Do you know about Robert The Doll?

Robert The Doll is an allegedly haunted doll that is housed at the East Martello Museum, in Key West, Florida.

He was once owned by a painter and author Robert Egeune Otto, who went by Gene. It’s generally thought that Robert was given to Otto as a present from his grandfather following a trip to Germany. He gave the doll his first name, Robert.

Gene would take the doll everywhere, as he traveled the world with his parents.
