Where Can I Find The Creepiest Abandoned Places In Florida?
Annie Lytle is an eerie location - but these abandoned spots may be even creepier.
- Hillside Estates looks like a standard suburban housing division - but there isn't a single soul living there for decades. It was built in the 1970s, with over 90 houses still standing, but over the years it's fallen into disrepair. A massive scandal involving the housing board misusing federal funds led to the town being vacated in 2012, with the entire abandonment taking place over only 90 days. Many of the buildings are completely untouched today.
- The Suwanee Springs Bridge is also nicknamed Graffiti Bridge, but it has a more famous nomenclature - the Bridge to Nowhere. Tucked away in the woods, it was built in 1931 and operated as the main roadway in the park - but in 1971, it closed to vehicular traffic. It was never torn down, and is a popular spot for pedestrians and cyclists - but especially for grafitti artists, who have turned the whole span into a canvas.
- Stiltsville might just be the strangest location in all of Florida - a collection of wooden structures built ten feet above the water of Biscayne Bay. These isolated houses in the middle of the ocean almost look like something out of sci-fi, but they date back to the 1930s when a man named Crawfish Eddie Walker built the first one. He was soon joined by others who turned the water into a den for illegal gambling. At its peak in the 1960s, there were 27 houses on stilts - but nature had its way with the area, and only seven are left standing.
