MONTICELLO , Fla. (WTXL) –  It has been called one of the most haunted cities in the south, with everything from jails, to opera houses, and homes known to send a chill down your spine.

WTXL spent Wednesday morning braving the haunted attractions around Monticello and the history behind the tales.

Starting off at the Monticello Opera House, Mr. Perkins, the man who built the theater is said to appear on stage every now and then and Wednesday morning, he may or may not have flicked the lights off a few times.

The Palmer House is another spooky place that's claimed to be one of the most haunted sites in town. People have claimed to see writing on the wall and feel the presence of spirits much like at the Old Jail.

The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce hosts the Ghostly Trails and Haunted Tails of Monticello in order to spread the rich history and bring in tourism.

For the amateur ghost hunters, Monticello is crawling with the potential to spot a spirit or two, but there's even fun for the faint of heart.
