Haunted House stories get a lot of coverage worldwide, but a majority of them seem to be concentrated in America.
Some of the world’s most elaborately haunted manors and mansions, and even simple mid-town houses, are in America.
One place people would never expect to find a haunted house is in the tropics.
Jamaica has its share of haunted history.
From slave trades to colonization, the island best known for bringing reggae and tropical bliss to the western world has had the same rocky history as any modern nation.
And from that history, it has come to host many of its takes on strange and ghostly tales.
One of which is the legend of the White Witch on the grounds of Rose Hall in Montego Bay.
10 /10 Pre-Haunting Estate
The Rose Hall Great House, an elaborate and high-end mansion in Jamaica’s Montego Bay, was not owned by any native person to Jamaica but the daughter of immigrant settlers.
The house overlooked a sugar plantation that was worked on by slaves back in the 18th and 19th centuries.
As a Georgia-style plantation house, it also had Georgia-style rules regarding safety for the slaves: virtually none.
9 /10 Minding The Manor
The legends of the Rose Hall’s haunting did not start immediately.
The house was built in the 1770s by Fulke Rose, for whom it was named after, but later changed hands to one John Palmer in the 1800s.
Mr. Palmer owned and operated the plantation without incident until he met and married a young woman named Annie, a white girl born and raised in Haiti one day.
