The town got its unique name from the man who built the plant and founded the town, William John Howey, and from the rolling hills that surrounded the area. The town owner once lived lavishly, but then his home became an abandoned Florida mansion with an eerie feeling about it. Let’s take a closer look at this haunting abandoned mansion in Florida.
