Ghosts & Gravestones Tour
The Ghosts & Gravestones Frightseeing Tour invites guests on a spooky adventure to experience St. Augustine's darker side. The tour is presented by Old Town Trolley Tours and passes by the Huguenot Cemetery and some famously haunted buildings in the downtown area, while guests are entertained with the strange and unusual tales of murder, mayhem and tragedy of St. Augustine’s history.
The award-winning tour includes a stop inside the Chamber of Horrors at Potter's Wax Museum, where guests get a close-up look at some of the most infamous figures of history. Finally, the tour takes visitors to possibly the eeriest building in town, The Old Jail, where more shady characters await them.
Listed on the Florida and National Registry of Haunted Places, the Old Jail has been the site of countless supernatural occurrences, including apparitions, cold spots and unexplained banging noises. Tour participants are led inside the Old Jail to do some ghost hunting of their own.
