Casa Monica Hotel

YMCA founder Franklin W. Smith came to St. Augustine with dreams of opening a lavish resort for all his snowbird friends up north. Unfortunately after he built the hotel he ran out of money and it was bought by Henry Flagler. And like Flagler’s other old hotel the Casa Monica is thought to be one of the most haunted places in St. Augustine. The fourth floor and room 411 in particular is said to be very haunted. In fact, some of the staff refuses to go into the room by themselves! Join us as we take a deep dive into the history of the Casa Monica in St. Augustine. Also don’t forget to download the St. Augustine Ghost Map app and take your own ghost tour.
