Haunted Monticello, Florida, Haunted America

Discover the paranormal past of this panhandle town . . . Photos included!

Monticello might sometimes seem like a quiet Florida panhandle town, but its history tells of a ghostly past stretching back to the early nineteenth century. Discover the stories behind the old blacksmith’s forge on Jefferson Street—where the chilling sounds of metal striking metal still ring out across the town—and the Hanging Tree, forever haunted by the ghosts of executed outlaws and lost Confederate soldiers.

The Monticello Historical district contains over forty buildings dating back to the nineteenth century, and it is said that one out of every three buildings are haunted. Join local haunted tour guide Betty Davis and Big Bend Ghost Trackers as they reveal the amazing history of Monticello’s spookiest spots.
