Old Jail After Dark

Prepare yourself for a spine tingling night you’ll never forget at The Old Jail After Dark. This 45-minute chilling experience allows visitors to participate in an actual paranormal investigation of St. Augustine’s Old Jail. Recognized as one of the most haunted buildings in the country, the Old Jail is shrouded in mystery and lore. The historic building housed prisoners from 1891 to 1953 when it was closed due to its deplorable conditions and the inflicted cruelty on its residents. Eight documented hangings were carried out on this site and many other deaths that can only be described as unnatural. Perhaps these are why many believe the Old Jail is an epicenter for paranormal activity and why it has become a popular destination for ghost hunters everywhere.
