Join American Hauntings and
Haunted Jacksonville host Loren Hamilton for a haunted night at
the eerie Hockenhull Building in downtown Jacksonville!
Robert and John Hockenhull came to Jacksonville from England in
1839, opening a small drug store near this location, then moved
into the current spot in 1891. In the 1950s Walgreens opened a
drugstore in the downstairs of the Hockenhull building and the
top two floors were converted into apartments. On January 15,
1966 a fire broke out on the 2nd floor; with the fire codes not
being what they are today, all seven residents lost their lives
on that cold winter night. Since that time, the building has had
a reputation for being haunted, with people reporting voices,
cries, dark shapes and shadowy apparitions and several strange
occurrences took place during stops at the building on the tour.
Return with us to this spooky spot and take part in a real-life
ghost hunt as we seek out the spirits that linger in the
