"The Hole"

This one’s hard to track down… several web sites mention a place in Boca Raton called “The Hole” where a woman was raped in the 1960s. Supposedly people see her still walking a parking lot in this area.

We’ve done some digging and so far haven’t found a place referred to as “The Hole” in Boca Raton, though there is one in nearby Delray Beach, according to this snippet from an article in the Broward New Times:

They hung out for hours at a time in front of a place on SW Ninth Avenue in Delray Beach known as “The Hole,” a string of small cottages with iron bars on the windows that served as a drive-thru drug mart. On December 28, 1986, Sallah and fellow reporter Gina Smith filed a story that began on the front page with a photo of an apparent drug deal at The Hole and jumped inside to a two-page spread dominated by a map pinpointing every known crack house in Delray Beach, complete with the address, the owner’s name, and a photo of each place.

So right now, that’s our best guess – though where on “SW Ninth Ave” is still a mystery. If anyone has info, please let us know!

  1. The hole in boca raton is an area of the parking lot at first methodist church on mizner blvd just east of federal highway. Its the corner of the parking lot covered in bushes and shrubs thats why its called the hole. A few people I know have said theyve seen a girl in a white dress walk across the parking lot out of the corner if there eye and when they look over she looks at them and then disappears.
