Ted Messimer, aka Southernmost Ted, is a Key West icon. After moving to the island a few decades back, Ted dove headfirst into learning all he could about the island the paranormal activity on the island. His interest in the paranormal originates in childhood and after moving to one of the most haunted cities in the US Ted's inner kid took full advantage!

These days Ted guides small groups on walking ghost tours five nights a week (Wednesday through Sunday) with Key West Ghosts and Mysteries tour company. Ted's tours are 90 minutes and they are packed with incredible stories and exceptionally interesting and spooky demonstrations of paranormal activity and energy. We are ghost tour connoisseurs and Ted is at the top of our list as far as guides. He's funny and incredibly knowledgable. Ted's tours are great even for the non-believers because they are packed with so much interesting Key West history, apart from the ghost stories.

During our conversation we covered:Β 

🌴 What brought Ted to Key West
πŸ‘» Some of his best spooky/paranormal stories both work and personal
🌴 His weekend role as key lime pie slinger and point of sale man at The Key Lime Pie Bakery
πŸ‘» His incredibly prolific path as an author
🌴 His recent diagnosis and brave battle with brain cancer and 
πŸ‘» His latest book on his battle with cancer and his exceptionally unique perspective as a ghost guide examining his own life and mortality

To say that we could have continued talking with Ted all day is an absolute understatement. His story, his love for the island, his knowledge of this incredible place we call home and the people who lived here before (and may still be hanging around), and his endlessly positive outlook about life in the face of a harrowing diagnosis made this one of the most inspiring, interesting, and fun conversations we have ever had the pleasure of having.

We are so grateful to Ted for spending time with us and so graciously and openly sharing his world. It is evident that Ted's goal is to do good with his work and needless to say he is constantly putting good out into the world. Keep it up, Ted!
