The old Leon County Jail was considered to be haunted before it closed during the 1960s. There were reports of odd happenings, such as the sensation of being pushed, feeling someone pass by on the stairs, mysterious shadows, the feeling of not being alone, pounding on the wals, and the extremely heavy and locked cell doors opening and closing.
A new Leon County Jail was built in the early 1990s on the same location as the old jail. Among some of the more notable inmates at the time was serial killer Ted Bundy. Inside the facility, officers and medical staff have seen the ghost of a woman in period clothing walking around in the halls and crying at night in the medical department.
