These photo’s are from Richard Flitz’s archive and a great treasure showing the original inhabitants (and our CURRENT ghosts!) of the Williams House
Richard and Chris were previous owners of the Inn and the two responsible for renovating the Inn and bringing her back to life with all of her grandness and luster!
Richard adds the following on the attached pictures:
Sallie one of our four resident ghosts. I REALLY did see her twice in the inn. This picture was taken by a guest who called us and said do not open the envelope until you call us we want to hear your reaction.
Please see the next picture and look and this picture and the little girl on the far left. Sallie died at the age of 9 in the home.
Little Sallie on the beach on Amelia Island in the late 1880′s with her brothers and sisters. The little boy on the right visited many of the guest at 3:15 in the morning.

Live Oak, Spanish Moss and Tales of Old Fernandina
September 25th, 2013
Thanks to Scott Moore for this shot of the Bailey tree (one block down from us here at the Williams House) and the infamous story that goes along with it! Kate Bailey left her mark in the historic pirate town of Fernandina Beach, Florida with her elegant Victorian home. She also made a mark on the adjoining street. The ancient, majestic live oak tree that still stands in the middle of Ash Street is a testament to Kate’s will. When she learned the tree was scheduled to be cut down in order for Ash Street to be paved, legend has it that Kate sat on her porch with shotgun in hand and dared any city worker to cut down the tree.
