Learn about St. Augustine’s Haunted History
As the nation’s oldest continually-occupied European settlement, St. Augustine’s long history is full of thrilling tales and haunted happenings. The city was founded 42 years before the famous Jamestown settlement and its cultural influences range from Native American to Spanish to British and many more. When you climb aboard the Trolley of the Doomed, you’ll hear our ghost hosts share historical and harrowing tales from St. Augustine’s past. It’s the perfect combination of fascinating and frightening.

Tour the Old Jail
St. Augustine’s Old Jail is one of the most haunted locations in the city. Tourists and locals alike visit the Old Jail to hear stories and experience the supernatural firsthand. Listed on the Florida and National Register of Haunted Places, the Old Jail was built in 1891 by Henry Flagler and designed by the same company that built Alcatraz a few years later. Conditions for prisoners were notoriously inhumane. Some of the most dangerous criminals were housed in the Jail’s maximum-security area and eight men were hung from the gallows. So don’t be surprised if you hear loud banging noises, see light orbs in photographs, or glimpse a ghoulish presence – it’s all part of the prison’s sordid past.

Hear about the Castillo de San Marcos
The Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine is a stunning stone fortress where the city’s grim past is immortalized. It is the only 17th-century masonry fort still standing in the U.S. and has been the site of many battles over the years. From inquisitions to starvation, the Castillo de San Marcos’ dark history is filled with terrifying tales - including sightings of ghostly Spanish soldiers patrolling the grounds and a love triangle with a tragic ending.

Hear about the Old Drug Store and Enter Potter's Wax Museum
Built on the edge of the Tolomato Cemetery sits one of St. Augustine’s most recognizable buildings, the Old Drug Store.  Unexplained noises, cold spots and shadows reportedly moving on their own make up only a few of the hundreds of documented supernatural occurrences. Learn the secrets to these hauntings that have plagued the Old Drug Store from the time it first opened in 1887. Afterwards get an exclusive nighttime experience inside Potter’s Wax Museum’s Chamber of Horrors for a unique retelling of the famed pirate Andrew Ranson’s gruesome execution.
