Micanopy - The Herlong Mansion

Inez was the oldest of 6 siblings. They fought for 20 some odd years over the house after their mother passed away. The day Inez took possession of the house she had a diabetic seizure and died in her childhood bedroom. That room remains haunted. The Herlong Mansion is now a bed & breakfast and has been investigated by professional ghost hunters and labelled as positively haunted.
Many believe that Inez is responsible for most of the oddities that go on in the mansion. She is said to haunt her old third floor bedroom and some have even seen her apparition in the mirror there, floating through the room behind them. When they turn from the mirror to look behind them, she is no where to be seen.

Many who have visited this home have also reported the door to Inez's room, as well as other guestroom doors, opening and closing on their own.

Several people have reported hearing footsteps on the stairs and seeing a fast-moving mist going up or down the steps.

On the second story veranda, one guest was enjoying her coffee and watching the sun come up when suddenly she felt she was being watched. She turned to find a woman staring at her in the doorway. Within seconds the woman vanished into thin air!

Maybe Inez just decided that, after enduring an eighteen year battle for the home, she has the right to stay as long as she wants. Whatever the reason, she seems to be harmless and she doesn't usually bother guests.
