Long Description:
Palmer House is a one and a half-story wood framed residence built in the Greek Revival architectural style. It was built by Martin Palmer for his son Dr. John Palmer between 1850-1874, and is rumored to be haunted.

"This house was built at the turn of the 20th Century by a Dr. Palmer Senior. His office was conveniently located by his house. Today, it has been utilized as an antique store. Big Bend Ghost Trackers and North Florida Paranormal Research has investigated this site in the past. At night, they say the dead come alive.

Dr. Palmer was the local mortician who rumors say would experiment on the bodies before they were buried. He also believed bodies should be buried with their blood, so he kept the drained blood from the bodies in a bucket. Once the casket was laid in the ground, his assistant would dump the bucket into the grave before it was covered up. One night during an argument, the assistant threw a bucket of blood at the doctor, leaving a stain on the wall. Through many attempts, the stain could not be removed. Finally, the wall was completely replaced."
