Abandoned buildings are found all throughout Texas. From mansions to mills to hotels, these eerie places come in all shapes and sizes. Tucked away in the small town of Premont is one abandoned theater that is hauntingly beautiful. The Rig Theater was once a lively and exciting place to go but is now left empty and in disrepair. And while humans no longer go inside this building, spirits do. This abandoned Texas theater is believed to be haunted and it’s one of the creepiest places you can visit in this area of the Lone Star State.
