Haunted Houses in Texas

Everything is bigger in Texas, including the number and diversity of creepy attractions and haunted places to explore. Even an evening on the town can turn ghostly. For decades in one of Houston’s oldest bars, for instance, patrons have heard the sound of a body being dragged across the floor above them. Across town, the Elder Street Artist Lofts boasts a spooky double-whammy that explains the high volume of ghost sightings there: it was built on top of a pre-Civil War era cemetery, and it once housed a psychiatric ward. Makes you wonder what kind of art is being created there now.

Speaking of bone-chilling addresses, the haunted White Sanitarium in Wichita Falls was remodeled into apartment units around 2010, despite the fact that ghosts, apparitions, and other paranormal activity have been recorded there since the building opened as an insane asylum in the 1920s. Some might say the current residents are the crazy ones for choosing to live there.
