Tour Preview: Where You’ll Go

Porter Mansion

Built in 1839, this grand dame of Key West architecture boasts not just balconies and beautiful woodwork but also a resident ghost from its storied past. Local lore says Dr. Porter, who lived his entire life within the mansion’s walls and even passed away in the same room he was born in, still haunts the halls, keeping an eye on his beloved building from the afterlife.

La Concha Hotel

La Concha Hotel may have been the height of opulent luxury in old downtown Key West back in the days, but even its grandeur and charm couldn’t prevent a series of tragic falls from its iconic rooftop perch, leaving a trail of ghostly whispers in its halls. Guests and staff alike report encounters with the spirits of those unfortunate souls, eternally roaming the hotel in search of peace and comfort.

Casa Antigua

The unassuming Casa Antigua, once a “fireproof” hotel built with Civil War-era bricks, may have changed hands many times, but it couldn’t escape its haunted reputation. Once home to the famous Ernest Hemingway, one of the most celebrated authors of the 20th century, whose ghost continues to lurk around the place that made him fall in love with Key West, the

The Hauntings of Key West

Key West’s haunted history dates back to its days as a bustling port city, where dreams were met with harsh realities and fortunes were made and lost with changing tides. For an island that’s built on bones, Key West’s spooky legacy began right when Ponco De Leon landed in 1513, amidst scattered human bones likely from a brutal conflict between mainland tribes and island natives, leaving a grim future for future settlers.

Key West boasts about its status as the southernmost point in the continental U.S. While this is just a fun fact for most, it also plays a significant role in why the island is so spiritually charged. Port cities are notoriously haunted due to their long histories and volume of human traffic—and human suffering—they’ve seen. But Key West is special: it is completely surrounded by saltwater, which both energizes the spirits and creates a barrier they can’t easily cross.

It might seem like a perfect place to vacation today, but back in the day, survival was tough in paradise, and fun in the sun came with a price. Hurricanes, fires, and tropical diseases were constant threats, and the waters teemed with slave ships and notorious pirates hellbent on causing chaos and trouble. Those unfortunate to be caught often faced swift justice at the hanging tree. The wrecking business later introduced even more spiritual energy as salvagers brought ashore ill-gotten gains that carried their spectral attachments from faraway lands.
