What are the most haunted places in Texas? 

Texas is a huge state – and you know what that means. Lots of square mileage means lots of history, and with lots of history comes lots of haunted places. So, what are the most haunted places in Texas, you ask? There’s plenty! One of our favorites isn’t even a “place” at all, per se, but a road: creepy old Bragg Road, in east Texas, is home to an unexplained light that appears and disappears, and all efforts to explain it over the decades have come up empty-handed. It’s creepy and weird, for sure. There’s also Yorktown Memorial Hospital, in southern Texas, an abandoned hospital that once saw its fair share of tragedy and suffering. We also like The Plaza Theatre, in El Paso, which is said to be haunted by restless spirits to this day. Craving more haunted locations in Texas? This article will likely serve as inspiration!  

What are some creepy urban legends in Texas? 

Every state has got its urban legends, and Texas is no different. Perhaps the most famous urban legend in all of Texas’s history is that of the Marfa Lights, a strange and highly notable wave of UFO sightings over the town of Marfa. They still show up to this day from time to time, though the highest number of Marfa Lights sightings was during the 1970s and 1980s. It’s worth noting, though, that the earliest documented sighting of the lights was in 1883. There are a few ideas as to what they are, though nothing has been confirmed yet. There’s also the tale of the screaming bridge, in Arlington, the site of a horrific car crash in the 1960s that claimed the lives of several teen girls. It’s worth noting that the bridge is only accessible by foot, as it’s been closed to cars for years.  

 What are the creepiest places in Texas? 

Where to begin! The Lone Star State is home to plenty of super-spooky spots, like the Hotel Galvez, in Houston, which is said to be one of the most haunted hotels in the state. Another hotel, in Austin, known as the Driskill Hotel, is also home to plenty of creepy ghost legends, and Bragg Road in Saratoga is so creepy that locals don’t dare drive it after dark.
