While Palm Beach County is usually the opposite of spooky, during October we get a little festive. Here a few fun, local places to visit before Halloween.

Riddle House

Located in Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds, the Riddle House is said to be full of ghosts.

In the early 1900s, it was the home of the gatekeeper for a cemetery in West Palm Beach. Years later, it was moved to become part of the village. After the move, workers swore that their tools were mysteriously moved, and one man claimed a tool hit someone in the head.

Visitors have seen a boy playing in a bedroom and a woman getting ready for bed, according to reports.

Location: Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds - 9067 Southern Blvd., West Palm
