Robert the doll was gifted to a little boy named Gene by the family's servant in their Key West house in the 1890s.\nAfter years of wreaking literal and figurative havoc on the boy’s life, Robert was eventually given away where he now lives at the East Martello Fort where you can actually visit him. It's speculated that the servant cursed the toy with voodoo to get back at her bosses for mistreating her.\nYou can also see Robert for yourself on Ghost’s and Gravestone’s Key West tour.\nView this post on Instagram A mischievous doll, a lady in blue and a paranormal guardian... those are just a few of they apparitions you'll meet along our tour 👻 #ghostsandgravestones A post shared by Ghosts & Gravestones (@ghostsandgravestones) on Jul 30, 2019 at 1:40pm PDT\nThe Old Jail\nBuilt in 1891, the Old Jail in St. Augustine has held many a dangerous criminal over the years; while it’s now a tourist attraction, many believe the spirits of the inmates still reside there.\nYou’ll see crime weapons, view the cells, and hear stories of jail hangings.

Starting out as Key West’s only morgue, it’s housed bodies, had some found lying under the floorboards during constructions, witnessed murders, and is built around an actual hanging tree that saw the deaths of several pirates and one woman.\nToday, dollar bills and bras hang from its rafters, and you can actually go there, grab a cold one, and listen to spooky stories of its past.\nView this post on Instagram Found the RADDEST bar of all time. This Key West Bar Is an Ex-Morgue With Bodies Still Buried in It. Not only was the building used as Key West’s first morgue, it was also the location of the infamous “Hanging Tree,” which was responsible for hanging 16 pirates and one woman who had stabbed her husband and two children to death. #keywest #keywestlife #capttonyssaloon A post shared by Trevor Reid (@trevreiddesign) on Jul 12, 2017 at 9:00am PDT\nLa Concha Hotel\nDubbed Key West’s most historic and tallest building at six stories high, La Concha is rumored to have witnessed 13 people jump from the roof to commit suicide over the years.\nOne story claims a man was drinking a glass of chardonnay before he leaped, and that drinking a glass of wine near that spot can trigger an appearance of his ghost today.\nView this post on Instagram Merry Christmas from our family to yours! #laconchakw #keywest A post shared by La Concha Hotel and Spa (@laconchakw) on Dec 25, 2019 at 9:08am PST\nIf you’re still not sufficiently spooked, you can pay a visit to Orlando’s year-round Halloween bar or experience what it's like to be buried alive at a year-round haunted house while you wait for October to roll around.
