WINTER HAVEN, FL — Ghost stories mixed with a cocktail at a spot frequented by Publix founder George Jenkins, who died in 1996, is one of the spooky but fun places you’ll see on the newly launched Winter Haven Beer, Spirits and Ghost Walking Tour.

Saturday evening, the first haunted group tour hosted by Amada Anderson, founder of Winter Haven Tours, began from the parking garage at Third Street Northwest and Avenue A Northwest downtown. The group walked to the Greater Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce building, and Anderson shared the architecture idea and history of the building.

Notice the names on sponsored bricks in the building’s breezeway? There’s a scary story related to one of those bricks that you’ll have to hear on the tour…..

As the group walked to the next stop, Derry Down, Anderson’s iPad displayed a black and white photo of Gram Parsons, a famous 1960s musician who sang with The Byrds and musically inspired some legends such as The Eagles. The Derry Down was purchased by Winter Haven businessman Bob Parsons in 1964 with the purpose of being an entertainment venue for teenagers and a place for his stepson, Gram Parsons, to practice his music. Gram Parsons died of a drug overdose at 26 in 1973, according to Anderson.
