What are some creepy New Mexico ghost stories?  

New Mexico is an underrated state in the American southwest full of outlaws, things that were, and things that would have been. It’s a strange place, considered to be a state filled with paranormal abnormalities and bizarre goings-on that don’t quite make the evening news (but the locals will be happy to tell you everything). Some of New Mexico’s creepiest ghost stories and urban legends include numerous haunted locations in Albuquerque, like the old Hotel Parq Central, which is now a luxurious hotel (but used to be a literal insane asylum). It’s said to be one of the most haunted places in the state! While you’re there, you’ll want to check out the KiMo Theatre, as well. In Cimarron, the St. James Hotel is said to be haunted thanks to shootouts and bad times way back in the day. Would you count aliens as “ghost” stories? Because if so... there’s always the Roswell Incident.
