  1. That's funny because I saw this one on television while watching Ghost Adventures. When I saw the title of your post I recognized the name, then it hit me that I saw it on television. It would be awesome to see it for real. That's when I learnd it was made out of some type of shell stone, which said can withstand harsh conditions. We were in Florida like 2 years ago, but we never really explored a lot of places. Thanks for sharing! Visiting via TT.
