13 Bone-Chillling Haunts in Texas

By chet | October 25, 2022

haunted house near athens tx

As Halloween gets closer, the ghosts come out to play each night. So to make sure you get your fill of Texas-sized thrills, visit these 13 spots in each part of the state where you’re sure to see something that’ll make the hair stand up on the back of your neck and send chills down your spine. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, you’re in for a screaming good time!

Ghost Road  – Saratoga, TX

Deep in the Piney Woods of East Texas, this creepy road off FM 787, once called Bragg Road, is now officially “Ghost Road” due to its mysterious happenings. Travel down it in the dead of night and turn off your headlights to spot the eerie glowing ball of light that appears and disappears down the road. Many have traveled this road, but no one can find an explanation for the lights. The most popular legend about the Saratoga Lights holds that a man was decapitated by a train when the Santa Fe line ran through the road in the 1900s, and now searches for his head with a lantern through the night.

Monkey Bridge/ Fuller Park – Athens, TX


Though Athens is full of adventure, it also has a darker side that’ll make you go bananas… Legend has it that a circus train was traveling through town when it violently crashed under Thunder Bridge (known to the locals as Monkey Bridge). The surviving monkeys escaped into the forest, but the ones who died in the accident supposedly still haunt the already-creepy overgrown area on West College Street. The legend goes on to say that the escaped monkeys were gathered up by Medford Fuller and kept in giant cages at Fuller Park, where he did unspeakable things and performed creepy rituals. The overgrown park is still there, where you can see the crumbling stone walls and — if you’re brave enough to explore the dark woods — even Mr. Fuller’s grave and the iron monkey cages.

USS Lexington – Corpus Christi, TX


Instead of Casper the friendly ghost, aboard the Lexington you might just find Charlie the friendly tour guide! Many folks have described meeting a very kind and handsome blue-eyed young man, dressed in uniform who happily gives tours of the lower decks. It’s not until these folks are informed that the Lexington doesn’t have tour guides that they are a little spooked. Charlie was an engine room operator who died in 1943 when a Japanese torpedo hit the ship, but even so, I hear his tours are “out of this world!”

Memphis Man – Lubbock, TX


One icy morning in Lubbock, a man stood waiting for the bus to arrive on Memphis Street. When the bus finally came, it slipped on the ice and killed him. People now say that when you drive north on Memphis Avenue in the dark of night, you can still see the figure of a man leaning against the light pole waiting for the bus at the corner of 66th St. and Memphis Ave. When you get closer, he disappears.

Marfa Lights – Marfa, TX

The Marfa Lights are less creepy and more mystifying. Each night around sunset, out in the distance on the horizon of the Chinati Mountains, these unexplained lights show up and disappear randomly. Like some sort of desert disco, they change colors, move around and flash on and off. They’ve been spotted since the 1880s, and explanations range from UFO’s to ghosts of Conquistadors in search of gold.

San Antonio Ghost Tracks – San Antonio, TX

One rainy morning, a school bus full of children stalled as it was crossing the tracks. A train came speeding down the track and the bus was unable to move out of the way, causing a terrible crash and killing 10 children. Now, legend holds that the ghosts of those children push stalled cars out of the way to safety. Park about 50 ft. before  these tracks  on Shane Road, put the car in neutral and turn the engine off. Without touching the gas, your car will travel uphill over the tracks. If you cover the back bumper with baby powder before crossing the tracks, you’ll supposedly find baby fingerprints on the bumper afterwards.

Anson Lights – Anson, TX


Just outside of Abilene, you’ll find yet another unexplainable phenomenon of ghostly lights. On a clear night, drive east on US 180 until you reach a cemetery. Take a right at the country road near the cemetery and drive until you reach a crossroad. Turn back around and face the way you came. Turn off the engine and flash your headlights three times and a strange glowing light will appear in the distance where there was none before. Legend has it that the light belongs to the spirit of a woman searching for her lost children.

The Grove  – Jefferson, TX


While many know Jefferson as the “B&B Capital of Texas,” it is also known as the “Most Haunted Small Town in Texas.” If you’re in town and searching for monsters, then look no further than The Grove. Built in 1861, it is now the most haunted home in Jefferson. Among many disturbances like moving furniture and strange noises, many who visit have reported seeing a Lady in White walking around the front porch and disappearing into the wall of the house.

Catfish Plantation  – Waxahachie, TX

At this restaurant in Waxahachie, your delicious fried catfish comes served with a side of ghostly encounters (and that’s not including the friendly ghost decor if you visit in October…) Rumors go that this house built in 1895 is haunted by past residents including a young man who likes to flirt with the ladies by brushing their shoulders or knees, and a woman named “Caroline” who can often be seen staring out the front window. Things happen so often that a sign at the front says “If you have a ghostly experience, please tell us.”

Presido La Bahia – Goliad, TX


If you’re really looking for a scream, sleep inside the old priests’ and officers’ quarters of Presido La Bahia, the Spanish fort where over 300 men were massacred within and surrounding the fort’s walls. At night, when the fort is empty, you can hear infants screaming and you might just run into a ghostly friar chanting Latin prayers as he paces the Chapel. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a woman dressed in white wandering around the fort.

We tried staying a night in the fort, and you can watch us scream like little girls here .

Susanna Dickinson’s House – Austin, TX


For a good dose of historical spook, visit the house-turned-museum of Susanna Dickinson, the only white female survivor of the Alamo. While on the grounds, folks have seen the curtains of the front windows part at the middle and even the spirit of Mrs. Dickinson, herself, wandering around the property.

Driskill Hotel – Austin, TX


With ancient wells underneath, stories of multiple bridal ghosts wandering through the hotel, and hallways that look like they’ve come straight out of  The Shining,  this 125 year-old hotel has plenty to keep you spooked. To truly experience a scare, stay in Rooms 525 or 429, which are rumored to be the most haunted spots in the hotel. People have even had encounters with Colonel Driskill, himself, who died in 1890 and now enjoys smoking cigars and watching traffic from “his room.”

La Carafe  – Houston


As if visiting this dim, candle-lit tavern with towering mounds of wax everywhere weren’t creepy enough, you might just be served your drink by a ghostly figure. The bar, which was built in 1847, is known as Houston’s oldest building and tends to be haunted by old bartender, Carl Truscott, who died in the 1990. Folks often hear an eerie voice shout out “Last Call” at strange times, or see figures appearing in the front windows late at night. More humorously, many folks have also complained of having to wait forever for a bathroom that ends up being empty or someone brushing up against them in the tiny one room stalls.

The first sightings of the Lady of White Rock Lake date back to the 1930s, predominantly reported by local high school students.

Anne Clark, a local writer, published an account in 1943 of a young couple encountering the lady before she disappeared during their attempt to drive her home. Over the decades, similar stories have emerged, keeping this eerie legend alive.

Though the authenticity of these tales is often debated, some reliable and trustworthy individuals have shared their personal experiences.

The Lady of White Rock Lake remains a spectral figure of Dallas’s past, refusing to fade away. Ghost hunts and events are available those brave enough to venture around the lake at night.

12. de soto hotel, 309 e mills ave, el paso, tx 79901.

The Haunted De Soto Hotel, El Paso

With a history dating back more than a hundred years, the De Soto has welcomed thousands of guests and staff over the years. Some of whom have chosen to stay behind after death.

Some of the reports eminating from this inconspicuous old building are rather terrifying. Common occurences include but aren’t limited to people being bitten, scratched, and touched in various rooms and areas around the hotel.

Paranormal investigators have captured many pieces of evidence on past investigations, documenting scratches and bite marks! Investigations have also thrown up a number of clear EVP’s, with what sounded like a demon answering questions on one particular investigation.

PLEASE NOTE: On Feb 4 2022, a devastating fire burned the building to the ground. It’s hopeful the building will be restored to once again welcome ghost hunters through its doors.

14. presidio la bahia, 217 us-183, goliad, tx 77963.

The Haunted Presidio La Bahia, Goliad TX

The first stop on our tour of Texas ghost stories, leads us to Presidio La Bahia, in Goliad. Presidio La Bahia was founded back in 1721 and over the years there have been many Texas Revolution conflicts that have taken place at the fort including both the Battle of Goliad and the Goliad Massacre.

As you can probably imagine Presidio La Bahia has seen a great deal of death, so it is hardly a great surprise that it is regarded as having several ghosts. There is an abundance of spirits trapped here, some of them scared and hurt, but most of them angry!

There have been frequent reports that the cries and screams of injured soldiers can be heard coming from the fort at night and there have been reports of witnesses seeing the apparitions of soldiers as well.

15. Hotel Galvez

2024 seawall blvd, galveston, tx 77550.

The Haunted Hotel Galvez, Galveston TX

The Hotel Galvez is one of the oldest hotels on Galveston Island and it is also one of the most haunted locations in Texas.

Room 505, in particular, is said to be haunted and many guests cannot make it through the night due to feeling so uneasy in the room.

There is often an unexplained scent of Gardenias in the hotel which is said to signal the ghost’s presence. The spirit is known as ‘The Lovelorn Lady’ and she has been seen wandering the halls on the fifth floor of the hotel.

She died in the hotel after hanging herself when her husband died at sea.

16. Yorktown Memorial Hospital

728 w main st, yorktown, tx 78164.

Haunted Yorktown Hospital, Yorktown TX

The hospital was built in the forties and remained open until 1988, but even before it closed its doors the staff, patients and visitors were reporting paranormal activity in the building, so imagine what it must be like now that it is abandoned!

One of the most well-known ghosts in residence is a man named TJ who died of a heroin overdose. He was dumped on the front step by his friends, but as they failed to ring the bell nobody discovered him until the next morning by which time he was already dead.

He is said to haunt the hospital but seems to be in good spirits as he tends to joke around with any of the ladies who enter the old hospital. He is particularly fond of pinching them on the butt!

It has also been claimed that if anyone with tattoos or body piercings enters the chapel then the spirits of the nuns who built and operated the hospital will choke or hit them for defiling their bodies.

The on-site caretaker has also described seeing black ‘shapes’ the size of a large dog, and a large man with glowing red eyes! These are just a small number of the many reports that have come from this extremely haunted building!

17. Emily Morgan Hotel, San Antonio

Emily Morgan Hotel

Particularly active floors include the 3rd, 7th, 9th, 11th, and 12th, where guests have witnessed strange occurrences such as wine bottles sliding off tables, toilet seats banging, and dark figures gliding through rooms. Elevators at the hotel also seem to have a mind of their own, repeatedly visiting floors without any apparent reason.

Built in 1924 in a Gothic style, the Emily Morgan Hotel was originally a medical center, complete with terra cotta gargoyles depicting various ailments. In 1976, the building was converted into an office space before being renovated in 1984 to become the hotel it is today.

The hotel’s name pays homage to Emily D. West, a servant woman known as Emily Morgan, who played a significant role in the Battle of San Jacinto during the Texas War for Independence. Legend has it that Emily delayed Mexican General Santa Anna long enough for the Texas army to storm the camp and secure victory.
