|Old City Jail|
To open up the tour Johnson started off with some historical facts and disclaimers. He told us how the jail is indeed haunted and there will probably be some unexplainable experiences within those walls. He informed us that common paranormal experiences reported by tour groups could include: a slab of meat on your shoulder throughout the tour, tingles, being poked, stoking of hair, and auditory experiences.
Johnson told stories about some particularly "savage" inmates, one of which was about Lavinia Fisher who was reported to be the first female serial killer in the United States. She was responsible for luring in and killing hundreds of men. Johnson also told us that her spirit has been known to scratch or mess with men on the tour, which was concerning for a few classmates.
The haunted tour was a good way to wrap up the semester. I think the class had a good time and enjoyed touring it.
