Across the street from the Fernandina Beach High School is a little dirt path that leads to an ancient oak tree with a stone marker nearby. This is, allegedly, the burial site of “Wiccademous” – a young girl who was convicted of witchcraft in the 1600s and buried beneath this tree. Local students swear that when you walk down the path towards the tree, the ground will start shaking beneath your feet. (Possibly because there’s a large drainage pipe buried directly underneath?) Others have vanished down the path, never to be seen again.
Never mind that there are no records of any settlements in this area in the 1600s… this story has been around for at least a hundred years now, and it looks like it’ll stay around for at least another hundred!
