Solve the Fruitland Park Mystery

The Mysterious Old Livingston House with author Jeffrey Lamb will be featured during the Festival of Reading on Tuesday, April 5th at 5 p.m. The house used in the movie was built in 1894 and has only known two families. The Stanaland’s built the house, and the Lloyd’s bought the house in the late 1940’s. The Stanaland’s lived and worked in the turpentine/orange grove business. Nancy Stanaland lived in the house and raised her family and died there. Two of Nancy’s daughters died at age 4, 3 years apart, both on October 10th and were buried in the family graveyard on the property. Nancy is still seen present day in the house. The clues don't seem to make a lot of sense but everything comes together inside the creepy old Livingston House.
