Bordering Ten Thousand Islands and the Gulf of Mexico, Chokoloskee is known for its fishing, bird watching and kayaking through the mangrove jungles of the Everglades. Many of the 300 people who live here, in the 10,000 Islands area of the Everglades, will tell that there may actually be more ghosts in town than living souls. And that many of them make nocturnal visits to Ted Smallwood’s General Store, one of the most unique museums in Florida. There are spittoons and fly-swatters, wooden rocking chairs, canning machines, school supplies, wagon wheels, and animal skins. If these walls could talk, they might tell the stories of legendary characters like Edgar Watson, who some folks feel still inhabits the store.
