Georgiana Cemetery

Georgiana Cemetery:

While interesting because of its age, history, and beauty, the Georgiana Cemetery may be best known as the burial place of a local murder victim and supposed ghost, Ethel Allen. Allen was just 19 years old when she was found murdered and mutilated on the banks of the Indian River Lagoon in the early 1900s. Nearly a century later, her murder is still unsolved, though there was a potential suspect who was never found. 

Perhaps due to the grisly circumstances surrounding Allen’s death, and the general eerie atmosphere of the old cemetery, there have been many reports of ghost sightings and the feeling of spirits in the area. Some believe that Allen’s ghost haunts the cemetery where she is interred. Adding to the curiosity, the headstone of Allen’s grave is handmade, making it very unique among the other graves in the cemetery. To do this day, her gravesite is regularly decorated by unknown benefactors.
