I once stayed in the house where Robert the Doll was originally located in Key West www.artisthousekeywest.com...
The room is known as the Turett Suite and the whole place is steeped in atmosphere and it is said the Turret Suite has more than one ghost. A lady
in white is said to walk down the stairs. Although I did not actually see anything while I was there it was a very errie room.
It is said that Robert's original owner Robert Eugene Otto (Gene) was given the doll in 1904 by his grandfather when Gene was 4 years old. The doll
is made of cloth stuffed with straw. The stories about Robert the Doll are that he was placed in front of the turret windows of the suite (exactly
the place where the bed I slept in is) and passers by would say that Robert, turning his head, watched them walking by. Also people would say he
glared at them, making them very uneasy being anywhere near the doll.
This is just a bit of the info on Robert the Doll which may feed your knowledge. I would be very interested to know if anyone knows where Robert is
now??? Last I heard he was in a museum in Key West?
