Unlike Thomas Jefferson's home in Virginia, the city in Florida is pronounced "mont-i-SEL-o," not "mont-i-CHEL-o".
Monticello is a beautiful small town in Northwest Florida with loads of southern charm by day... and ghostly spirits by night. Designated the South's Most Haunted Town in October 2003 by ABC News, the haunted hype still surrounds the town — from the hanging tree in the middle of the square to the 1872 John Denham House Bed and Breakfast. In fact, the Denham House has been named one of the top places to get in bed with a ghost by USA Today.
Monticello, FL has a historic 19th century opera house that still features regular musical performances, as well as theater productions and musicals. The first floor ballroom also holds receptions on a regular basis.
We are staying at the 1872 John Denham House [haunted].
Tomorrow we are off to White Springs, FL.
