Site of Old Wilton Manors City Hall

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Site of Old Wilton Manors City Hall

Local legend tells of strange happenings at the former City Hall building, built in 1957. Cold spots, a heavy atmosphere, and unexplained soft music are said to be the work of a ghostly maintenance man named John Bold. Bold loved his work, and it seems that he stayed on–even after his final shift. His apparition has been seen by another worker who knew Bold when he was alive. The building was demolished in 2010 and the site is now a parking lot.

    1. We rented the storefront that had prior then the Christian bookstore on Wilton Drive. This was the storefront owned by the Richardson Estate.George Richardson rented it to us The first night that I was alone in the building painting late into the night, I felt an oppressive presence that intimidated me enough to send me home vowing never to work there again late at night.When you’re on the real estate agency there for two years and I never didn’t spend a late night alone again.A couple of years later I picked up a book at Publix in titled haunted Fort Lauderdale. The Richardson Estatei had its own chapter. The hauntings are attributed two the fact that the site was once an Indian burial ground on the river. The second story is that the Richardsons chauffeur shot himself to death in the garage carriage house in the 1930s. Either way, it warranted a televisionIn investigation which revealed multiple orbs floating throughout their shoot.Either way I am convinced.
