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.

Unfortunately we could not visit the jail because there was no parking for four blocks and no one leaving. They let everyone taking tram tours park there and that took all the parking for at least 1.5 hours.

Awesome show put on by the inmate at the old jail. He almost had me convinced that he was a real ghost!

I liked the Ghost Bus ride to the jail and lighthouse. Our tour guide was dressed in period had many ghost stories to tell. The jail was creepy, small and original. A must see.

We did this as part of the ghost tour. The tour was nice to see the sights at night and hear the stories but the jail was great. An ex-convict tells of his experience and it is none to pleasant. Plus his exit is surprising!
