Ghost Tour of Ft. Pierce, FL

Fort Pierce Ghost Tour

      Happy Halloween!  It's the annual Ft. Pierce Ghost Tour!  There are two tours, one North Ft. Pierce, and the other South.  Offthetrails chose the North Tour.  It started at the Old Court House, moved to the railroad tracks where we heard a ghost story, and then made several stops throughout downtown.   Along the way, we heard ghost stories and met some of the city's most famous former residents.  Bean Backus and the deputies involved with the capture of the infamous Ashley Gang were there with their stories.  Some city landmarks were stops.   It was a very interesting tour that combined ghostly tales with history and the culture of old Ft. Pierce.  The tour was sponsored by Main Street Fort Pierce.   It lasted nearly 2 hours, and was only $5 a person.  Some families brought along children.  We enjoyed it and hope to return to take the South Tour next year!
