  • Haunted Trolley Tours

    Jacksonville Haunted Trolley Tours – October 27th thru 30th

    What lurks behind the lace curtains and wooden shutters of Jacksonville’s historic homes? Come find out on the Haunted Trolley! The Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce’s Haunted Trolley tours are 30 minutes long with a light-hearted approach to local “hauntings”. The tour features multiple sites with special effects and period character interpreters.

    Although we try to stay away from gory stuff, parents are asked to exercise their own judgment regarding a child’s participation in regards to tales of death and dismemberment.

    Tickets for the 2022 season will be available for sale online beginning on October 1, 2022. Get your tickets here.
