What are some genuinely haunted places in Texas?
Texas is an enormous state, that’s for sure; of course, with so many square miles to get through, you’re bound to run into a ghost or two… or more. Some of the places are unsurprising – for example, in south Texas, there’s the Yorktown Memorial Hospital in Yorktown, a gigantic, 30,000-square-foot monolith built in the 1950s and now long abandoned. It has all the classic signs of a haunting; from cold spots to shadow people and the spirits of victims killed in alleged botched surgeries, one is never sure what they’ll encounter if they’re brave enough to check it out. Of course, there’s also the world-famous Alamo, said to be haunted by the restless ghost of a Mexican soldier, and the Gage Hotel in Marathon is the afterlife-home of several specters. If you know where to look, you’ll find plenty of places that might just be haunted.
Where are some creepy places in Texas?
Other than the notoriously haunted locations listed above, you mean? Well, there’s plenty more! Some of the creepiest places in Texas – other than the above – include mysterious places like Bragg Road, which is the site of the infamous Bragg Lights. These bizarre, unexplained lights hover above this simple dirt road without human understanding. Swamp gas? Maybe, but if so, it’s some creepy gas! In El Paso, there’s the ever-present legend of La Llorona. Legend has it that she murdered her children and threw their bodies into the Rio Grande to please a lover who didn’t want children. Horrified, he ended the relationship, and despaired, this woman drowned herself in the same river she threw the children into. Her spirit is now what is known as La Llorona, which is Spanish for the crier. Interested in these and some other truly creepy places around Texas?
