If you're a fan of the paranormal, you've probably seen every ghost hunter show known to man or maybe even dabbled in a bit of ghost hunting yourself. You'll have a chance to ghost hunt with the stars of the Travel Channel's 'Haunted Towns', the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, at the old Clay County Jail next year.
Built in 1894, the old Clay County jail closed its doors in 1973 after the new jail became the center of attention in Green Cove Springs, Florida. Today, the history of alleged abuse and death lends to legend of hauntings in its halls.
During its operating days, the jail saw at least 5
hangings in the courtyard, which many believe is a direct cause for the lingering paranormal activity experienced here - along with other death and hardship that may have been experienced within its walls.
But is it really haunted? That's the thing about the paranormal, you have to experience it yourself to believe. Others who have been inside had reported hearing disembodied voices clearly on EVP recordings, cell doors banging and moving on their own, and unseen hands grabbing or scratching visitors. Talk about scary.
This experience will let you meet, greet and bump fists with the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, Chris Smith, Brannon Smith, and Mike Goncalves as you hunt for hints of the paranormal in the Clay County Jail: one of the oldest jails in the State of Florida.
But you won't just tour the jail, you'll visit other reportedly haunted locations on in this tour too, including the execution grounds, the History Museum, the old Clay County Courthouse, and the old railroad station.
Not only will you get to meet the stars of 'Haunted Towns', but you'll have plenty of places to experience the paranormal at the Ghost Hunt Weekend event. Whether you're a fan of everything spooky or a skeptic of the supernatural looking to challenge your belief, this is an experience not for the faint of heart that you won't want to miss.
