Can I visit any abandoned places in Texas?
From ghost towns to fallen hotels, Texas has plenty of abandoned places that would give anyone the creeps. Most of these abandoned buildings are off-limits to the public, but you can visit them and see them from the street. If you find yourself in Wichita Falls, pass by the Old Asylum, also known as Dr. White’s Sanitorium. In Sherman, you can see the old Woodmen Circle Home, which served as a home to hundreds of women and children between 1930 and 1971. Established in 1874, Zedler Mill in Luling is one of the few abandoned buildings you can tour, as it has since been converted into a museum and park.
Are there any urban legends in Texas?
Just like any other state, Texas has its fair share of urban legends that will keep you up at night. In San Antonio, there’s a railroad crossing at Villamain and Shane and as the story goes, a school’s full of children stalled on the tracks in the 1940s, killing everyone inside when a train slammed into it. It’s said that if you go to the tracks and stop your vehicle in the same spot the bus did, your car will mysteriously begin rolling to safety, and many believe its the spirits of the children who died all those years ago.
What are the most popular ghost stories in Texas?
From haunted bars to abandoned buildings, Texas is chock full of spooky ghost stories. One of the most popular ghost stories in Texas that often gets passed around is that of the campers from Camp Lulu Sams. Located near Brownsville, the camp was closed down after one of the counselors went insane and murdered several of the campers. Legend has it that in the evenings, you can hear the screams of the children.
