Why is Orlando So Haunted?

Before Walt Disney ruled Orlando, several Indigenous tribes settled in Spanish Florida, finding refuge from the encroaching European colonists. Over time, their cultures melded into one, creating the Seminole Tribe. When they fell under American rule, the government attempted to force them out, leading to the Seminole Wars. A few decades later, the town of Orlando was laid out.

 

The population exploded during reconstruction, and it was established as a city in 1885. The area became known as the center of Florida’s citrus industry and, later, as a resort town. But it wasn’t until the 1960s when Walt Disney announced plans to build his mega-theme park, that the Orlando we know, and love was born. Walt Disney World opened in 1971, and the rest is history.

Lizzie Borden Tour

Today, the city is a world-renowned tourist destination and sets a standard for resort cities worldwide. When most people think of Orlando, they think of theme parks, cartoon characters, and thrill rides. But this tourist trap has much more in store than just amusement parks. 

You’ll be surprised to know that O-Town is very haunted.  Ghosts and spirits abound in Orlando, and they’re all over the city. The spooky Greenwood Cemetery is known to attract the ghosts of children who died much too young. Visitors claim to have been roused by their spirits while strolling through the graveyard. The town of Lake Helen, just a few miles away, is known as the “Psychic Center of the World,” and everybody there is a medium of some sort.
