I own two homes in Port St. Lucie (just down Route 1 from Fort Pierce), and have seen articles concerning the Boston House in the Port St. Lucie Tribuneand the Hometown News. Drive down the Indial Drive and past the Boston House whenever we’re in Ft. Pierce. Never knew about the haunting until I came accross it on your website.

I grew up in Fort Pierce and i have heard about the boston house for years. We even went there in grade school, eveyone knows that is haunted but this isnt the story i have heard for years. You might want to do a search and check it out, the woman was looking for her family not sure how they vanished but they did. i remeber a newpaper once writing that there was a trinket box in one of the old bedrooms with some dust in it and it would be spread on the bed in the middle of the night.

We went over to the Boston House this afternoon sightseeing. Not being familar with the story of the house, Bev, who is a sensitive, happenned to look up at the attic window and thought she saw a woman looking out towards the ocean. She also had a feeling about the crawl space (underground basement ? ) on the property. Any one willing to comment?

I grew up in Ft. Pierce. I believe there was a sheriff that was shot on second street, near the Boston house, and was taken to the Boston house where he died. This was sometime around the turn of the century maybe early 1900’s.

I killed the janitor in a throw-down drug deal gone bad. The real deal “so-to-speak” is the black guy, janitor–was selling bunk heroin to some college girls gone wild. After I heard about this, I too wanted a “peace of the action” so I visited good ol’ Jackson (action Jackson as we called him.)

He gave me the real product and I cut it up and made bunk product out of it and he got real mad because I was selling the the college girls. From that moment in time, we were sworn enemies.

I killed him in self defense so I got off. He really was NOT a janitor I guess but he lived around the mops & buckets.

what the hell are you talking about this **** is about the haunted boston house not about baby libbie and uncle will….sorry for your loss but lets stay on subject “The Boston House”
the boston house is haunted i saw a naked lady in the window playing with her nipples calling for her little boy and husband….it scared the **** out me she was about 150 years old i seen right through her to the attorney in the back ground…..he was right there calling with her it must have been that darn sheriff they were talkin about above…..that is proof there that place is haunted i seen it…yes i did….

I used to live in Fort Pierce, and The Boston House IS indeed haunted. But no one knows the real identity of the spectre. Some say that it’s a woman who killed herself because her husband was being unfaithful. Some say that it was a couple of kids that were killed by a transient. Some others say that it was a whole family killed over money for food. But everyone who wrote a comment about The Boston House in Ft. Pierce that stated that it isn’t haunted should do their own investigating. And the guy who lives in Iowa should stay in his own state!

Sandy,
There are ghosts mentioned in the bible – along with demons. I pray you pay more attention to your bible reading and less time making other’s roll their eyes toward religion.

I lived in PSL and Ft. Pierce I graduated from psl high.. there are alot of places there that are said to be haunted. especially on Indian River Drive. There is the “Witches graveyard” on IRD as well.. it all depends on what you believe.

Ty says:

October 21, 2006, 9:29 pm

I live in Avon Park, Florida not too far from PSL or Ft. Pierce. I have family that lives there. I myself have not heard of these stories about Boston House or Indian River Dr. I am a private investigator, and even though I am trained to go on facts, I have learned that just becouse you haven`t witnessed something yourself does not mean it hasn`t occured.I believe that this is more than likely true of hauntings. Have an open mind!

Scott says:

October 25, 2006, 11:40 pm

I grew up in Ft.Pierce and heard the stories surrounding the Boston House and I know for a fact through research at The Fort Pierce Historical Museum located Under South Bridge that a women who lived in the Boston House lost her Son and Husband to The Atlantic Ocean back in the 1900s and she supposedly waited in the top floor looking for there return till she died im not 100 percent certian how she died i heard all of them, it was of some disease, or of a broke heart, or from old age, or hanging herself research it yourself through public files. Anyways The Boston House is now an attourney’s office which has been rumored that some sort of apparition has been seen looking towards the ocean with a face of sorrow I’ve Personally never seen this but then again I’ve never really looked that hard or waited around to see it happen. I’ve also heard The while a secretary was working there she experience the building shaking and the roof caving in at that point she ran out of the room and return later with her employer finding the room in order and perfectly fine. I hope this clears up something about the Boston House. And personally I believe that among The Boston House there are quite a few haunted places in Ft.Pierce and St.Lucie County it has a long history and it has had its far share of natural and unnatural deaths

Scott says:

October 25, 2006, 11:48 pm

Correction Thats The St.Lucie Historical Museum

I grew up in Ft. Pierce and not only is the Boston House haunted but there are several other places along Indian River Dr. that are also haunted. There are also several places in the old part of Ft. Pierce that have been known to have supernatural activity in them.

Donna says:

Hi,

I believe in hauntings. What I cannot BELIEVE is how many Americans do not have a command of our English language and cannot spell to save their lives. PATHETIC!

Katie says:

October 29, 2006, 9:40 pm

I was born and raised in Ft. Pierce, but I’ve never heard anything about the Boston House. My best friend still lives down there in the drive so I’ll have to go check it out. We have been to the Witches cemetary as kids, and even though we went during the day, I’d totally believe any stories about that place. I’ve heard several stories about the old McCarthy house there on the drive too. I’ll definatley have to make it a point to look up more places next time I go down to visit. Let me know if anyone has any suggestions.

the least you can do is come up wit a beleaveable story!!

December 14, 2006, 2:07 pm

With all due respect Sandy. I believe in ghosts more than religion(s). Religion is evil and the cause of more deaths and wars than anything else on this planet. Ghosts sightings are a personal experiences that don’t require years of mass brainwashing from everyone around you. When it comes to ghosts you either believe your own eyes and feeling or you don’t. With religion you are required to live your life accoring to other peoples interpretations of ancient writings.

February 9, 2007, 1:48 am

OK. I live in Port Saint LUcie right now. I heared of the Boston House from a friend. None of us knew anytrhing about it except that it was haunted. My friend and I went up there one day just to see if we saw anything. Like i said, we didnt know he story, but something drew me to the attic window. Much to my surprise, we saw the faint silouhette of a person looking out the window for a very long time. At first, i was skeptical, but then i saw it move around quite a bit, then go away, then come back. I did not fuully believe in ghosts until this happened. I was still skeptical until i read the story of the house today, and saw that what i had seen was exactly what other people had seen. This has made a true believer out of me. And for all you sketics in the area….go there…you will see. I have seen her both times i have visited this amazing place.

Hi. I like this story, it sounds cool. I would be totally spoked out! Has it really been writen in the news, or did you just say that to make it sound more real? I am not saying that the story is not true, just that I don’t think they would write something like that in the news.

there is a cemetery on Indian River Drive if you slow down with your car at night (hit the brakes slightly) tall some one there are red eyes in the cemetery. The will see the reflection from a grave marker. You need to be heading north from Jensen Beach to Fort Pierce.

Philip Pettey says:

July 18, 2007, 9:58 pm

My name is Philip I was born in Ft. Pierce. I have heard storys about the Boston House and have done research on the house and have talked to people that have been in the house. They say they have fealt somthing with them in the house. The most populer story I have heard is that there was a family of three back when the water came almost to the door when there were docks not pavement. The story goes that one night a boy and his father went out fishing and the mother went up stairs to look out to see when they came home. She waited all night and they never came home. Its said that if you look in the attic window at night you can see the greeving women waiting for her loved ones to come home.

I lived in Martin/St Lucie County area for 22 years. Back in the 1900’s, Fort Pierce was, and still is (to a lesser extent), a fishing port. The Boston House on Indian River Drive overlooks the Indian River, not too far from the Fort Pierce Inlet.

Hutchinson Island, the barrier island that forms the fork of St Lucie River, served as protection from the Atlantic Ocean.

Indian River Drive, on the mainland was a main thoroughfare from Stuart, Fla (then known as Pottsdam), to Fort Pierce. There were no bridges to Hutchinson Island during this era, it was only accessable by boat until the 10 cent wooden bridge was built in Stuart at a later date.

Many of the houses on Indian River Drive had, or may still have what is known as a widow’s walk on the third floor or roof of the house. These were platforms or “porches” that overlooked the river/inlet so that the wives of the fishermen could sit in view of the river/inlet and see thier husband’s vessel return from the sea loaded with fish.

It is rumored that the woman that haunts the Boston House in Fort Pierce lost her fisherman husband and son to to a storm in the Atlantic sometime in the early 1900’s. She is still waiting for their return.

There is currently (1997) a lawyer’s office in the house. Every so often, she has been sighted walking the widow’s walk. Several people have experienced a chilling breeze in the stairway leading to the second floor, and the feeling that someone was passing by as they were climbing the stairs. Some have reported the faint smell of a woman’s perfume as the hair stood up on the back of their necks.

Fort Pierce is still a fishing port. I think one or maybe two fish houses still remain. I haven’t lived there since 2004.

You guys are funny. Go USA. As far as the hauntings; I’ve never seen a ghost, but it’s sure fun to believe in them. That said, I hope I NEVER see a ghost so I can avoid crapping my pants. Thanks for keeping me informed of the places I should stay away from.

Kaitlin says:

October 24, 2007, 5:18 pm

i have lived in ft. pierce for about 11 years now, and everyone and their dog knows about the Boston House. i went to school across from that house, and have heard the stories for as long as i can remember. But i dont recall hearing about a woman hanging herself. The story goes, that her husband and son went out on the river for a day of fishing, and never came home. She’s said to still be watching and waiting for them to return on the top floor of the building. I’ve talked to people that know people who have seen things in there.. like papers being shuffled around and copy machines going off. It’s pretty crazy, and I think its kinda cool.
rock on fopo!

Kaitlin says:

October 24, 2007, 5:23 pm

Hi, just reading through your threads, I’m a paranorma investigator and the only place I truly believe is haunted is FIT/old Leach Mansion on IRD. I’ve captured a few weird EVP’s in there, scary place. As far as the “Witch cememetery’, I saw it up close for the first time last week, mostly family plots which extended back pretty far. The people who told me it was a witch cemetery I thought were mistaken, all I saw were masonic symbols on the graves then as I was about to leave I checked the very back head stone and sure enough not only was it a pentagram, but an inverted pentagram which means for them to have that carved on their grave you have to be very deep into it. I was wondering what stories about the cemetery anyones heard? I plan on doing a full investigation next week. Thanks.

Rhonda says:

November 28, 2007, 1:39 pm

I was born and raised in Ft. Pierce. I have been in the Boston House. And I have heard all the stories about the women. I do beleive her spirit remains there. I was sitting in the waiting room while my husband was meeting with his lawyer, I did smell roses
and a door closed by its self. There was no way a draft could have closed the door. As for the cemetary, if it is the one I am thinking about. We used to party there when we were kids. We never saw or heard anything. Jay, I am very interested in what you find out in your investigation. I hope you will write again about what you find out.

Kelsy Smith says:

November 30, 2007, 10:48 pm

Thats not the story the locals tell. The story is that a women and her husband and son once lived in the Boston House. One day the husband and son went out fishing and never returned so to this day the woman waits looking out of the attic window for their return. I know someone who works in the Boston House and they told me that the ghost kept blowing her papers off her desk so one day my freind got agrivated and yelled stop and since then the ghost has never done it again.
Have you heard about the ghost in the PP Cobb building
its a really old building in downtown Ft peirce. the ghost moves the furniture around at night. He only moves the furniture in a few rooms on the second floor. If you tell him to stop he will for a while. I dont know the story but i have heard him moving the furniture at night. One night i was downstairs below the room and me and my freind were talking about ghosts and she said that she didnt believe in ghosts. Right when she said that we heard a loud crashing noise. Then we heard noises like someone was moving furniture around. the next day we went up to the room and asked the people who were renting it about what happened and they said oh yeah its a ghost. You can hear him moving around the furniture almost everynight.

if you all want to know the real story behind this boston house, i have had an expirience first hand. as i was walking home from the store i was in a bit of a crumy mood so i decided to take a litle detour to see some of the sights along the drive. as i was walking past i looked up into the window of the top story and saw a womans face. i could not believe it! the storys were true. i went to get a closer look and as i was walking up the steps she vanished. i decided to take a look around the house and in the side window there was a shadow. the shadow was what looked like an older woman in a dress. she kept looking out at me and it was freaking me out. as she would peek out of the blinds i could see nothing inside but the shadow would still be there as if a person was standing there. freaky huh? its true man, i swear!

There is a park in Port St Lucie that is “claimed” to be haunted. This park is attached to the C-24 canal. There are trails and a fishing spot. I’ve been to the park, but it was a while back. There is a trail out in the back field, it’s not attached to the other trails. I didn’t go, but my ex did. I told him about the murders that happened back deep in the woods that I read about. There is this one tree that is claimed to have a spirit and cannot be cut down. I’ve read about it on different websites, but would be interesting to find out if there is anything out there.

Hey guys.. Ive read all the posts about the Boston House and then the others leading to a “witch cemetery”.. So, last night, since we were bored out of our minds.. My sister n I took a drive trying to find this place with no luck.. If anyone has a landmark or something that would make it easier to pin point, I would really appreciate it.. I have a strange hobby of photographing cemeteries n head stones..

Thanks for the post.. They all were informative…

i was born and raised in fort pierce and have lived in the area almost my whole life (20plus years). When i was a kid, my older sisters told me about the BOSTON HOUSE being haunted. The woman hanging herself i remember, but what freaked me out was what my sis told me happened later. Late 1980s or early 1990s another woman had a paranormal experience in the BOSTON HOUSE. She was heading downstairs (from the attic, im guessing) and a force pulled her back up until she finally forced herself back downstairs and out of the building. I definitely believe that place is haunted because i have heard of way too many incidents concerning that place and the events and hauntings that took place.

Okay I to believe it’s haunted but the house was built 8 years later! How could someone hang themsleves when the house wasn’t even built. I have had 2 experinces there, they are a cold spot which might have been her touching me (the woman waiting for her family)and actulally seeing her.

welll when i was in middleschool i went to dan mccarty middle( who of which owned the boston house but lived across the street right next to the boston house) and we always walked through downtown cause they couldnt afford a real feildtrip but the tour guides said that her husband and kids went fishing and they never returned so she was worried and stared out the window everyday hoping they would come back. =p thats what they told me!

i have been to the boston house but never seen the ghost. The story that i herd was that the father and son went fishing across the street in the river and they were swept away by a current. i also went there in grade school. there are many huanted houses in fort pierce florida for any thrill seekers. and may good ones in jensen beach about 14 miles south.

Here is a website that will help clear things up a little.Also I was refering to two different stories about the hauntings. 1) the woman who hanged herself and 2) the Perkins family.

The haunted park a couple of you were talking about earlier, Oak Hammock.. ive been there a few times..ive lived in psl (port st lucie), for ten years now… every once in a while me and gf and a couple friends would mess around in the park, outta sheer boreddom.(coming from someone who lived in a haunted house for years before i moved here, so i believe in haunting spirits and ghosts). and the park is NOT anything to worry about. the story is that three girls were murdered under the “haunted” tree or also knows the devils tree, and every once in awhile you could hear screams coming from the tree,from the park exit, and the girls bathroom..like i said the park is not anything to get exited about its a blocked of trail walk-way after 7PM…and port st lucie pd patrols the area…but if you want to try the tree and try your luck, there are two trails that lead you to the tree, the right side,by the river, and the left side (by the picnic tables)… once you get back in the trail, its the biggest tree back there you cant miss it..PS. if anybody’s gunna try it, bring a flashlight, because there are people back hiding in there just d***ing around wearing black hoodies…just to scary you….they wont kill u, just scare you for laughs….be careful though…its dark back there…. thanks…

THX Chewy. I’ll be sure to take ur advice if I to Oak Hammock to see the tree. I live here in fort pierce so it is a disgrace to me that the story should be the one you can’t prove in any way. I have even done a report on the house and all the reports I read had to do w/ either the the incident that happened with the youngest Jones( orignal family in the Boston House) or the Perkins story. Not one of the reports had to deal w/ the woman that hung herself. SO HA!!! take that!!

I can tell you that the story of the hanging isn’t founded in fact. There are quite a few unique occurrence at the Boston House, though. I’ve detailed as many of them as possible on The Grim Society website- you can find the post mentioned above includes all of the factual evidence we were able to gather on the history of the house.

In regards to Oak Hammock Park, we have also done quite a bit of research into the reported activities at that location. The information we were able to turn up can be found under the post ‘Examining An Urban Legend’ here: http://thegrimsociety.com/2007/09/25/examining-an-urban-legend/

We also have done a bit of follow up, which can be found under the search key ‘The Devil’s Tree’, which you can pull up here:

I hope this helps to clear up any confusion about these two locals.

Why don’t they just hire the ghost lady as a secretary? It’s not like ghosts that haunt places have anything better to do. Gotta get boring don’t ya think?

Well, I heard a tragic romantic story,it was the mom, the dad and the son who lived there and one day, the dad took the son fishing and they never returned from their trip. So, the mom never left the window. They say she is still waiting for them to return,she has been watching out the window ever since, the poor dear. No one knows what happened to the dad and the son. It is a mystery. Passerbys say they have seen her watching out the window. I went there before on the outside with some friends we sat on the porch and it wasn’t evil and scarey. Its really a calm place.

Is this the same story where the lady was waiting for her son and husband to return from sea. And she look out at the river to wait for them but was told theyv had preished so she hanged herself. But still waits at the window waiting and watching? Because i have been there before and i think i saw her! And it was in Fort Pierce. Which next to my city. PSL. I think it was called the boston house and people if you have never been to the place then dont say its fake. Maybe the person didnt have many resources to choose from.

I live in Fort Pierce, and I have been inside the, “Boston House”. It used to be a lawyer’s office if memory serves me right. While I was inside of this house I felt as if something was watching me. I remember waiting with my Grandma to see the attorney and looking out the window to see a reflection of a female dressed in the late victorian era clothes. I asked the secretary if she ever saw anything funny here and she told me that the place was haunted and she did not like being there alone. That must have been some 15 years ago now, whenever I go for a walk downtown I look up into the windows there and sometimes see the same lady looking out the window at us-she looks very distressed as if she has lost a child or other close family member.

@Luna
I read your blog site and I have some interesting information for you concerning this site.

My son was doing a research project for school on the paranormal and we decided to use this location sine it was close to home and we could take him to the site. In my search for information I stumbled across a city official that gave me some interesting information on the site. I’ve lived here for 20+ years and as much as I personally have been to the site in search for the location on the tree have never found it. However, the city official I spoke to cleared some things up for me and made it very clear why I, or anyone for that matter, can not locate the tree. The tree was actually cut down, the rumors that chainsaw broke and axes flew off the handles is just that. A rumor or better yet a urban legend. When the parks and recreation took over that land it was asked that for respect for the family’s of the victims the tree be removed. And it was. The person that I spoke to was there the day it was removed and the stump was dug up and hauled off by a huge flatbed. The city then built (ready for this one?) the pavilion in the spot where the tree was!!! Just to the left of the playground and yes, the bathrooms. This is certainly explains the activity being so strong in the bathroom and immediate surrounding area. And it makes sense, considering in most articles I have read on Gerard Schaefer, the bodies were found right next to the immediate area by the C-24 canal. The fisherman hung up there by the canal, I highly doubt they went hiking in the surrounding woods.

Anyhow, we got some evidence last night at the pavilion and by the bathrooms on video. We will be further reviewing the footage today to see if it can be debunked or not. I will let you know if I find anything worthy of sharing if you are interested. let me know if you are interested.

Cheers

Named for its location on Boston Avenue in Fort Pierce, the Boston House is believed to be one of the more haunted locations on the Treasure Coast. The house, originally known as Cresthaven, was built in 1909. It is believed the house, now a law office, is haunted by Aleaceon Perkins, who is still waiting for her husband and son who were lost at sea in the early 1900s.
There have been reports of guests visiting the Law Offices of Phillips and Ziskinder experiencing paranormal encounters with the spirit of Perkins. Some have reported seeing a white light coming through the walls and a vision of a red-haired woman in a tattered white dress calling for help.
