For a Good Spook, Travel to These Haunted Texas Towns

By Brian Kendall 10.2.17

Every town in the Lone Star State is rich with history — and historical landmarks, homes, and hotels across the state have had their share of strange happenings. So, just in time for Halloween, we’ve rounded up four of the most haunted places in Texas.

Presidio La Bahía, Goliad

Strange noises and sightings of soldiers have been rumored at this fort, which was home to one of the bloodiest battles of the Texas Revolution.

Hotel Galvez, Galveston

The storied ghost bride of Room 501 has allegedly been haunting the halls of this grand hotel for at least 50 years, along with other phantom guests.

The Driskill Hotel, Austin

Guests who dare to stay here report unexplained giggling and ghost sightings, including that of cattle baron Jesse Driskill, for whom the hotel is named.

Emily Morgan Hotel, San Antonio

Originally used as a medical arts facility, this hotel is known today as the third-most-haunted place in the world, according to USA Today.
