The Creepy Small Town Near Dallas – Fort Worth With Insane Paranormal Activity

Mineral Wells, located about 50 miles west of Fort Worth in Palo Pinto and Parker counties, was named for the mineral springs discovered here in the late 1800s. In the early 1900s, the town drew national interest, including being selected as the spring training site in 1919 for the Chicago White Sox. It’s biggest claim to fame, however, is its now-shuttered, opulent Baker Hotel. The hotel is said to be the most haunted place in Texas. But it’s not the only location with paranormal activity.
