Drink up!

The Porter Mansion – and a mysterious stack of dimes
Dr. Joseph Yates Porter was the first Public Health officer of Florida, a Conch, born and bred, he spent his career studying Yellow Fever that terrorized the island every summer. Especially dangerous for children, Dr. Porter treated dozens of children many of whom never recovered. The tragic loss of those children’s young lives deeply affected Dr. Porter. He would leave dimes on the eyes of the deceased children he had failed to save.
He passed away peacefully, but disappointed, in the bedroom where he was born. He did however help discover that mosquitos spread the disease, but he did not find a cure.
To this day, mysterious stacks of dimes appear throughout the house, and chamber music fades in and out of the thick summer nights, with no obvious source. Join us on a tour to hear more about Dr. Porters’ haunting of this Key West landmark.
The Key West connection with Hemingway and Sloppy Joe’s.
Stranded here in Key West for a night while waiting for an errant rental car, Hemingway ended up staying in Key West for over two years, finishing off A Farewell To Arms. His fingerprints are all over the city.
Hemingway often drank in Sloppy Joe’s bar, once a morgue, a telegraph house and then a speakeasy. The bar has a reputation as big as Papa Hemingway’s. It is also riddled with ghosts, right outside the bar is a tall and old tree. Over 75 criminals and pirates took their last breath on this hangman’s killing ground.
Take the Southernmost Ghosts tour and hear the tales of some of the people who lost their lives here but still hang around, including the deranged ‘lady in blue’.
