Ghosts & Gravestones of St. Augustine
Find a seat on The Trolley of the Doomed and discover the mayhem caused by the haunting souls of St Augustine on the Ghosts & Gravestones Tour.
A theatrical 'Ghost Host' will guide visitors through the sites of this city that have become a hangout for the dead. Tiptoe down the cement steps of the Old Jail and listen for whispers of those who once hanged from the gallows, or were violently murdered in their cells. Drive past the City Gate and wave to Elizabeth, a child who died of yellow fever in the 1800s, but still greets newcomers as they pass into the city.
If you're seeking a paranormal experience, then take a walk through the Tolomato Cemetery, a former Native Indian village where an abundance of strange lights, shadows, temperature changes, and apparitions have been reported to have happened. In a large, ancient oak tree, a boy is said to jump from branch to branch, then linger above the ground, smiling and dangling his legs. If you look closely enough, legend has it, you can look right through him. Learn the story of Dr. Frederick Weedon, who tampered with the malaria-ridden body of a Seminole chief and paid the consequences.
With all of the stories about the sinister history of St. Augustine, you'll be shivering with goosebumps and asking for more. Both the paranormal city and this tour have been featured on TV channels such as the Sci-Fi Channel, Travel Channel, and The Today Show. Get your tickets and join in on the haunting of a lifetime, or perhaps of your 'last time.'
