In the 1870s, the United States Government commissioned 10 structures to serve as safe havens for shipwreck survivors along Florida's Atlantic Coast. Today, only one of those buildings still stands and now serves as a museum. But the Keepers of the Martin County House of Refuge aren't certain that they are alone in the building after hours. Different smells permeate various rooms, a cold spot rests under the stairwell and both keepers have seen or experienced strange phenomena that just might be the lingering spirit of Susan Bessey, the wife of former Keeper Hubert Bessey, who served in the late 1800s.
