The Edwardian house built in 1905 in West Palm Beach was moved to historical park Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds, Royal Palm Beach. It was originally a funeral parlor until its purchase by Karl Riddle in the 1920s, after which it was a private home. It is haunted by Joseph, an employee of Karl Riddle, who hanged himself in the attic rather than face his financial troubles. The ghost does not like men, and has been known to attack them. The place has been featured on TV’s Ghost Adventures.
