Everyone’s favorite Florida tour manager, Jamie Roush of GhoST Augustine Tours, released her new book “Historic Haunts Florida” over the holiday season in December 2011. The book covers many historic and haunted sites in Florida and will slip easily into your travel bag as you head south to the balmy Florida coast!
Jamie was born in St. Petersburg, Florida. After experiencing several unexplained encounters at historic locations as a child, she developed a passion for history and the paranormal. Jamie has studied Parapsychology under the expertise of Loyd Auerbach. She has appeared on Travel Channel’s TV show “Most Terrifying Places in America,” and featured in many newspaper articles. She is the Manager of GhoST Augustine Tours—one of the most popular ghost tours in the city of St. Augustine, Florida.
“Historic Haunts Florida” contains over 40 chilling stories of historic and haunted places in Florida cities such as Pensacola, Amelia Island, St, Augustine, Ocala, Miami, Orlando, Key West, and much more. You will visit old light houses, forts, restaurants, jails, plantations, museums, hotels, and other historic landmarks. Learn about ghostly pirates, civil war spirits and the mysterious Robert the Doll.
A personal favorite was the tales of the Haunted Hearses employed by GhoST Augustine Tours. For many years “Frankie” and “Ms Tariqa” (all hearses have names) carried bodies of the dearly departed to their final resting place. Now they tour the streets of St. Augustine carrying eager ghost hunters seeking the unknown. Yes, GhoST Augustine Tours has two haunted hearses. You will learn the chilling tale of the old hearse driver who still comes along for the ride as the hearse tour visits the haunted sites of St. Augustine.
This collection of some of Florida’s most haunted and historic sites is a quick read and offers lots of black and white photos along with the chilling tales. Learn about the history and mystery of Sunshine State when the sun goes down and opens up to the darkness of the spirit world.
