Debbie Dye has been collecting Cedar Key ghost stories for four years. She was inspired to do the tours by a haint mistress and retired history teacher in Virginia. According to UrbanDictionary.com, “haint” is a Southern colloquialism for a ghost, apparition or lost soul.
Dye plans to bring Cedar Key’s haunted history alive by conducting a walking tour from the Cedar Key Historical Society Museum at Second and D Streets. Dates and exact times of the tours will be announced in the near future and will begin in the late afternoon and end after sunset.
The businesswoman said she wants to unearth more information about a ghost that has been seen from the area of the No. 4 bridge, swinging a ball of light in the vicinity of where the old railroad tracks were once located.
