Abilene – The Anson Light – It is just one light (bluish in color) and if you try to drive towards it goes away. Turn the car around so that it is facing the cemetery.

In another room a specter plays with the visitors belongings. It likes to use their credit cards, money, and driver’s license to play a game of poker under the bed. In the last room during the hours of 12 and 2:30 a foul smell is present in the room, which is said to be the same spirit that likes to play with the lights and belongings. There was also a case where a mysterious man wearing all green and a cap that concealed all of his face except for his red beard. He was working in the office in the early morning hours; the next day it was discovered that no men were employed at this motel, yet he had a set of keys and checked in customers. There were no other employees at the establishment at the time.

Albany – rail road tracks – back many years ago there was a wreck on a rail road track and it killed children…….now late at night if you kill your vehicle and park on the track and put baby powder on the bumper of your car you will see hand prints from the children trying to push you across the tracks.

There is also a spirit who has caused major problems in the store by making accidents happen and causing damage to the merchandise and equipment at the store. The associates have nicknamed the practical joker “Matilde” or Matilda” because the sex is not known. On the other hand, the problem causing spirit has never been named because the associates prefer no contact with that spirit. The Wal-Mart is built on an old homestead site of the original Collins Family who founded Alice. The Old Collins Cemetery is adjacent to the Wal-Mart.- July 2005 Update: The Wal-Mart has been bought and is now a Sutherlands.

Alice – William Adams Junior High or Middle School – A young teenaged girl is said to roam the place looking for her love which is said to have killed her.

Indians came in killed the wife and threw the baby into the creek. Cars stall, banging on the out side of cars and reports of a ball of light chasing passersby.

Allen – Eagle Stadium – It is said that Eagle Stadium is haunted by an ex-football player that died 65 years ago. There has been sightings of a shadow running down the field at midnight, but the ghost has only been seen on Friday nights after a game.

People have claimed to hear the screams of the children. Though most of the locals figure it is the teens that hang around there. Some people even claim to have seen figures sitting on the ledge of the pit. Park and get off to see everything up close. There is a definite sense of sorrow and gloom surrounding the area.

Alvin – Harby Jr. High – This place is teeming with weird things. During the Galveston Hurricane of 1900, some bodies were buried where the school was built. Teachers have reported seeing the faces of people in windows. Also showers in the locker rooms will turn on without anyone in the locker room.

Amarillo – Gebo’s – Formerly Bonanza Supermarket – back in the 1980’s , before Gebo’s ever opened a second store, a supermarket called Bonanza was there. people say that an employee there was killed in the meat department one night. Present day, stories of the ghost haunt Gebo’s.. Moving items and misplacing them at night… since then, the employees try to avoid night inventory. In the morning, things would be out of place… Lots of employees have seen what the ghost has done.

Amarillo – Tradewinds Airport – Rumor has it that back when the place was a private air strip, a woman caught her husband with his mistress in their private plane and killed both of them then committed suicide. This would explain the distinct smell of perfume, which comes and goes(even in the strongest breeze) Also strange lights( like a plane gearing up) can be seen coming from an abandoned hanger. From this same area the sounds of arguing have been heard but there is no one there.

Andice – Blue Light Cemetery – Babies cries are heard accompanied with the feeling of being watch and a blue light, has also been spotted.

Andrews – Andrews Middle School – they say that when you go to the school when its dark you can park your car in an angle with your headlights on in front of the school and you can see a shadow that spells out ” Thirteen ” because the legend goes that a young boy use to always tag drawings and that he died on his birthday the 13th and that was the same day he died.

Andrews – Shafter Lake – Just north of Andrews, Texas, west of Highway 385, is the original location of the county seat of Andrews County, Shafter. It was named after a Union Army Soldier of the same last name. The town was almost completely wiped out by a smallpox epidemic around the turn of the last century, possibly sometime before 1910. Up until about ten years ago, the cemetery where the victims were buried was located on the near edge of the small lake (which comes and goes as it pleases), but the bodies were moved and reentered elsewhere. Legend was that a “lady in white” haunted the graveyard, possibly the reason for its removal. Sometime during the fall of the year, you may also see a troop of Confederate soldiers and their horses galloping across the lake, usually during a full moon. Most think it is General Shafter and his men, who did patrol that area before it was settled, trying to escape Comanche Indians pursing them. By the way, the lake wasn’t (and isn’t) always there. It just appeared sometime in the forties, according to my mother, who lived in the area from 1948 on. The water is very salty, not good for anything, and there is no explanation for its being there at all.

Anson – Haunted Bridge on the outskirts of town – An old metal bridge in the outskirts is supposedly haunted by some hanging victim. It is extremely loud if you drive on it and if walked upon footstep can be heard underneath and wind blowing on one side yet be calm on the other.

Anson – Anson Lights – The story was covered by the television series Unsolved Mysteries about a year ago. Many residents from Anson and the near town of Abilene have gone to witness these phenomenal lights. The cemetery is located going towards the country. The lights are viewed by driving down the dirt farm road equivalent of about a half mile or more. As you drive closer to the cemetery towards the lights they disappear. As for the actual story for this occurrence, is unsolved. Local myth says that this light is the ghost of a mother carrying a lantern looking for her missing child. The child had left the house on cold winter day and was lost and froze to death. The mother’s spirit still searches for her child.

Aquilla – Lavanot – there this really old cemetery that’s back in the woods, its a historic marker but you have to go through a field to get to it. but once you get back there there’s an opening in the trees were you can see into the field around you. well if you flash your lights toward that opening then you’ll see this 18 wheeler-diesel (w/o a trailer) coming right at you. If you don’t leave right then it will come to you.

Aquilla – trains on the invisible railroads – There used to be a railroad track here. A long time ago the city burnt down twice because of the trains throwing sparks, so they decided to just take up all the rails. Well every now and then around 12:00 midnight you can here the train.

The whole area around it was a ranch, and that’s where the family lived. The murders happened in the 60’s or early 70’s. There are two stories; the first being the family had a retarded son they kept in the cellar, but not abusively. He lived down there, had everything he need, bathroom, bed, television. There is a large walk in freezer down there too. Apparently he murdered his parents and kept the bodies in the freezer, and eventually died himself. The second story is that The kid that lived there wasn’t retarded, and after his parents died of natural causes lived there. It’s said he was a pedophile and a child murderer and would kill children and hide their bodies in the freezer. Right now it’s zoned for commercial use, so companies keep buying the property with plans to level it and put a building there. About two or three weeks later, they’ll sell it. Reports of a family who bought it and started to renovate it. New shingles, new windows, all the graphite on the outside is gone, but 3 weeks later, all work on the house stopped. Right now there is a fence around the property, and the road has been lowered, but you can still see it. – March 2007 Update: Burned down Summer 2006

Also if you do not leave him a seat on opening night to each place in the auditorium it has been known for plays to go bad very quickly so the theatre crews always leave him a front row seat empty

Arlington – Bowie High School – It’s rumored that a man was either killed during the building of the school or was a custodian there, and we have nicknamed him “Leonard.” He lives in the catwalk in the auditorium, and has reportedly thrown small rocks onto the stage.

All involved were killed and since then the road has been closed and can only be walked to through the park. Legend has it that if you find the bridge you will see the dates of the occurrence and the names of the deceased glowing as tombstones in the water and if after that you still dare you can sit in the middle of the bridge on the night that it happened and at midnight you will witness a heavy fog coming up from the river as you see headlights approaching from either side of the bridge.

Arlington – River Legacy Park – The Hobo – Near the park are some railroad tracks that run through an area called Mosier Valley so the park is a good getting off place for the train hoppers since the train has to slow down here. One night an old hobo was staying in the park and was awoken by the sounds of screams. Wondering to the edge of the woods from where he had been sleeping he saw a car parked and what appeared to be a man and a woman fighting. Walking closer he saw the man hitting the woman and the woman knocked unconscious. Opening the door he grabbed the man but in the struggle that ensued was shot. The next day the woman was found wondering through the park delirious and half naked but the hobo laid dead next to where the car had been. However, lovers parked late at night still catch a glimpse of the old hobo.

She supposedly can be seen walking the railroad tracks or in her room in the yellow house turning the light on and off or opening the curtain and then closing it. Security guards at night also have problems locking the upstairs door because “ANNIE” feels playful.

She states, “My father was a “craftsman” carpenter as some people call it and he built a lot of things around Austin and loved nothing better than to make things in his shop which was our garage. People would see the garage door open and stop to talk to him and he would help anyone who needed anything made. He was 74 when he died in his shop doing what he loved. He left me and my Mom in debt and a rundown house so we could only afford a cremation. I am a big believer that people should be buried where their happy doing what they loved. So me and my friend took my dad to home depot on brodie, mainly the garden section because their were people around. I let my father’s ashes go their because he had a love for making things and helping people. His name is Herbert, nick name herb. I am a little freaked out about this because I wanted to do right by him by placing him where he loved to shop and run up his home depot credit card!

After extensive renovations and the addition of the round crenulated front wing and the rear tower the rambling mansion took on the look of a castle. It was completed in 1938 and Mrs. Whiting, who mostly supervised the renovation, named it “Inverness”. The residence has seen several owners in the past and at one time Gary Stewart stayed there while filming a movie in the 1950’s. In the not so distant past the castle was vacant for a long period of time and was in such disrepair it was on the verge of being condemned. It is now currently occupied and restored.

Nacogdoches – Stephen F. Austin State University – Mays Hall 11 – Before the building was a dormitory, it was a hospital, with a morgue in the basement. On the other end of the building is a deep, ruined bomb shelter from the early 40s ar 50s. In the basement is a very negative feeling, very hard to describe. It is usually locked, but occasionally residents break in and wander around. It is mild there though. The bomb shelter has been locked for years but last year was broken into. Recently we discovered what appears to be a false wall in there, because the lining on the wall ends (no one noticed before because of the lighting and the junk all over the floor).. The negative feeling from the basement is present in the bomb shelter too, but grows as you near the false wall. Dorm residents are curious to explore but don’t want to get caught. No one knows any specific stories, but we all speculate it would have to deal with someone dying in one fo the hospitalrooms. No ideas about what’s behind the false wall, though. – Febuary 2005 Correction:there was never a morgue. The first floor of the original wing was the campus clinic which did have a couple of overnight observation rooms, but the city hospital was (and still is) less than half a mile away and the campus clinic was never used for long term care. The clinic closed when the “short wing” was built in the 60’s, and the clinic was renovated into rooms (which is why those rooms resemble the short wing rooms more than the rooms above. The false wall in the bomb shelter and it was a bomb shelter at one time it still had emergency rations (not sure if they are still there) covers an alcolve that to hold air filtration gear. A shaft behind the wall runs into the main basement.

Waco – Baylor University – Baylor Residential – Formerly listed as Brooks Hall – At Baylor University, the oldest college in the state of Texas, exists a mysterious phantom on the abandoned fifth floor of the oldest dorm on campus. Violin music is heard in the dead of night and chilling sightings of a cloaked figure in top hat and cloak staring down and illuminated by an eerie candlelight have been widely reported by spooked residents. Investigations have wielded little fact but the enormous amount of eyewitness accounts and spine tingling sightings have given the legend a grand following. One night the shattering of glass was reported as the phantom peered down and paused his playing and in a fit of apparent rage struck a window. Come morning when level heads prevailed and the storm of the previous night had passed, no damage was found. Still the unpredictable toiling of the phantom have attracted audiences in the witching hour in hopes of catching a glimpse of the mysterious floating candlelight that often hovers from room to room and then vanishes only to appear in the other wing of the building. One unsettling account recollects the viewing of a noose and dangling of a shadowy corpse after the phantom finished the evening’s mournful serenade. Still more haunting is the episode on record of the lights failing the building and an ungodly tapping and cold sensation filtrating the respective doors of the fourth floor of the building. Only one resident dared investigate the unwelcome visitors calling. It is claimed that he peered into pitch darkness to find the horrific silhouette of a cloaked figure in a top hat turn and stare him down through the darkness and calmly vanish out of sight as he glided parallel down the corridor, needless to say it was not pursued. The university has failed to satisfy rumors of hauntings and has downplayed the events for close to half a century now. The Victorian styled villain who roams the corridors of the uninhabited floor and occasionally mingles with the living loves to make an entrance, the hoax is to elaborate for any collegiate prankster and the tradition has endured for too long. Perhaps the only explanation is that the phantom is ultimately unexplainable. – October 2007 Update – This old hall was recently torn down. A new Baylor residential college has been built in it’s place.

It was purchased by the Fant family in 1940 and reports of ghostly encounters are given by a relative who lived in the house off and on during a 30 year period. She reports seeing shadows on the staircase, feelings of being touched by an invisible hand, seeing ghostly figures and on one occasion the sounds of someone violently pounding the inside of the locked basement door when she was alone in the house. The current owners have had no encounters with any ghostly presence but a worker states that an unseen person tried to push them off the stairs on the second floor.
