The Abandoned Town In Texas That Most People Stay Far, Far Away From

…Okay, calling it abandoned might be a bit of a stretch, but it’s close. Many people still consider Marfa a ghost town because, for the most part, it’s desolate and uninhabited. There are a few businesses, a courthouse, and a small town square, but seldom will you see residents out and about or pass another car on the street. You might be asking yourself what led to the town’s decline…and there’s a pretty simple answer: the Marfa Lights.

This ghostly phenomenon draws a few brave souls to the town but drives most people far, far away. Nobody knows exactly what they are – UFOs seem to be the running rumor – but whatever they are, they’re completely real and terrifying.

Have you ever experienced the Marfa lights? What about other ghost lights in Texas?
