Truly Haunted Places in Texas
We begin with the Von Minden Hotel found in Schulenburg, TX. This location is notorious for high levels of paranormal activity. The 2003 Paranormal Conference was actually held here in this location. The story is that the hotel is haunted by a girl who wears a polka-dotted dress. Her boyfriend committed suicide by jumping out of a window in room 37. Legend has it that she can still be found wandering the theater, people have also heard mysterious knocking from inside the rooms, and doors opening and closing. Life partners from suicide not doing it for you, how about we see what other haunted places in Texas have to offer.
Next, we travel to the Jefferson Davis Hospital, but now known as the Elder Street Artists Lofts. This place used to be a burial ground for plague victims. During the excavation after this place was shut down human bones were uncovered. This place is said to be one of the most haunted places in Texas and definitely Houston. If that is a little too thick for you, you could always head down to La Carafe which is one of the oldest bars in Houston. It is said to be haunted by an old bartender named Carl. There were reports that this African American man can be spotted in the upstairs window after closing time. Sounds of heavy objects can be heard coming from the second floor too, which is completely vacant.
If you are like me you probably like your ghosts sober, so for this we voyage to the Fort Worth Stock Exchange. Where it is said to be haunted by a young girl that suffocated in the vaults. Reports of this came from Security Guards who say the young ghost could sometime be spotted in the attic window, and even story of a tiny hand-print in the condensation on the windows.
