Event Description: Special Halloween Meet-up

Wednesday October 31, 2007

11:00 PM until 1:00 AM

108 W. Commercial Street
Sanford, FL 32771

Built as a hotel in 1887 for Henry B. Plant, President of the Plant Investment Co. (PICO), this building served as a terminal hotel for the railroads and river steamboats that served Sanford. The architect was W.T. Cotter of Sanford (designer of the Cathedral of St. Augustine) and the builder was H.M. Papworth Construction Co. (Papworth was also Sanford's Fire Chief). The Turkish style resembles Plant's Tampa Bay Hotel. An onion dome originally topped the corner tower and a striped metal awning surrounded the first floor. For many years Bertha Takash ran a restaurant in the hotel. The brick building next door was also built by Mr. Plant in 1887 as additional retail space.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places!!

Local legends about the ghost(s) that haunt the PICO building abound. Come join us in the candle light to feel write your story. I?ll tell you about Susie Stendahl, a let?s say not so proper lady ?

A night to write and enjoy, refreshments, great writers a truly once in a lifetime experience.
