This home dates back to 1905 and was located in West Palm Beach before being moved to historical park Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds in Royal Palm Beach. The home was originally a funeral parlor until the 1920s when Karl Riddle purchased it, turning it into a private residence. It is rumored to be haunted by a ghost named Joseph, who was an employee of Riddles. He hanged himself in the attic instead of coming face to face with his financial problems. His ghost is said to not be fond of men, and has been known to attack them. This location has been featured on TV's Ghost Adventures.

  • Extremely angry spirit

    Joseph is an extremely angry spirit, the angriest of the 3 Ghosts that haunt this house, while he does stay in the attic, he is known to wander, pulling hair and throwing things, I made the mistake of leaning on the attic door without realizing and immediately something got thrown in the attic

  • Recent visit with family

    Went to visit the Riddle house about a month ago. We were the only visitors to Yesteryear village that day. When we went to enter the Riddle house it was locked. A volunteer went to get the key to unlock it for us. As we waited I saw a figure in the upstairs window wearing a white dress, almost instantly my daughter asked me if I saw the figure wearing a white dress in the upstairs window. Proof positive to me. I know the house was empty and locked and my daughter saw the exact same thing I did. Very cool. Definite otherworldly feeling inside too, especially in the child's bedroom upstairs and at the entrance to attic stairs.
