Haunted Room in the Pirate House

Though the history records say otherwise, the Pirate House claims that Captain Flint, a character based on a real person in Treasure Island, died in this room, and employees and guests alike swear that his ghost still peaks out the windows.


The color of the shutters is called Haint Blue, which translates to Haunt or Spirit Blue. It was believed that haint blue and haint green around doors and windows would protect those inside from ghosts.

    A few years ago at the Pirates house, We took two pictures in pitch black in the room where Capt Flint supposedly died. There were two swirling images of light in each photo, yet there was no light source in the room. The area was off-limits, but we sneaked upstairs anyway. I also viewed a picture that a woman and mother took of the outside of the Pirate's House about 4pm that afternoon. In the photo, facing the street, was a ghostly but very clear image of an aunt jamima type figure hovering outside the top story window, over the awning. She had downloaded the photo to her laptop, and seemed just as surprised as the kids and everyone else in the restaurant viewing the image.
