The only bona-fide haunted house in Punta Gorda, this home was built by James Sandlin in 1893. For many years it was the most expensive house in town. The Sandlins suffered many misfortunes and the house is said to be haunted by the spirit of his 14-year-old daughter who died tragically when she caught on fire ironing. It's been added onto extensively. Current homeowners reside in the modern accommodations at the rear of the property.
