Ten Most Haunted Places in Broward County
6. Coral Springs Medical Center
Apparently, a nurse who once worked at Coral Springs Medical Center haunts the building.
The story goes that the nurse became ill, or was in an accident, and was admitted to the medical center, where she once worked. She soon died from whatever was ailing her, and now stories have swirled that her spirit refuses to leave the hospital.
Her apparition has been seen floating throughout the hospital halls just in front of the main elevators. Some say she oftentimes will open the elevator for visitors before they can push the call button.
The doors will open on their own, with no one inside the elevator.
5. The Blue Anchor British Pub
Located on 804 E Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach, the Blue Anchor is a great place to ensconce yourself in English fare with fish, chips, and big-ass pints of beer. The pub itself was built in London in the 1800s and moved to Florida stone by stone in 1864.
But the pub is also known for its haunted history (and is quite proud of it).
According to legend, a woman named Bertha Starkey was hacked to death inside the pub by her jealous husband more than 100 years ago, when the man returned from sea and found her in the arms of another. And it is said that Bertha's ghost now roams the pub freely.
Patrons have reported hearing Bertha walking across the creaky ceiling at night. And, during a coronation of the anniversary of her murder, a half-inch glass shelf shattered and collapsed on its own.
There have also been reports of a loud, pitched wail coming out of nowhere and pots and pans in the kitchen crashing to the floor on their own.
