A clock tower, and mausoleum made to order, and an old man with no head waiting to chit chat for a while. Tallahassee does its ghost stories a little differently.
Tripping on Legends travels up to the state capital to examine the case of Calvin C. Phillips, the Northern designer and loner who decided to come to Florida to die. Most people find some kind of peace after death, but Phillips and his story have changed as his body changes over the years, and the man who had been a mystery while he was alive, continues to be one in the afterlife.
If only the poor man could find his head.
