Beyond the sunny shores and emerald waters of Panama City lurk spirits, reminders of Florida's battles, murders and destructive acts of nature. Staff at the city arts center can still hear footsteps of inmates pacing the cells of the Old County Jail that once occupied the grounds. A Florida family learned how to befriend the resident ghost of their new home that was fond of whistling at night. A phantom known as Virginia still frequents the elevators of the historic Bay County Courthouse. Using extensive research and interviews, author Beverly Nield details the ghastly history.
