What are the most haunted places in Texas?
From dirt roads to historic battlefields, Texas has a history with the paranormal that brings ghost hunters from around the world to the Lone Star State looking to capture evidence of the spiritual realm. Located among the backroads of Huntsville, Texas lies one of the most haunted roads in the state, Bowden Road. More commonly known as Demon’s Road, those that travel down this lonely dirt road often see strange red lights, find hand prints on their cars, or even seeing the ghostly figure of a small child. Many believe it’s a shape-shifting demon known as Jinnat.
Are there any haunted hotels in Texas?
If you’re looking to really immerse yourself in a spiritual side, there are several haunted hotels in Texas that you could book a stay at. One of the most haunted hotels in Texas is the Jefferson Hotel in Jefferson, Texas. Built in 1865 and renovated into a hotel in 2016, the property has had quite the history in its 100+ years, including a saloon, and a brothel during the civil war era, and even a funeral home. Over 300 paranormal investigators have taken interest in this historic hotel, and just about all of them believe it is haunted with the spirits of several different entities including a 7 year old boy named Andrew who drowned in a bathroom upstairs, Jacquelyn, a prostitute from New Orleans who came to Jefferson in the 1860s and she eventually hanged herself after watching two men she admired both killed each other in a duel.
Are there any haunted restaurants or bars in Texas?
Care to share your meal with a spirit? Texas has plenty of options to choose from. Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie is known as the most haunted restaurant in Texas, and for good reason. Housed in a historic Victorian home that dates back to 1895, both diners and staff has reported a number of inexplicable occurrences, ranging from food baskets hovering in mid air to glowing blue orbs of light, you never know what you’re going to see when you dine at Catfish Plantation.
