The Huguenot Cemetery in St. Augustine, Florida
The Huguenot Cemetery in St. Augustine, Florida has been deemed by locals and tourists alike as one of the most haunted spots in all of the city! Built near the old city gate, this particular cemetery was created shortly after the establishment of Florida as a part of the United States. There were a number of victims of the epidemic of yellow fever around the year of 1821, and a need to have an area for people to be buried that were not catholic. In the end of the 19th century, this particular cemetery had to be closed because of the over crowding of graves. It is believed that Judge John B. Stickney lurks in the shadows of this haunted graveyard looking for something, even though he has been laid to rest since 1882. If you look closely, you just may catch a glimpse of soldiers, and other apparitions looking out from the grounds towards the old city gate, or even the old fort across the street….
