Overview

Highlights

  • See the Old Jail, one of just a few prisons of its kind still standing, and take a tour with the costumed guide

  • See where executions took place in the gallows, and walk through the cells!

Description

The Old Jail in St. Augustine still has a harrowing air about it, which is to be expected, seeing as it hasn't really changed much in a whole century! Join your guide in full costume for a tour into the dark past of prison life, where the wronged and falsely accused were made to suffer for over 60 years.

Get ready for goosebumps in a chillier part of the sunshine state! The Old Jail is one of just a few prisons of its kind still standing - and your guide can't wait to terrify and intrigue you with tales of its past.

See where men and women were executed in the gallows, and where the sheriff lived with his wife and family (they must have had strong stomachs!). Meet Sheriff Joe Perry himself, a strict warden who kept prisoners in line, and see weapons and artifacts.

Built in 1891 by Henry Flagler, the Old Jail in St. Augustine has been restored and renovated over the years. But it doesn't take much imagination to picture being back in the 19th century.

We dare you to try and escape.
