LOCATION SPOTLIGHT: THE COUNTY’S HOTTEST HAUNTS

October 8, 2020


The Gulfstream Hotel

Built in 1923 in Lake Worth Beach, the Gulfstream Hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places. Developers have salvaged the hotel from a foreclosure lawsuit and it is currently under renovation. The hotel is known to be haunted by the ghost of a six-year-old girl who is known to turn on TVs, make prank phone calls and mess around with the elevators. The ghost has been known to tap people on the shoulder and tug on women's skirts. According to staff, the hotel was the scene of a tragedy, back in the 1930's, when a young girl fell down the elevator shaft.


Coral Cut in Palm Beach

The rock outcrop known as Coral Cut in Palm Beach is said to be hiding a few hazards, from lost souls to crazy prisoners in the unusual canyon-like passage. Adding to the mystery is a window on the south side covered by bars, an opening most don’t notice unless they see an eerie glow at night when the street-light casts shadows across the rock and through the bars. “It’s an urban legend,” said author Robert Mykle, who mentions “the witch’s castle” in his book, Palm Beach Confidential. At the cut, he writes, “one can hear the forlorn moans of a mourning mother.” The coral hill houses a water pumping station and noises come out of it, as he describes. “All of that fuels the legend”.


The Riddle House

The historic Riddle House dates back to 1905 and was moved to Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds. The home was originally a funeral parlor until the 1920s when Karl Riddle purchased it, turning it into his private residence. It is rumored to be haunted by a ghost named Joseph, an employee of Riddle’s that hung himself in the attic because of financial problems. After that, it became hard to keep staff in the home due to murmuring sounds, furniture being moved and chains clanking in the attic. This location was featured on TV's Ghost Adventures.
