10 Abandoned Underground Spots In Texas That Are Hauntingly Beautiful
I think we can all agree that no matter how much we vow to never step foot in abandoned places because they’re too creepy or dangerous, the intrigue wins us over in the end. So even if you can’t actually travel to and explore these 10 abandoned underground sites in Texas, you can at least marvel at pictures of them – and even that’s more than most people have gotten the opportunity to do.
The ruins of the Swift Meat Packing plant in the Fort Worth Stockyards. Demolished in the ‘70s after being ravaged by two fires, nobody knows exactly what will become of the hauntingly beautiful building.
Underground Dallas in the dead of night, not a soul to be found save for photographers capturing the secrets whispered by the walls when nobody else is around…
Parking garages already evoke a feeling of unease, but that eeriness is magnified tenfold when the level is empty – closed for construction, in this case. Pictured is the lowest level of the parking garage for the Grand Hyatt in San Antonio.
We’ve all heard ghost stories about the abandoned Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, and while those are only rumors, one thing’s for certain: it’s a scary place. Especially the basement.
Another shot of the Swift Meat Packing plant. The TV series "Prison Break" filmed scenes here a few years back, but aside from that, the decrepit building is doomed to wither away and become a distant memory in the minds of those who were alive to witness it in operation.
The remnants of an old factory in South Texas. After closing down, it was used as a haunted house until a tragic fire put an end to that business endeavor. Now, it will remain just like this until it succumbs to the elements.
This abandoned warehouse in Austin looks like it’s been here for a very long time, perhaps since the inception of the Industrial Revolution. I wonder what kind of work was done here over the years.
Another shot of the Baker Hotel, this time in the old massage room. It looks more like a morgue or torture chamber to me…
Inside Fort San Jacinto in Galveston. The vibe in a place with such a somber history is heart-wrenching. It’s almost as if everything the soldiers went through was bottled up and released in this very room.
Although not "abandoned," the cistern underneath Buffalo Bayou in Houston had to be included. You can actually go underground and tour it, feeling as though you’re in a secret labyrinth. It truly is such a neat place.
Is your hair standing on end from merely looking at these pictures? Imagine how the photographers felt spending hours in the dark, spooky underground trying to get the perfect shot…
