Haunted Tours at the Maitland Art Center
October 4, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Art & History Museums – Maitland
Greater Orlando’s only National Historic Landmark has quite the history. Named “one of the most haunted spots in Central Florida” by the Orlando Weekly, it holds more than 80 years of stories within its walls. On this tour, you will hear the history and ghost stories of the facility from its staff and students. The Maitland Art Center, originally named the Research Studio, was built by artist J. André Smith during the final years of his life, from 1937-1959. The high walls of the center were created to keep curious minds from encroaching on Smith’s territory during his life, before being officially opened to the public many years after his death. A&H staff still feels the presence of André 58 years later, keeping an eye on the grounds and letting it be known when he is not happy.
