More Horror Upon Horror
More than 100 years later, in 1934, there was another discovery near the supposed Fountain of Youth. Here, it was confirmed, was the burial ground of the Timucuan tribe.
This new finding meant that the bodies found in 1821 beneath the hospital had to be those of another native tribe killed off by the Timucuan people long ago.
The spirit of these lost natives still lingers in an eerie presence on the property, where they mingle with the lost souls of the hospital.
Mourning at the Museum
Today, visitors touring the museum can watch live demonstrations of procedures once performed at the hospital. Many guests report that they can still hear cries, moans, and screams of the spirits of past patients.
These sounds are especially notable in the “Mourning Room,” where people and family would go before someone passed and a priest would give their blessing. Here, people have reported various sounds, unexplained moving objects, and even misty apparitions. These apparitions often appear in hospital gowns, sometimes even with missing limbs from battle.
