“Ghost of the Treasure Coast”

Book Signing – Sunday October 29, 2017

Authors, Patrick and Tricia Mesmer will be on hand Sunday October 29th form 1:00-4:00pm, in the gift shop at the House of Refuge Museum, to sign copies of their new book “Ghosts of the Treasure Coast.”

The Treasure Coast is such a popular destination that some choose to never leave. From the spirits of ancient Indians who once inhabited the beaches, to the pirates who spied for passing victims from the safety of the inlets and coves. The region is infused with eerie, tragic history. Find out who haunts Gilbert’s Bar House of Refuge Museum. Authors Patrick and Patricia Mesmer navigate you through spooky tales of vanished sailors, wandering phantoms and lost treasure scattered across the ocean floor.

Patrick S. Mesmer is a project manager for a large corporation in South Florida. He also teaches at the local university. His passion is history and music. This is his third book. Patricia Ann Mesmer has a master’s degree in mental health and operates a private counseling business. Her passions are family, helping distressed people and ghost hunting.

They also offer a very successful and well-received ghost/ historical tour, of their hometown Port Salerno, out of the Port Salerno Fish House Art Center.
