Preview The Most Haunted Locations In Tallahassee

Welcome to Treacherous Tallahassee Ghost Tours

Buildings witness to merciless war harbor the remnants of a time of battles and bloodshed. Journey with Treacherous Tallahassee Ghost Tours to lift the veil on the darkest hours of “Tally’s” past and take a peek at the harrowing hauntings and sinister spirits that keep the locals looking over their shoulders.


Higher Education of Haunts


They say knowledge is power, but at FSU, it might come at a ghastly cost. With a history that stretches back to 1851, Florida State University started as a school for male students aspiring to become priests. Fast-forward almost a hundred years, and by 1947, FSU had become the coeducational and football powerhouse we know and love today. 

But beyond its impressive academic history and buzzing game days, FSU has a horrible past that still haunts Tally to this day. FSU is a hotspot for restless spirits and historical mysteries. Our Tallahassee ghost tour will introduce you to the horrifying details of its foundation and the reasons why the ghosts of its past will never leave.

Explore the dark history of the Gallow Hills, where Tallahassee’s criminals were executed on the very spot where the university stands. Today, it’s said to be haunted by those of the condemned, with students reporting mournful cries echoing through the campus. Terrifying enough, it’s one of the many hauntings that plague the university. 

Get ready for a deep, dark dive into the spooky side of Tallahassee, where the horrors of the past replay on a neverending for poor, unsuspecting witnesses.


What Will I See?

Visit Tallahassee’s Most Haunted Locations, Including:

  • Knott House Museum – Originally built as a residential home in 1843, the Knott House Museum went through a few different owners before it was purchased by William Knott some 85 years later. Today, staff and visitors report an unsettling feeling of being watched, as if the Knotts still reside within. 


  • Ted Bundy’s Rooming House – Home to a notorious serial killer whose cruel and heinous acts shook the entire country more than four decades ago, this unassuming building is now a magnet for ghost hunters and curious thrill seekers. Local legends report the spirits of the victims now watching over the sorority they once belonged to. 


  • The Witch’s Grave – Not for the faint of heart but perfect for those seeking a thrill, the Old City Cemetery is Tallahassee’s historic final resting place for many famous and important individuals who have helped shape the city’s legacy. Local lore says it’s haunted by a “white witch,” forever bound to her final resting place.


Lasting Haunting Legacies


Decorated in stunning Victorian splendor, the Knott House Museum was built as a residential home in 1843 and has seen its fair share of love, loss, and resilience. Venture with Treacherous Tallahassee Ghost Tours to one of the most haunted locations in the city, where you’ll learn about the former owners who still occupy the building, even after death.

Museum staff report sightings of Luella in photographs, with her seemingly changing positions within the frame and even giving a playful wink. More common fascinating and mysterious events include flickering lights, mysteriously closed doors, and an overall feeling of being watched. 

Despite its haunted reputation, the Knott House Museum remains a symbol of Tallahassee’s rich history and cultural heritage. It continues to attract thrill seekers and tourists looking to explore the city’s intriguing, eerie past. Become one of them tonight on our Tallahassee ghost tour. 


The Southern Hospitality of Serial Killers


In a city renowned for its picturesque oak-lined streets and serene parks, one would never imagine that a notorious serial killer could find refuge in Tallahassee. This would change in 1978 when Ted Bundy was arrested in Tallahassee after the gruesome murder of two young female students of Florida State University. 

For history buffs and true crime lovers, Treacherous Tallahassee Ghost Tours offers a hauntingly good tour of the rooming house Ted Bundy once called home. It’s where he schemed and plotted his evil plans and devised sneaky tricks to evade arrest while committing a string of brutal murders across the country. 

Today, Ted Bundy’s rooming house has become a popular destination for those interested in the city’s darker history and the backstory behind one of the most vicious serial killers of the 20th century. Locals report that the spirits of the two young women murdered in cold blood by Bundy continue to haunt the house to this day, keeping a watchful eye over the vulnerable. 


Why is Tallahassee so Haunted?


Sacred Haunted Homelands


Built on the ancestral home of the Fort Walton people, Velda Mound was a sacred site that held deep cultural significance for the Apalachee’s ancestors. However, the arrival of Spanish missionaries and hostile soldiers in the mid-1500s left them with no choice but to leave the land they loved so much.

The death and destruction that followed destroyed the iconic mound and left an everlasting stain in their wake. It seems as though the restless spirits of those wronged still wander the park, their sorrow and anger echoing through the park.

The invasion, deaths, and relentless exploitation are believed to have left restless energy at Velda Mound, with visitors reporting a sense of unease and unexplained activity. Hear their tragic tales and more on a spine-chilling Tallahassee ghost tour.


From Caring Touch to Cruel Clutch 


Though many of Tallahassee’s older buildings still stand, some have been purposely torn down—all for good measure. One such building, however, holds so much turmoil that though the walls may be gone, the heavy energy left behind remains. 

What started as a hospital for kids dealing with mental and physical challenges became a place of horror, where patients suffered and endured the worst treatments from poorly trained and unqualified staff. It’s said that electro-shock therapy, solitary confinement, and neglect were commonplace.

Uncover the darkness experienced within its walls after the hospital was abandoned. Reports include sightings of shadow people and the disembodied sounds of children screaming in agony, and the encounters only get more terrifying. Discover them all with Treacherous Tallahassee Ghost Tours.


What’s so Special About the Tallahassee Ghosts Tour?


See A Different Side of the Cap City


You’ve soaked up the sun on the beaches, maybe even glimpsed an alligator in the Everglades. But now you’re craving a unique and thrilling experience beyond the usual Florida sunshine and sandy shores. Treacherous Tallahassee Ghost Tours offers a hauntingly good time through the city’s historic core and legendary landmarks shrouded in mystery and infested with spirits. 

Venture with us through the sordid streets of Tallahassee, where you’ll learn about Calvin Phillips, a renowned architect famous for designing and building the city’s iconic Old Clock Tower. After Phillips’ death, the clock mysteriously stopped, and the entire structure vanished in the 1980s. Today, a shopping center stands where the tower once loomed, leaving only unanswered questions about its purpose, the clock’s silence, and Phillips’ intentions.


A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity to Unveil The Witch’s Grave


Bessie’s life and death remain shrouded in mystery, one that continues to fuel speculation and excitement among history buffs and curious ghost hunters like you. Nicknamed the “white witch,” some believe she practiced good magic and cast a love spell on her husband, who built her fancy grave as a final act of love. 

Today, visitors looking to connect with the spirit world leave offerings at her grave, hoping to appease the “double dead witch” and perhaps secure her magic. Was she a misunderstood herbalist or a practitioner of the dark arts, wielding forbidden knowledge? There’s only one way to find out! 


Be a Part of a Growing Ghostly Community


Tallahassee may be known for its vibrant student life, but a whole other community lurks in the shadows, waiting for those who crave the adrenaline rush of exploring the unknown.  

Join our community of thrill-seekers as we stroll the haunted streets of Tallahassee and uncover the city’s dark secrets and the restless spirits said to roam its hallowed grounds. From tales of brutal violence to tragedies that claimed many lives and horrific human cruelty that reminds everyone of man’s inhumanity to man, our Tallahassee ghost tour will show you the other side of the city that has not been revealed before.
