This Old Jail In Texas Is Now A Haunted House And We Dare You To Visit This Halloween
Texas has plenty of haunted houses that offer thrills and chills for Halloween, but most rely solely on jump scares and special effects. The Texas Jailhouse in Palestine is different because the building itself – a nearly 100-year-old historic county jail – is scary enough on its own. You’ll still come face to face with plenty of monsters and maniacs, but just seeing all the empty cells that once housed evil inmates will send a chill down your spine.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
