Dare to experience a historical walking ghost tour in Historic Downtown Sanford, Florida!
During our ghost tours, prepare to be regaled with tales of old and new concerning ghostly experiences in the downtown area, culminating with a walk to an actual haunted building! You will be presented with an overview of ghostly activities by an expert guide as you walk the streets learning historical stories gathered from the people who live in Sanford themselves. Incorporated in 1877, the stories of Sanford’s past residents and those still lurking around are plentiful. Please keep in mind that we are NOT ghost hunting!
Sanford Ghost Tours started in 2011 by Gary Holmes as he uncovered several stories from the local residents of ghostly encounters. These stories were not only fun but painted a picture of some of our previous residences. He quickly learned all he could about the previous residence and the many hauntings in the historic downtown buildings. And now, you too can enjoy some history and hauntings here in the Historic Downtown Sanford area.
