Friendly Ghosts Like Fernandina Beach
Polly the Ghost Tour Trolley
Ghost tours and stories of ghosts are abundant in many older towns and cities, especially in old homes and buildings. Fernandina Beach has its share of stories and several ways for guests to experience the phenomenon. One way pictured at left is Polly the Trolley which takes visitors on a motorized tour of the old homes with ghost stories and adds a touch of history. They depart at 7:30 and 8:30 pm Friday and Saturday. Another option is the Museum of History walking ghost tour that runs each Friday evening at 6 pm. They begin at the Episcopal Church and wind through the historic district, stopping in front of homes that have experienced the unusal and unexplained. Another option is the Amelia Island Ghost Tours run by Daine Blanton. These tours operate Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 pm and have been happening for 10 years. Again these are walking tours through all of the old homes with ghost experiences as well as the local cemetery. She has photos she has captured on tours showing orbs, angels and strange occurances.

Diane awaits visitors for Ghost Touring
All of the ghosts on the Island appear to be friendly, more like Casper. Some are playful and mischievious but none I have heard of appear scary or do anything bad. We have had a few interesting experiences at the Williams House that we share with interested guests, but the vast majority of visitors never experience anything other than relaxing nights, great breakfasts and lots of social interaction. If you are interested, there are plenty of options in the local area to fulfill all of your paranormal leanings and most are a fun and thought provoking experience.
