Yeah, it was really fun. Next year I'm definitely dressing up. I got picked on a lot about not being in costume. XD

I went into two of them. I couldn't take pics, though. One of them had a piano from 1900 inside. It was neat. The pic of that last house is supposedly haunted. They've been trying to restore it, but the next day the stuff they've repaired would be broken again.

Creepy. You'd think the ghosts would want their stuff fixed...

Well, once World War II started, the island was abandoned. A lot of the families didn't really care about them since they were just vacation houses and most of them were from up north (Yankees owning an island in the deep South heh heh...). Anyway, once the island was condemned, this family was ticked off and wanted to keep their house, but lost the battle, so people say the sisters haunt it.

Wow. ...But if the island was condemned, how could you visit it? Was it uncondemned?

In the 70s they opened it to the public and began restoring the cottages and such. What I love about it is the fact that 65% of the island can't be touched in any way.

It can't be used for commercial reasons. 35% of it can, but most of the stuff that is there is the convention center, four hotels, a gas station, a Dairy Queen, a few seafood restaurants, and some little gift shops, some residential housing, and a couple of gold courses.

Is it a historical district or something, these houses?

Yes. The Carnegies, Vanderbilt's, J.P. Morgan, and several other big names hanged out and had houses here.

Wait. I lied. It was the Rockefeller's not the Carnegie's. The Carnegies had a mansion on a different island down there, though. It got burned down in the late 50s, so it's ruins now.
