The Ma Barker House- Lake Weir, Florida
Mrs. Blackburn and her four sons rented this lakefront property in 1934, and everything was fine for a few weeks until it came out that she was actually the infamous criminal matriarch Ma Barker, who helped her sons on kidnapping and robbery stints several times. The FBI closed in on them and fired 2,000 rounds of ammunition at the house until Ma and son Freddie were both dead.It was the longest FBI shootout in history, lasting four hours.
Now the ghost of Ma is said to dwell the home and likes to switch lights on. Freddie was apparently evicted via exorcism years ago. The owners were able to sell the land earlier this year, but the house itself remains unsold and will remain onsite until it’s moved 800 feet away or dismantled entirely and moved elsewhere. Marion County wants to buy it and is currently looking for funding to cover the $250,000 asking price.
