Miami Ghost Chronicles
A deserted leper colony, convent and hospital is slowly being reclaimed by the jungles on Chacachacare Island, which lies close to Trinidad, B.W.I.
For many years the Dominican sisters ministered to those who had been exiled to this island due to having contracted leprosy.
The echoes of the past are easily envisioned among the ruins where so many came to live and die.
For many years there have been reports of ghosts, especially the White Lady of Chacachacare, who is supposed to be the apparition of a nun who committed suicide. There are other reports of supernatural encounters since at least 2,000 lepers lived on the island during its 60 some years as a Hansenian Settlement.

Marlene at Miami Ghost Chronicles is a freelance paranormal investigator and writer.
Over the years I have had several ghost stories sent anonymously to me, and it's these quaint and subtle stories of hauntings that I find so fascinating, because you realize that ghosts make their prescence known in the most mundane of settings, and sometimes it's only in hindsight that we realize exactly what we were experiencing. I have excluded surnames and exact addresses in order to protect the privacy of families.
