City of Brooksville, Florida

The city hosts an annual Blueberry Festival in its downtown area with music performances. They hope to someday rival the famous Strawberry Festival in Plant City. The famously haunted May-Stringer House (now a historical museum) is also located in Brooksville. The 158-year old house is one of the oldest buildings in the area. A contractor named John L. May purchased the Brooksville property in 1855 and built a home for his family. His wife, Marena, died in childbirth while delivering their daughter, Jessie Mae, who died three years later. Ever since Hernando County began restoration attempts, they reported cold spots, unexplainable mist, objects moving, and a young girl’s laughter coming from an upstairs bedroom. Some have even heard a child wailing and crying for her mother, though there were absolutely no children allowed on the restoration site.
