Haunted Panama City
September 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Historical Society of Bay County will present a program by local author, Beverly Nield, who will related her latest book, Haunted Panama City. Beyond the sunny shores and emerald waters of Panama City lurk spirits, reminders of Florida’s battles, murders and destructive acts of nature. Beverly will relate many stories about “Haunted Panama City”. Beverly Nield’s work as Ancestry PI will captivate audience members as she works on putting “flesh to the bones” in some of the most fascinating stories from the Bay County area. She will tell how staff at the city arts center can still hear footsteps of inmates pacing the cells of the old jail that once occupied the grounds. Learn how a family befriended the resident ghost of their new home that was fond of whistling at night. Find out about the phantom known as Virginia that still frequents the elevators of the historic Bay County Courthouse. Using extensive research and interviews, author Beverly Nield details the ghostly history of Bay County. Beverly has spent most of her life in England, where she studied history and education at the University of Cambridge. The past has always held a fascination for her, along with all things mysterious. Here in Panama City, she initiated a haunted historical tour of the Downtown, and has recently written a book titled Haunted Panama City, which will be available for purchase at the meeting. Mark your calendars for Monday, September 24th, at 7 pm in the Bay County Public Library, 898 W 11th St, Panama City, Florida. This presentation is free to the public.
