. However, shortly after returning home we started to experience strange happenings in our home. It started with the closet in the master bedroom. After returning home one evening we noticed that the shoe rack was moved away from the wall to the center of the closet and the shoe horn that was up on the shelf had been placed elsewhere. Another time we were watching TV in the family room and my granddaughter’s ball started rolling across the floor. Most recently, while watching TV in the family room we heard a noise coming from the closet. When we went in there we opened the closet door and again found the shoe rack moved away from the wall and one shoe hanging off the shelf. We were living in the house approximately 3 1/2 months before going to St. Augustine and never had anything out of the ordinary happening. It wasn’t until recently that I started to wonder if the “ghost” followed us home. We stayed in the room “Memories.”

  2. I stayed here a couple of years ago. I don’t remember the name of the room, but it was on the second floor, front facing, right off of the porch. I later learned from a ghost tour outside of my window at 11 p.m. that the very room I was staying in was haunted by the ghost of 2 girls playing with dolls on the deck. That space was literally three feet from where I lay. Needles to say, I didn’t sleep a wink that night. I believe we were visited by the girls – our door became unlocked while we were out, my nailpolish inexplicably shot out of my hands as I sat near the porch polishing my nails, and the smoke alarm went off for no apparent reason. The owner had little sympathy and acted like she was surprised to hear my story and denied any knowledge of ghosts. I later heard they sold soon thereafter. Maybe they couldn’t take the ghosts anymore either.
