Tour description provided by Viator

WARNING... This tour is not for the faint of heart!

Embark on an adventure like no other as you journey through to the other side on the Ghosts & Gravestones Tour. Hop of the TROLLEY OF THE DOOMED and listen to haunted tales that surround one of the spookiest and most well known sites for supernatural occurrences, the city of St Augustine.

On your tour you will visit the Old Jail where you will learn about the many prisoners and practices that took place here. See where the Sheriff and his wife and family lived - adjacent to where the prisoners were housed.

Once inside the Old Jail, listen quietly for voices in the night; guests have reported hearing cries for help as they walked through the hallways. Be extra careful not to run into resident ghost, Charlie Powell, an inmate who served his time, yet was never set free.

Built in 1891, the Old Jail housed prisoners for over 60 years and many criminals met their maker here at the end of a hangman's noose. Listed on the Florida and National Haunted Places Register, the Old Jail has been the site of countless supernatural occurrences. Is St. Augustine really haunted? Only you can answer that question for yourself.
