Seven Sisters International House (purple) was built in 1892 and was the family home for entrepreneur and influential Ocala citizen Charles Rheinauer and his wife Emma. The couple moved in to the house in 1895 and remained there until they each died 30 or 40 years later. It is believed the house was possibly built on the very spot of a triage nearby Fort King. Her sister, The Scott House (pink) may or may not be on the site where a battle between soldiers and Seminole Indians took place. The original house was built in 1888 but burned down.
Some paranormal experiences include voices, shadows, footsteps, furniture moves, doors slamming, lights turn on and off, things move from one room to another, cold spots, people being tripped on stairs. Some spirits have been spotted as well, including a dressed-up female, a young boy, female wearing white and an old man.
