Not all spirits inhabit foggy streets in the dark of night. Sunny Jamaica seems to be rife with "duppies" (spirits). Perhaps our cruelest specter of all resides in Montego Bay. The Rose Hall Great House was once part of a large sugar plantation owned by the powerful James and Annie Palmer. Legend has it that not only did Annie, dubbed the "White Witch," do away with James and several additional husbands, but she practiced voodoo prolifically in the dungeon. She took on her slaves as lovers, then would torture and brutally execute them, even reportedly sacrificing babies in her rituals. Her slaves eventually rebelled and killed her, and she is believed to now roam the grounds both on foot and on a black horse. Her form is most often seen in one bedroom mirror.
In Mandeville, Northern Caribbean University residents claim to hear unexplained screeching sounds in their dormitories and have sudden feelings of panic. Manchester's abandoned church, Skull Point, is said to be haunted by slave James Knight from a nearby estate. He became a Christian and preached to fellow slaves, which angered the owner, who ordered James beheaded. His skull was placed on a pole as a warning to any other potential converts, and now tales of his rumblings are widespread. Finally, it is believed Kingston Harbor's Sea Breeze Avenue hosts the misty figures of a well-to-do couple and British Army officers.
