The Melting Pot had long been a site where I wanted to investigate. I had been to the location multiple times for nearly 20 years, documenting the stories that I heard about the location. When it closed during the COVID year, I feared that we would never get to investigate the building. However, when the location was purchased by a new owner and articles were put up online, I started to post inquiries into the legend of the haunting. The business owner reached back out to us and invited us to do a paranormal investigation. And thus the SPIRITS of St. Petersburg were finally able to check off a long term investigation goal on May 13, 2021.
