|Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island is host to more than just beach goers|
In 1923, Henry Curry, resident of nearby Bradenton, built a house along the shore of Bradenton Beach. It is said that over the years, the house became inhabited by various spirits who were most likely former residents or had ties to the home in some way. One of them was a woman who was reported to have drown out at sea when the ship she was sailing on wrecked and sank. A young boy and his ghostly dog that appears to be a dalmatian have also been spotted in the Curry house. Another ghost said to haunt the beach side home was what appeared to be a captain or a sailor who smoked a pipe and wore clothing that of a seaman. Another spooky trait of the home was that it always smelled of orange blossom perfume, even from the outside.

Eventually, the house was torn down because no one wanted to purchase it. Condominiums have since taken it's place. However, the phantoms of the Curry house may still linger in the area. Shadow people have been seen walking the sandy shores of Brandenton Beach. There is one spirit in particular that appears in the form of a black shadow with some sort of hat. This Black Phantom who may be the ghost of the seaman from the Curry house, has been seen by many at various times of the day including broad daylight, moving through the trees and walking across the beach to the waters edge where it just seems to disappear into the sea.
