    Mercy Manor, circa 1933, located at 918 Grace Ave, Panama City, is DEFINATELY HAUNTED and has been featured on the front page of the News Herald twice; last time was Oct 31, 2012. Spirits are not only inside the home, but linger around the grounds also. Numerous service technicians and providers, as well as visitors to the home have left with screeching tires out of fear. The spirit inhabitants are poltergeists who do more than create smells and frighten people. They are shadow people who come and go through a vortex that leads to a very large upstairs closet. Mercy Manor is registered in Historic Homes of Panama City and is currently awaiting it’s plaque.
