These 7 Haunted Places In Texas Will Send Chills Down Your Spine - Part I

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Amid all of the fun and festivities that go on here, Texas actually has plenty of creepy haunted hotels, warehouses, and hospitals lurking in the shadows, too. And I mean, come on, there’s plenty of places for the spooky and downright terrifying to hide here, but these places definitely top the list for the most bone-chilling sites in the state of Texas. Beware – these scary photos might haunt your dreams tonight, so proceed with caution. Hey, at least I warned you.


1) La Carafe – Houston, Texas

Dating back to before the Civil War, the second floor of this building is said to be haunted. Guests have reported seeing the apparition of a large African American man walking around upstairs, and have heard heavy footsteps and the sound of a body being dragged across the floor. This old wine bar is actually still open for business today, and is believed to be the oldest bar in the city of Houston. So…who wants to grab a drink here after work?


2) Presidio La Bahia – Goliad, TX

Originally founded in 1721, many Texas Revolution conflicts occurred at this Spanish fort, including the Battle of Goliad and the Goliad Massacre. As you can imagine, this site still houses many angry, scared and hurt spirits of soldiers, and their cries of pain can be heard during the night. Also, some witnesses have reported seeing apparitions of soldiers here.


3) Baker Hotel – Mineral Wells, TX

Supposedly, the hauntings began here long before the hotel closed its doors. There are two main spirits that still lurk inside the hotel’s walls, and several witnesses have claimed to see them. One is a ghost of a bloody nude woman on the seventh floor, possibly the mistress of the hotel manager. Apparently the emotional stress from the affair got to her, and she jumped from the balcony to her death. Other people claimed to have seen the ghost of a man who was killed after being caught in an elevator door. If you thought you missed your chance to experience the paranormal activity here, think again. The Baker Hotel is supposedly being resurrected and restored for guests, so if you really want to get in contact with the Baker Hotel ghosts, look out for the grand opening coming soon.


4) Spaghetti Warehouse – Houston, TX

Located in the heart of downtown Houston, this restaurant used to be a pharmaceutical warehouse, and prior to that a cotton storage facility. Most of the ghostly activity happens on the second floor, where legend says that the owner of the pharmaceutical company met a tragic death while working in the elevator late one night. His wife is said to come looking for him after the restaurant has closed at night. Employees washing dishes often see a lady in white walking around (supposedly the man’s wife), and notice table settings and chairs rearranging themselves spontaneously. If you come to eat here, make sure to bring a camera; some diners have even captured orbs in the photos they’ve taken!


5) The Jefferson Hotel – Jefferson, TX

This town is rife with sightings of ghosts and spooky legends, but this hotel is definitely the talk of the town. Said to be one of the most haunted hotels in the whole country, some of the ghosts lurking here have been said to throw objects at tourists and even lock them in their rooms. This is only the tip of the iceberg…other guests have reported knocking on the walls and doors in the middle of the night, footsteps clattering down the halls, children laughing, doors opening on their own, voices echoing in vacant rooms, and more. If you want to stay here, be sure to sleep with one eye open at night.


6) Hotel Galvez – Galveston, TX

One of the oldest hotels on the island, it’s also one of the most haunted. Specifically, Room 505 has guests running from their rooms due to an eerie presence that makes them feel uncomfortable. Oddly, the smell of gardenias is said to be a sign of the ghost’s presence. “The Lovelorn Lady” wanders the halls of the fifth floor as well, eternally locked in the hotel after hanging herself when she learned of her husband’s death at sea. Plenty of people still stay at this beautifully haunted hotel, but few dare to stay in the infamous #505…


7) Granbury Opera House – Granbury, TX

This old theater is reported to be haunted by a tall figure wearing all black with black boots, and some even say it’s John Wilkes Booth. Abraham Lincoln’s assassin used to be a very popular actor and performed here many times, and the Discovery Channel Ghost Lab supposedly captured an EVP of Booth’s voice saying he was there.

      The Spaghetti Warehouse is in Austin, Texas. Not Houston.

        I thought they’d be real places like the George Bush property, Dick Chenney place.. Then lets not forget Houston with all oil HQ places.. Their must be 1000s more ticked off ghosts in those…
