Old Clay County Jail

One of the oldest jails in Florida sits in the heart of historic Green Coves Springs, Florida. Huge oak trees covered with Spanish moss surround the old jail. The white stucco walls and tin roof harkens back to a bygone era. It may look peaceful from the outside but what’s inside may surprise the unwary. You see, the old jail is haunted. 


First built in 1894 the old jail was in service till 1972. During that time at least five documented executions have occurred on the front steps of the jail. Death was by hanging.

The jail housed the insane, juveniles, men and women. At least one sheriff was assassinated and his body was dragged into the jail, where it lay bleeding on the floor. One deranged inmate slit his own throat. Another man stabbed himself to death on the lawn of the courthouse/jail complex. 


We investigated this location on January 29, 2016. During our investigation we used strong provocation in order to stir up the spirits of the criminals that still reside there. We also used trigger objects such as a noose, and money. We received many intelligent responses. Most of the responses was from the spirit of a unknown woman . We were also able to capture a shadow figure that appears, moves through the spiritbox, and hits an investigator. Also we capture an amazing stobing orb.
