Ghost Tours of St. Augustine

www.ghosttoursofstaugustine.com

St. Augustine is a city in St. Johns County, Florida, in the United States. It is the oldest continuously occupied European-established city in the continental United States. St. Augustine lies in a region of Florida known as The First Coast, which extends from Amelia Island in the north, south to Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Palm Coast. There are many places that are haunted here in St Augustine, Florida. I feel that I have personally experienced the most paranormal activity in the following.

Some of the most noted and haunted buildings in the district are located on the Plaza de la Constitución, the colonial community's focal point. Here are found the Government House (governor's residence, built 1713), Trinity Episcopal Church (1825), and the Basilica Cathedral of St. Augustine which incorporates the 1797 parish church and is one of the oldest Catholic religious buildings in the U.S.


1. The Castillo de San Marcos "The Fort"

A monument not only of stone and mortar but of human determination and endurance, the Castillo de San Marcos symbolizes the clash between cultures which ultimately resulted in our uniquely unified nation. The Castillo de San Marcos is a Spanish built fort located in the city of St. Augustine, Florida. It was known as Fort Marion from 1821 until 1942, and Fort St. Mark from 1763 until 1784 while under British control.

The city of St. Augustine was founded in 1565. Over the next one hundred years, the city was defended by nine wooden forts. Following the 1668 attack of the English pirate Robert Searle, it was decided by the Queen Regent of Spain, Mariana, that a masonry fortification be constructed to protect the city. In October 1672 construction began on the fort that would become the Castillo de San Marcos.

In 1900, the fort was taken off of the active duty rolls after 205 years of service, under five different flags. In 1924, the fort was designated a National Monument and in 1933 it was transferred to the National Park Service from the War Department. In 1942, in honor of its Spanish heritage the name of the fort was changed back to the Castillo de San Marcos. As an historic property of the National Park Service, the National Monument was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966. The fort is co-managed with Fort Matanzas National Monument. In 1975, the Castillo was designated an Historic Civil Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

In January, 1861, Florida seceded from the United States in the opening months of the American Civil War. Union troops had withdrawn from the fort, leaving only one man behind as caretaker of the fort. In January 1861, Confederate troops marched on the fort. The Union soldier manning the fort refused to surrender it unless he was given a receipt for it from the Confederacy. He was given the receipt and the fort was taken by the Confederacy without a shot. Most of the artillery in the fort was then sent to other forts, leaving the fort nearly defenseless.

Since being transferred to the Park Service, the Castillo has been a tourist attraction occupying 2.5 acres (101,000 m²) in downtown St. Augustine.

2. The Tolomato Catholic Cemetery

The Tolomato cemetery was started during the British period as a burial place for Menorcians. Later it became a general Catholic cemetery. Many famous St. Augustine residents were buried there including Father Camps, Father Verela, Bishop Jean Verot, and General Jorge Biassou. The site was the location of Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe de Tolomato, a church, for the mission of the Tolomato Indians from Georgia. Before the British arrived it was used by German immigrants for a church.

Two hundred years ago Doña Rita Morales died and was buried in the cemetery on the outskirts of St. Augustine, then the capital of the Spanish colony of East Florida. She was of some prominence, her husband was Commandant of the Cuban regiment garrisoned in Castillo de San Marcos, but her 14-year old grandson only knew that his grandmother, his “second mother” as he called her, was the second mother that death had taken from him in his young life.

In 1802, to identify the cemetery as Catholic in this 237-year old Catholic city, would be redundant. It was, and still is, called Tolomato, the original name given to the Native American village located on that site long before Pedro Menendez claimed the nearby land for God and country in 1565. Over the next half century, Tolomato Cemetery would no longer be on the outskirts of the city. Without moving, it was embraced by St. Augustine’s expanding boundaries. By this time, the city also had wrapped its arms around the saintly man the 14-year old grief-stricken boy had become – Father Félix Varela. A living legend to his Cuban compatriots, this amazingly accomplished, yet unpretentious priest, forced to live in exile, had come back to St. Augustine, now part of the United States, to die and be buried in Tolomato Cemetery beside Doña Rita Morales.

3. The Huguenot Cemetery

The Huguenot Cemetery was established soon after Florida became a U. S. territory. The cemetery, located just outside St. Augustine's north gate, was first used for the interment of victims of the 1821 yellow fever epidemic and then for the burial of members of city's Protestant population. The cemetery property was acquired by the Rev. Thomas Alexander and then sold to the Presbyterian Church in 1832. By the late 19th century, over-crowding of graves, and the resulting concerns for sanitation and public health, required that the small public and religious burying grounds in St. Augustine be closed. New cemeteries, such as San Lorenzo and Evergreen, were subsequently opened to parishioners and the public.

This real Florida haunted cemetery formerly was the Potters field, where ex-communicants and military criminals were buried; the dates on the tombs are not very ancient, 1821 being the oldest, but very many of the graves bear no inscription; the nature of the place in its earliest days would not lead to a perpetuation of the memory of those interred there; the spot is worth inspection.

The Huguenot Cemetery is significant because it was the first cemetery in St. Augustine dedicated for Anglo-American civilians. The burial traditions and funerary materials expressed at Huguenot, compared with the nearby Tolomato Cemetery (established by the Catholic Church in 1777), demonstrate both the differences and commonalties in funerary practices and religious attitudes of two distinct groups residing in 19th century St. Augustine. The gravemarkers at Huguenot Cemetery display a range of funerary art popular in the 19th century, including false box tombs with inscribed ledgers and finely carved headstones by highly skilled stone carvers in vogue during the 1820s-40s, and the more elaborate monuments that were favored during the Victorian period. The work of several important stone carvers in the southeastern United States has been identified at the cemetery, including Thomas Walker and members of the White family who had shops in Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia.

Lee N. Pallas's Top Ten Haunted Places in St. Augustine, Florida

The Concerns: The Presbyterian Church has owned the Huguenot Cemetery since 1832. After the cemetery was closed to burials in 1884, the church continued maintenance of the grounds, and some efforts of restoration were made in 1946 and again in 1951. However, it eventually became necessary to keep the entrance gates locked and restrict visitation to the site. While the burial site was relatively secure from vandalism and theft, natural weathering and deterioration of the markers continued.

In 1989 the Cemetery Restoration Committee of Memorial Presbyterian Church was formed. It initiated a program to document the Huguenot Cemetery's gravemarkers and research genealogical information about those who are buried there. In 1990, participants in the Preservation Institute: Caribbean made measured drawings of the more significant gravestones and box tombs at the cemetery. In 1991-92 the Restoration Committee was successful in obtaining a survey & planning grant from the Bureau of Historic Preservation, Division of Historical Resources to develop a master preservation plan for the cemetery. The Plan's recommendations were adopted by the Committee and, as funds could be raised, work began on those funerary markers determined to have a high priority for restoration.

4. Saint George Street

The practice of giving every street its own name is relatively recent. For most of the colonial period, the thoroughfares of St. Augustine were known simply as "the street of the Hospital", or "the street that goes to the barracks". During t he first Spanish Period (1565-1763) the present St. George Street was known as "the street of the governor", or "the street that goes to the land gate". It was not until the British came (1763) that it was named St. George in honor of King George III." [S t. Augustine and the Beaches", May-June 1995, Events magazine, The St. Augustine Record, St. Augustine

Bisecting the Plaza south and north is St. George Street, and the Old City Gates, the main street of the colonial city. Here one can find many other historic buildings such as De Mesa-Sanchez House (43 St. George Street), the Arrivas House (44 St. George), and the Avero House, now the St. Photios Greek Shrine (37 St. George).

In the seventeenth and early eighteenth century, St. George Street was known as San Patricio Street. 1702 - Thirty-one houses were destroyed by the Spanish commander as a strategy to control the Raid of 1702. Many of these houses were in the northern portion of St. George Street. Before leaving, the English burned the rest of the town destroying 118 additional structures.

5. Treasury Street

Treasury Street is one of the curiosities of the town commencing at Bay street it is so very narrow that two people can shake hands across it; proceeding westward it gradually widens until where it runs into Cordova street it is a respectable width.

TREASURY STREET, ST. AUGUSTINE, FLA.- 45. 7 FEET WIDE, NARROWEST STREET IN THE U.S.A.

Haunted buildings line the street resting on the remains of a St Augustine long since dead. Some saya man real ghostly encounters happen here at night.


6. Flagler College " The Ponce de Leon hotel

Flagler College, often abbreviated as Flagler, is a private four-year liberal arts college in St. Augustine, Florida, USA.

Mr. H. M. Flagler decided to build a winter hotel in St. Augustine; in 1885 the Ponce de Leon was commenced, it was completed in 1887. This magnificent pile is so well known, its broad columned loggias, superb decorations and tasteful furnishings, are of such world-wide reputation, that no further description is necessary; and, indeed, the same remark applies to Mr. Flagler's other hotels, the Alcazar and the Cordova, the former of which was built subsequently, while the latter was purchased from Mr. F. W. Smith. These three splendid structures, with their gardens of palm and other tropical trees and shrubs, their fountains and broad asphalt pavements, tile roofs and Moorish architecture, form a "coup d'œil" which must be see to be appreciated, as must the luxuriousness and comfort of their interiors. The Cordova building has received some alterations since it was built, the lower story having been converted into large roomy stores with modern plate glass fronts.

The college has been named in recent years by US News & World Report as one of the southeast region's best comprehensive liberal arts colleges , and is included on its list of "America's Best Colleges.

The school is located on 19 acres, the centerpiece of which is the Ponce de Leon Hall, built in 1888 as a luxury hotel. The architects were John Carrere and Thomas Hastings, working for Henry Morrison Flagler, the industrialist, oil magnate and railroad pioneer. It is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.


7. The Lightner Museum " The Alkazar Hotel"

In 1883, Henry Flagler (Oil Tycoon) came to the city. He was so impressed that he invested in St. Augustine's restoration and development of the city as a winter resort. Flagler contributed some of the cities grandest architecture, such as the Alcazar hotel (now the Lightner Museum), the Cordova, and the Ponce de Leon (now Flagler College).

Housed in the former Hotel Alczar, built in 1888 by Henry Flagler, relics of America's Gilded Age are elegantly exhibited on the museum's three floors. You will marvel in the elegance of the newly restored ballroom. And it's said to be very haunted!


8. The Plaza de Constionial " The Plaza"

The real haunted heart of St. Augustine retains the distinctive plan of a 16th century Spanish Colonial walled town, much of which has been preserved or restored. The numerous remaining colonial buildings circling the Plaza in the historic district present an impressive array of architecture from 1703 to 1898. The Oldest House, located three blocks south of the Plaza at 14 St. Francis Street, is another traditional Spanish Colonial residence built circa 1706 and is the oldest surviving residence in the city's history. This area south of the Plaza is the oldest part of St. Augustine, and there are several other original structures along narrow St. Francis, St. George, Aviles, and Marine Streets. Many are private residences, but some are open to the public.

The Spanish Monument in the Plaza was erected, as the plate on it says, in commemoration of the adoption of the Spanish Constitution in 1812, and is the only memorial of that event left, all the rest having been destroyed on the downfall of the Constitution.

Some of the most noted haunted buildings in the district are located on the Plaza de la Constitución, the colonial community's focal point. Here are found the Government House (governor's residence, built 1713), Trinity Episcopal Church (1825), and the Basilica Cathedral of St. Augustine which incorporates the 1797 parish church and is one of the oldest Catholic religious buildings in the U.S.

9. The City Gates

Many call them "The portal through time" or " the door way to the other side". Many haunted ghost photos happen here and those that sensitive to ghosts and the paranormal often say they feel like someone unseen has touched them. Some say it is a area with a high vortex. or just a spot where the dead of St Augustine go to crossover to the other side.

10. The Saint Augustine Light House

A Spanish watchtower, built in the late 1500's was the predecessor of the present St. Augustine Lighthouse. St Augustine is the site of the oldest aid to navigation in North America. The original watchtower became Florida's first lighthouse in 1824. However, by 1870, the tower was threatened by shoreline erosion and construction began on the current lighthouse. The new tower was completed in 1874. The old tower succumbed to the sea during a storm in 1880.

The Old Lighthouse, built by the Spanish and added to by the British, was washed away by the sea in June 1880; the debris still strew the beach.

The New Lighthouse, built by the government, is one of the finest on the coast, from its summit a grand panorama of sea and land, of river and foliage, and of the town with its grey old fort and its modern towers and domes delights the eye and repays the visitor for the toilsome ascent. The view over the government reservation, the golf links of St. Augustine, from the Palmetto Hotel, including as it does the gates and fort, with the river and ocean in the distance, and the old, so called, Huguenot Cemetery with its somber cedar foliage in the foreground is very fine.

Constructed of Alabama brick and Philadelphia iron, the lighthouse is St. Augustine's oldest surviving brick structure. In 1876, a brick light keeper's house was added to the site. Light keepers' and their assistants lived and worked there until the tower was automated in 1955.

The St. Augustine Lighthouse rises 165 feet above sea level and contains 219 steps. At the top, a first order Fresnel lens serves the beacon. The St. Augustine lens consists of 370 hand-cut glass prisms arranged in a beehive shape towering twelve feet tall and six feet in diameter.

In 1980, the Junior Service League of St. Augustine, Inc. began a fifteen-year campaign to restore the keeperís house that was destroyed by fire in 1970 and the tower. The house was opened to the public as a museum in 1988. In 1993, the tower was also opened to visitors on a daily basis.

In July 2002 the U.S. Coast Guard, through the General Services Administration, transferred the deed for the tower to the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum, Inc. through the pilot program of the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000. In addition, the Coast Guard turned over the first order Fresnel lens to the museum.

In 1807, recognizing need to chart the coastal waters of this country President Thomas Jefferson compelled Congress to create the Survey of the Coast. Known today as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Survey of the Coast charted then nation’s ports and waterways, researched physical characteristics of the ocean bottom and explored many of the world’s oceans.

In recognition of this landmark 200th anniversary, NOAA and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) have created the exhibit, “From Sea to Shining Sea: 200 years of Charting America’s Coasts,” which opens June 21 at the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum and 199 other venues nationwide.

 

The light house was featured on the third season of TAPS, Sci-fi's Ghost hunters revealing some startling real ghost video footage.

Prior to the construction of what is known as the Bridge of Lions, an old wooden toll bridge built in 1895, served as the only access to Anastasia Island from downtown St. Augustine. After major renovations in 1904, the wood bridge accommodated an electric trolley line. Due to the increase in automobile traffic and a desire to remove an "eyesore", work began in 1925 to build a modern, high-quality bridge that would complement the City.

The present Bridge of Lions opened to traffic in 1927 and connects the historic downtown business district with Anastasia Island. The bascule drawbridge opens to allow the passage of commercial and recreational boats. In 1982, the Bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Oldest House
The González-Alvarez House is the oldest surviving Spanish Colonial dwelling in Florida. The site has been occupied since the 1600s and the present house dates to the early 1700s. 

Also visit Old Fort Matanzas stands at the inlet of the same name; the date of its building is 1741; it is a pleasant sail of about eighteen miles from St. Augustine. At Matanzas, too, is a shell mound which covers some thirty acres of ground and which is well worthy of a visit. The defense of St. Augustine in 1763, as described by John Bartram in his work on Florida, were:—a line of earthworks surmounted by several rows of Spanish bayonets and a broad moat ran from the fort to the San Sebastian. On this line were placed the gates at the end of St. George street, a battery on the San Sebastian and two intermediate batteries, one of which was situated at the end of the present Cordova Street, and this was entirely removed in making the entrance to the San Marco Hotel; the remains of the other two are still extant. A line of the same earthwork and moat ran southerly where Cordova street now runs to a point nearly opposite the Post Cemetery, thence it ran east and connected with the Matanzas; of this no trace remains. A battery was located on either side of the mouth of the Maria Sanchez Creek and both are now plainly visible. Several batteries were placed at the Indian crossings of the San Sebastian; one, a little south of Ferry street, can still be traced. An outer line of the same nature as that described ran from the San Sebastian River to the Indian village of Topiqui, where is the site of the old Catholic Cemetery in the North City, seven minutes' walk from the gates; here are the ruins of the old chapel, which was built on the foundations of the ancient Indian church described by John Bartram as having a handsome tower. Another line constructed in the same manner as the inner ones ran from the Sebastian, at the place where the "Horn Bridge" crosses the river, to Fort Moosa. Fort Moosa was a coquina fort having four bastions and a moat. It was built on the Moosa (now called Moses) creek, at a spot about three quarters of a mile east of the Cremator and about two miles from St. Augustine. This historic spot is marked by coquina foundations, but the walls and watch tower are leveled and the well is filled up. Such, together with the fort, is a brief sketch of the defenses which kept at bay Palmer, Oglethorpe and McIntosh, and for the want of which the inhabitants of St. Augustine had to leave their homes and take refuge in the fort in 1702 when col. Daniels marched against the place and when Governor Moore burnt it. The old ruins are worth visiting, recalling, as they do, the past struggles between our forefathers and the Spaniards.

The Fort is accessible only by guided boat tours. Hiking trails are available on the barrier island.
