This former Cuban Consulate in Little Haiti not only has a creepy history but an eerie present. The original owner’s wife, Paula Milord, died suddenly after a leg amputation and was buried in the back garden by her husband. Since then, people have heard piano music and smelled coffee (both things Milord allegedly liked to do), and seen a one-legged lady floating in the hallway. The historic site went up for sale last November and is currently closed to visitors, but you can always drive by to get a glimpse.
Miami might be glamorous on the surface, but beneath its toned and suntanned facade, this city hides a sordid history. Before the drug-fueled crime spree of the ‘80s there was the mob-backed mayhem of the 1920s and, before that, decades of backwater blues as white settlers and Black migrant laborers forged a city from the swampland.
Instead of colonial-era taverns and Victorian mansions, Miami has historic graveyards, spirit-infested villas and deserted ghost towns for exploring. Whether you're seeking a spooky daytime activity before heading out to one of the terrifying haunted houses in Miami or you’re hankering for a unique day trip from Miami any time of the year, we've dug up some of the most haunted spots around Miami just for the occasion.
