Spectral Musings, History, Ghost and Art Tour of the Don Vista building/Suntan Art Center

October 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


When asked about haunted places on St. Pete Beach, most people think of the Don Cesar hotel. We have something even older, and possibly also haunted by Thomas Rowe: The Don Vista building!  The Don Vista, which currently houses the Suntan Art Center, was built in 1924. Thomas Rowe lived there while he oversaw the construction of the Don Cesar.

The St. Petersburg Paranormal Investigation and the Suntan Art Center invite the public to attend Spectral Musings, A History, Ghost and Art Tour. The event will offer an opportunity to learn more about the historic Don Vista building. Come and learn the stories of the three mysterious presences who occupy the space and share it with local Florida artists.

Tour times are 7 and 8 PM. This tour is designed to highlight history, theories on paranormal investigation, and show off some of the splendor of our local artists. It is family friendly. Tours should take approximately 30-40 minutes and will be housed entirely inside the building. In between, we invite attendees to view our special “Autumn Harvest” art show depicting autumn themed works. Seasoned paranormalist and professor, Dr. Brandy Stark, will be present and will do brief discussions on ghost investigations, talk about her 20 year investigation experience, and answer questions.

The event is free, though love offerings and donations for the Suntan Art Center, a not-for-profit organization, are encouraged. Participants may also purchase a booklet about the haunting.
