Rose Hall Great House, Jamaica
According to the legend, the spirit of “Annee Palmer” haunts the grounds of Rose Hall Plantation near Montego Bay. The story states that she was born in Haiti to an English mother and Irish father and spent most of her life in Haiti. When her parents died of yellow fever, she was adopted by a nanny who taught her witchcraft and voodoo. She moved to Jamaica and married John Palmer, owner of Rose Hall Plantation. Annee murdered Palmer along with two subsequent husbands and numerous male plantation slaves, later being murdered herself by a slave named “Takoo”.
But, apparently the ritual that should have ensured that her malevolent spirit remained entombed was bungled, and her evil spirit endures. Guests that tour Rose Hall claim to hear babies crying, whispers in the dungeon or the sound of her footsteps rushing across the ballroom floor.
