This post was originally published on February 3, 2013. I’m sharing it again as my team, Florida Suncoast Paranormal Investigations, will return to the May-Stringer House tomorrow.

The 158-year-old May-Stringer House in Brooksville, FL is one of the oldest homes in the area, not to mention the most haunted. Legend has it up to eight ghosts roam the property which today serves as a historical museum. The most famous ghost, however, is that of Jessie Mae, a lonely little girl longing for her mother’s touch.

Reader Submission: The Woodland Entity

creepy woods

“A large black entity lives in the woods outside our home in Panama City, FL. My family believes the reason we see so much weird stuff is because the land our neighborhood was built on was once woods. We believe the beings we encounter once resided in the woods that were destroyed to make our neighborhood.

Behind our neighborhood is a large recreation park. Our neighborhood and the recreational park are surrounded by miles of dense woods and swampy areas. Anyways, we often see the being outside our chain link fence in the backyard. It is a large black being that has appeared in our dreams and has shown itself a couple times to me and other members of the family. When this creature is present it scares the crap out of our three dogs.The being likes to knock on doors and windows but cannot come into the house (thank God!).

Florida Suncoast Paranormal Investigations

I’d like to give a shout out to my ghost hunting group, Florida Suncoast Paranormal Investigations (FSPI). I’ve mentioned the group a couple of times in the past, but they deserve a bit more praise as they took me in and taught me about the world of paranormal investigations.

Based in the Tampa Bay area, FSPI has investigated everything from private residents to famous hotels. Some of the investigations I’ve attended include the May-Stringer House in Brooksville, FL (my personal favorite) and the Brooksville Train Depot. However, FSPI has been going long before I joined and has explored such well-known sites as the Tampa Theatre, the Don Vicente Inn, and the Cuban Club, among others.

Right now, however, we’re a bit stuck in coming up with places to investigate. If anyone in Tampa Bay area or the surrounding areas has any ideas/suggestions/connections, we would greatly appreciate your help. You can get in touch over at the group’s Facebook page or email me at ghostsghoul@gmail.com. Thanks so much!

This pic comes from Reddit’s r/paraaccounts section. According to the OP, he/she snapped this photo while house hunting in Lake Wales, FL last June. Does the image show a ghost or is it a simple reflection?
