The Huguenot Cemetery in St. Augustine is one of the most popular tourist sites.

Many people take pictures there and find orbs, mists, or other unexplained anomalies later. The gate is locked, and tourists can only view the cemetery from outside the wall. It dates from 1821 when yellow fever killed many of the city’s inhabitants.

At the time, it was just outside of the north gate. Then non-Catholics were buried there; hence the name, Huguenot. Today, it is the center of town. The cemetery was closed to burial in 1884.

OPI visited and were able to capture on film a mist and bright orbs we believe are spirits. Our Mel meter showed spikes of activity that correlates with the orbs and mists.

Since the site is on a busy highway, EVPs were inconclusive. Cars and other vehicles as well as tourists create a cacophony of sound. Our ovilus, however, spoke some very relevant words, such as fever, bury, and die.

Judge Stickney is sometimes seen sitting in a tree, possibly looking for the people who stole his valuables, including his gold teeth. We do believe there is paranormal activity there.
