The New River Inn is a two storey beautiful piece of architecture in central Fort Lauderdale. It is the oldest hotel building that still remains. Located at 229 SW Second Avenue Fort Lauderdale FL 33301, this building is said to be home to ghost and spirit manifestations that can be seen between the hours of 11pm to 3am! This ghost in question is apparently the entity of the restless man, said to walk back and forth along the first floor and on the porch as if contemplating a problem, or, perhaps, waiting for someone to return. It is said if the entity notices the living he glares at them before he disappears into thin air. Others have reported that on seeing a living person, he continues to walk but seems agitated and angry. There are other ghosts said to inhabit the New River Inn – a certain gentleman by the name of P.N Bryan also haunts the building, as does the ghost of a young girl known as LuLu Marshall who between 5 and 7 years of age. It has been rumoured that, when questioned, she has responded to the living before doing her disappearing act. Admission is $10-$12 and includes a self-guided tour of the New River Inn Museum or a docent (voluntary guide)-led tour of the 1899 replica school house nearby, as well as the 1907 King-Cromartie house. The New River Inn is open from Tuesdays through Sundays 12pm to 4pm.
