Haunted Locations

The Old section of Key West, an island formerly known as the Isle of Bones, possesses everything from a cemetery that released its dead from the coastal sand dunes during the 1846 hurricane to the original Elvira, a 19 year old killed by her mortician husband and whose tombstone remains to this day inside of Captain Tony's Saloon (the original location of the city morgue). Key West is also home to the infamous three foot tall voodoo doll stuffed with straw named "Robert the Doll" and the story of "Undying Love" surrounding Count Carl von Cosel who lived with the corpse of his beloved... for seven year! Although these are some of the scarier stories coming out of Key West, it is also home to many haunted hotels, restaurants, and bars which add to the local flavor. The local population of Key West embrace their ghostly residents like any other inhabitant living on this tropical island.
The island's colorful characters, saltwater fishing, fresh seafood, and its laid-back lifestyle has made Key West a popular vacation destination for people of all ages and one of the top tourist destinations in this country. This southernmost city in the United States with a rich and vibrant history is located just 150 miles south of Miami, Florida and 90 miles north of Havana, Cuba. A virtual 2 mile by 4 mile tropical island paradise which harbors its own little secrets and comes complete with a very sordid past. The tales of island pirate lore, voodoo curses, and black magic rituals have made Key West notorious for its hauntings and ghost tours where you can learn about these spirits or even stay at a haunted hotel and experience their ghostly presence first hand!
Key West is believed by many to be one of the most haunted locations in the United States where those paranormal enthusiasts can enjoy the nightly ghost hunting tours throughout historic Old Town, and where visitors and restless spirits alike roam about the shadowy streets after dark. The haunted hotels, 19th-century Victorian Mansions, and cemeteries are sure to produce a few orbs, apparitions, and ghostly sightings to the unwitting traveler as you stroll along the narrow alleyways listening to some of the island's most colorful stories and legends. The endless tales of famous writers, pirates, run-runners, and refugees coming from Florida's second oldest city are often creepy and down right frightening. You will hear chilling and tragic accounts of hangings, murder, disease, misfortune and many other bizarre yet true stories which have earned Key West its place on the top ten list of one of the most haunted cities in America.
