This Texas Asylum Is Among The Most Haunted Places In The Nation

Insane asylums are already creepy enough, but what about when the patients are free to roam the halls as they please? Former residents of Dr. White’s Sanitarium in Wichita Falls are bound to be filled with anger – especially those who died from inhumane experiments performed on them. And since they weren’t confined to a single cell, their spirits could be anywhere in the entire building… so beware of this haunted asylum in Texas.

Check out this video of a paranormal crew investigating the asylum. It’s hard to ignore this evidence:

What are the most haunted places in Texas?

Why visit one haunted place in Texas when you can visit an entire haunted town in Texas? Texas is known for its "bigger is better" MO, and the town of Jefferson gives new meaning to this mantra. This seemingly quaint little town in East Texas has been named the most haunted small town in the state by a variety of sources, and all it takes is one visit to figure out why. Nearly every building has a ghostly story behind it – especially the hotels where you’ll be staying if you choose to spend the night. Perhaps the most famous haunted attraction in Jefferson is the ghost walk that takes place every Friday and Saturday night -- this trek winds through a haunted cemetery, the town's darkest alleyways and emptiest courtyards, an abandoned house nicknamed "The Grove" that is a hotbed of paranormal activity, the Excelsior House, and the Jefferson Hotel. In fact, for those brave enough to spend the night in the notoriously haunted Jefferson Hotel in Texas, you might wake up with a few ghost stories of your own!
