SOME OF THE HAUNTED SITES YOU’LL SEE ON YOUR AWESOME ADVENTURE
John Sealy wanted to the best for his family so, we decided to build them the largest and most lavish house on the Island. The children play room was in the attic and had a Broadway stage. To this day the children continue to perform for anyone brave enough to witness the stage doors opening and closing by themselves. Magnolia Sealy, the head of the household is seen wandering the halls too shy to speak with visitors.
The Normandy Inn
Only one person ever liked living at the Normandy Inn and that was the man who brought Satanism to the island. One week after construction, a young boy threw himself out of the window… AND LIVED. When asked why he did such a thing, he replied, “Something evil was going to kill me”. Now The Normandy Inn has become a pilgrimage site for those who practice voodoo, black magic, Satanism and witch craft. Many sacrificial rituals have taken place here including… A HUMAN! To this day, it is still used as a portal the hell.
The extremely wealthy eccentric Bettie Brown’s spirit is forever roaming the elegant halls of Ashton Villa. Many have seen Bettie wearing a turquoise dress and carrying a fan during lavish events held at the mansion. Even death can’t keep Betty from being the life of the party…and scare the guests half to death.

What makes a ghost?
The paranormal researchers tell us that ghosts are formed in four ways; sudden death, demonic possession, habitual (they just don't want to leave), or unfinished business. When the 10,000 souls died in the great hurricane of September 8th of 1900, the massive loss seems to have triggered many of the most well known incidences of paranormal activity. It is further speculated that ghosts like to live near water, who knew.
Is there parking?
Yes, there is plenty of free lighted parking on the street.

No. Best to be prepared before the tour starts.
