The Old Hamilton County Jail in Jasper, Florida is a place where many inmates faced their final days.  But many believe that several of those former prisoners are still lurking in the shadows trying to gain their freedom.  Featured in several paranormal writings and investigated by professionals and enthusiasts from all over the world, this old jail is one location you will not want to miss!

Built in 1893, the Old Hamilton County Jail housed several inmates during its 91 years of operation.  The executions, murders and suicides that took place in the jail and on the grounds have left a lasting impression that suggests many of the prisoners are still hanging around and eager to communicate with those brave enough to visit.

Full-bodied apparitions, cell doors slamming, lights flickering, shadow figures, ghostly hands grabbing shoulders, chest pressure, disembodied voices and footsteps, bone chilling EVPs (electronic voice phenomena)the Old Hamilton County Jail has provided evidence and experiences for several investigators and never disappoints!

The dead who still reside at the jail have many untold stories.  Many of the people who will walk around the building during the daylight hours are quick to leave if they enter alone at night.  An eerie silence that settles over the old jail slowly becomes a haven of knocking, banging, crying out and clear disembodied voices speaking.

The only true question that remainswill you be brave enough to stick it out or will you turn tail and run?!?!

Location History:

The Old Hamilton County Jail was constructed in 1893 in Jasper, Florida and by the time the last inmate was transferred and the old cells slammed shut forever in 1984, it was the oldest operating jail in the state.  For 91 years, the quaint structure with its looming tower was a purveyor of justice for those in Hamilton County.

The jails benign appearance is a fa├žade that hides the tragedy and despair that the walls witnessed throughout the duration of its operation.  Perhaps that is why the local folklore insists upon the hauntings that draw paranormal investigators from all over the world to validate the tales.

It is a debated fact whether or not hangings took place within the jail but a dangling nooseless rope still protrudes from the ceiling as a pointed reminder that inmates who did face execution by hanging spent their final days at the Old Hamilton County Jail counting down the last minutes of their lives.  Such angst and desperation are bound to leave an imprint upon the brick walls of the structure.

Displayed inside the jail is a notice of execution that appeared in the Tallahassee Democrat in 1916.  Rather than using the prisoners name it refers to him as the murderer of Deputy Raiford Royals and the black man.  Walter Durham had been convicted of the murder and because of the nature of the crime, his death was made into a public affair.  The local people gathered on the lawn of the jail around the gallows that had been constructed and watched as Durham swung to his death.

Executions are not the only deaths that occurred at the Old Hamilton County Jail.  Among the collected stories of past inmates is the reported suicide of a female prisoner in the womens cells.  Perhaps it is her restless spirit that people have seen wandering the cell block in the darkness of night.

And yet, with darkness there is also light.  The Deputy Sheriff and his family resided on site and his wife gave birth to both of their sons inside the building.  The sounds of children laughing and playing is often reported by paranormal investigators that dare to spend the night inside the Old Hamilton County Jail.
