Do you dare join the other brave souls aboard the Trolley of the Doomed to experience the strange, macabre and unusual side of Key West at night?
Your voyage begins with your Ghost Host, an unusual individual even by Key West standards, who will be your guide as you wander the streets of historic Old Town aboard the Trolley of the Doomed in search of the forgotten souls. Their tales of murder, disease and misfortune will take us out of the present and into the past in search of lost tombs, strange dolls, and the Lady in Blue.
On the Ghosts & Gravestones tour, you will pass by some of the most tragic and most sacred sites of the island such as the Grotto of our Lady of Lourdes, which protects the city from hurricanes, the African Slave Cemetery - site of the final resting place for 15 slaves who perished from their treacherous voyage - and even Captain Tony’s Saloon. You probably think it is only a bar... but is it? Even the majestic St. Paul’s Church, founded by Key West’s finest families, has secrets…
Hear the tales of polygamy and a wife scorned for haunting her former home, lynching of a love lost and revenge. MEET a paranormal rock star and WALK through the fort that was home to those dying of the dreaded fever... yellow fever.
A visit to the East Martello Fort, haunted in its own right, is even more creepy as it is the home of Robert the Doll. Robert was a gift to young Gene Otto from a family maid skilled in the black magic of Voodoo. It was clear from the start there was something not right about Robert. Strange things would happen when Robert was around - Odd voices, items missing and always: “Robert did it” ... a skeleton in shackles, gravestones of early settlers and Dr. Von Kossel’s beloved Elena… Many have heard the tales of the lost love of Karl Von Kossel and Elena Mesa; but do you know the whole story?
