Built near the shores of Lake Okeechobee, this house was probably no different than the others around it when it was built back in 1934. Today though, the house is just a ghost of it’s former self.
According to a friend who spoke with the caretaker of the property, the former owner of the house was a woman named Jeanne McFadden who lived in the house her entire life. Practically having any family, she died around 2006 approaching the age of 100. She had a brother though, who lived in Miami but he refused to help her in any way. As her health deteriorated, so did her home.
The reason the house hasn’t been sold or demolished is because she remained the title owner even after her death. Earlier this year, the property changed hands to the Federal Government, and it seems the home will end up like many others – a dirt lot.
