Do you want to participate in a real paranormal investigation at one of the most haunted locations in Florida? Join us on any Friday or Saturday night as we conduct a Ghost Hunt at the authentic Old Jail of St. Augustine, Florida. The Old Jail is listed on the Florida and National Registry of Haunted Places, and has been featured on numerous TV shows, including Ghost Hunters and Paranormal Seekers.Built in 1891, this St. Augustine landmark was once home to the County's most vicious and violent criminals, the worst of whom were hanged at the gallows on the property. Now a museum, guests can come and learn of its past, its infamous residents, and its most famous Sheriff, Joe Perry, all during the comfort of daylight hours. But in the quiet of the night, the most daring of guests can join us on one of our Ghost Hunts inside this haunted building, where paranormal phenomena, from full-bodied apparitions to disembodied voices, have been seen and recorded.

This jail is interesting both from the paranormal standpoint and historical standpoint. You will be shocked to hear how prisoners were treated. Also, as a paranormal investigator who has been in this jail solo, I can attest to the fact it is definitely haunted. Nonetheless,...More

We took grandkids ages 12 and 8. Not too scary for little one but very fun and entertaining, our inmate tour guide was great!! He really made the tour. Would recommend to anybody. The emphasis wasn't really on paranormal but more on the historical
