The History

Built in 1888, the Casa Monica is one of the oldest hotels in the United States, was built in 1888. It was built by Franklin W. Smith was a Boston hardware merchant. Smith ran into financial difficulties and sold the hotel to Henry M. Flagler.

The hotel closed in 1932 because of the Great Depression and the St. John's County Commission purchased and renovated the Cordova Hotel in 1962 using it as a county courthouse. Richard Kessler purchased the building from the county in 1997 and began the renovations to open it as a hotel again. It opened in 1999 under the original name of "Casa Monica Hotel."

The Hauntings

There are stories that a guest committed suicide in one of the rooms and now guests claim to feel an icy wind in the room, finding cold spots in certain places and hearing footsteps when they are alone in the room. Some have seen apparitions of men in old-fashioned clothing standing in the room.

Housekeeping staff report hearing kids running, playing and laughing in the hallway, but look in the hall it is empty. It is not uncommon for maids to hear radios and alarm clocks turn on when they are cleaning rooms on the 4th floor.

St Augustine is one of the most haunted cities in America.
