6732 Magnolia Lane, Fort Myers, FL

(Fort Myers)


It is said that a boy once lived in this house and was constantly bullied by kids at his school and abused time to time by his parents. He finally had enough an hung himself in his closet for his parents to find. Everyone who has tried to live at this house ends up leaving due to feeling uncomfortable, moved furniture, voices, or noises. It is now an abandoned building swarmed with trees and grass consuming it with the numbers "6...6...6" painted in red amoung the front window. It is a big ghost story in Fort Myers and though there are countless stories and experiences about it (including cars not starting and high pitched voices and screams), documented information is difficult to find.

Hah humbug NEW
by: Eileen

SAw nothing haunted about this drug house. Ghosts, spirits etc would not waste their eternity haunting this full blown mess. I am ESP challenged. trust me, this house is just an unfortunate listing. However, 116 E N Shore Ave. NFM is certifiably haunted.

Grew up near it in the 90s NEW
by: Anonymous

I remember this house since I was little, growing up near it. It's as old as my parents house. I watched someone move in and try to add a addition to the right side of the orginal house. They got as far as putting the concrete block up with a roof and then they left.
I've been in this house 2 different times, the first in the early 90s and last about 10yrs ago. Our parents knew of a hanging in the house but never gave us details besides the owner being a wack job and not to go near that house. So of course that just made us want to go inside even more.

When us kids were in middle school, we would just go inside and stand in the wooden part of the house (left) originally a very small house, but as we stood there, we would hear moving above us, def you would here noises and a super creepy feel over you. None of us dare to go visit the house at night. Maybe my older brothers have better story's then I do.

I do remember walking home from school and seeing a dark figure standing at the front door way, the door was always open. It was almost like something wanted you to enter with it being open. I ran home as fast as I could.

I never went into that house again until I was older and courageous enough with my boyfriend. It was during the middle of the day and nothing happen.

Def stay out of the house, it just needs to be left alone. The owners know what happen in that house and don't want anyone in it for a reason.

Creepy as hell, don't think it's haunted though NEW
by: Anonymous

A short period of time ago a couple of us went here and got our trip on film. We went in the back door which use to be sliding glass but it's all busted and the first thing written above the back door is "death will soon follow" also inside are tags that say "Ted bundy" the mass murder. We saw an upside down cross with the quote "I see you" .... Needless to say this place is sketchy, I didn't hear or see anything to out of the ordinary but then again I didn't make it up stairs too creeped out

Proper Research NEW
by: Anonymous

Every previous story about the origin of this house is wrong. My parents are real estate agents and I, like many of you saw this place and wanted to know more, the truth. Due to my parents being Real Estate Agents, I am able to find a lot out about houses, and this one...hasn't been lived in since 1972. If any of you have bought a house where an inhabitant was murdered during the previous ownership, you'd know that the previous owners would be legally obligated to tell you, and have it publicly listed if the house was to be for sale. It was indeed listed, and the victim was the most recent owner Jean Ballantine.

Looking up the police report on her death, I learned that Jean Ballantine was a foster-mother, and like many, had different children filter in and out of her home. However there were other murders listed that had included her name when I searched her, and yet she had no part in any of them, only that the murders where apparently committed by children who were dispersed to other families following her brutal murder. These murders were all committed in the master bedroom where every inhabitant of the house was killed, excluding the Jean foster children who have not been seen since they were sent to their new families.

It is not unlikely that many of you, or your parents are familiar with the Ballantine name, they're almost a Fort Myers celebrity because suspiciously enough following this string of murders shows that the Ballantine name now owns every single house that had a family murdered by one of the Ballantine children, and each house as forsaken as the rest.

Like the families murder, Jean was found dead in the master bedroom. that would be the big room on the right side of the house, if you were interested.

ITS REAL NEW
by: Anonymous

This place does have one or more spirits in it. I know this because my friend recorded a video of him standing still and looking at the house, when he returned home he loaded it onto his computer and heard footsteps running around him, also saw a what seemed to be a demon looking out of the window, the house is VERY old and we all wonder why would it be such a big deal to just look at it if there was NOTHING there? Further investigation will prove them wrong and therefore the owner will not allow ANY licensed "ghost hunters" into his property, we also wonder why he is such an angry individual as soon as people ask question....

Who is the owner? NEW
by: Angel Dempsey

I think it's crap that you all add this to Haunted places. Because of so called rumors about the place. If you read the comments the owner himself states that nothing tragic has ever taken place here. It's obvious that the people who have posted this and that keep trespassing and vandalizing the place are a punch of young punks that don't know shit. You all say the owner is a Douche but you all don't know the owners current situation. And that defiantly doesn't give anyone the right to go on to the owners property. House was built in 1970 it's a beautiful place rather it's maintained or not. I do photography myself and find places like this eye moving. I would love to know who the owner of the place is. And perhaps get permission just to capture something so beautiful.

Neighbors know more. NEW
by: Neighbor

Ive lived in the neighborhood my whole life. No one has ever lived there. The owner is a douche for not taking care of it, so of course its going to get the reputation of "haunted". Its creepy, yes. But haunted... not. Its not worth being arrested over. Kids spray painted stuff on the walls, they didnt get there some magical way. Dont make this a bigger deal than it is.

Haunted? Maybe. Creepy? Definitely.
by: Anonymous

Went to check out this property at dusk. We pulled up on the side of the road and walked up the path to the front door. As mentioned before, the "666" painted on the front window gave us goose bumps. Finding the front door unlocked was another surprise. The door opened with the slightest touch and with trepidation most of our group turned on their flashlights and entered.

While most of the group was inside, the 6-year-old and I walked around the east side of the house to check out the back area. The side walls are unfinished, and we noted a large neatly-stacked pile of stones waiting to be installed.

I noted several pieces of scaffolding, as if someone had recently been working on the house. On closer inspection, the vines and shrubbery growing over the pipes indicated they'd been undisturbed for a long time.

I had a very uneasy feeling as I walked toward the very dark and cluttered back porch, so we backed off and left that exploration for a sunny afternoon.

Also of note is a dark, wide-open shed at the back of the property - again, something to explore when there is more light.

I found it interesting that there is no mailbox or driveway on the property. The west side of the yard has been recently mowed, but we attributed that to the neighbors, whose side yard abuts this property; they probably maintain part of the yard for their aesthetics.

This is definitely a place I'd like to spend more time exploring and researching!

crack house
by: NgrHntr

The inside looks like a crack house with graffiti everywhere. It was scary walking up to the dorr but after you are inside it is not scary at all. No rope upstairs either.

VERY TRUE
by: Anonymous

Went into this house! Front door was opened,its a huge house. Hanging in the upstairs closet was a rope! A blanket laying on the couch. Wierd. My daughter felt sometimes pulling on her belt and right before leaving heard a loud bang. The outside covered with brushes and trees, so spooky looking. The house is beautiful inside. Writtings on all the walls, bad things about God and the devil. Neighbors say its haunted and owners cant anyone to stay there because of the problems,noises and screams. Worth checking out!!!!! First house I ever seen that looked so scary. Wow

family confirms 'haunted' house
by: Jane

My family was in town for summer vacation and decided to have some fun and just drive by this house one night. This house sits vacant within a nice neighborhood, but the house stands out by having no mailbox and being surrounded by bushes and trees. It was really creepy at night. However, when we went the next day on the way back from the beach, we saw the '666' painted in red on the window on the left, but the weirdest thing was that the front door was cracked open even though it had been closed the night before. It's worth checking out if you want to get spooked.
