List of Texas’s Most Haunted Places

Austin’s Driskill Hotel

In 1886, the Driskill Hotel was finished. Rich cattleman Jesse Driskill, who relocated to Texas from Missouri in 1849, was the owner of it.

There is a picture of a young child holding flowers on the third floor. 

Visitors have claimed to have felt as though they were propelled into the air by a force. There have also been reports of ghost sightings on chairs or windows.

At other times, visitors to hotels report feeling something on their bodies, especially on their faces and hands. The property is currently owned by Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

The Grove

The Grove was first constructed in 1861 as a private home for Frank and Minerva Stilley located at Jefferson, Texas 405 Mosley Street. It still looks much the same today. 

Over the years, it has gained a solid reputation, with many people ranking it as one of the most haunted houses in the Lone Star State.

Numerous ghosts are said to haunt it, including a luminous white figure thought to be the ghost of the property’s previous owner, Minerva Stilley. 

It’s also claimed that the victims of the notorious Reconstruction-era murders haunt this location. 

Furthermore, there have been numerous accounts of paranormal activity in the house going back more than a century.

Wichita Falls White Sanitarium

One well-known haunted location in Texas is White Sanitarium in Wichita Falls. It was founded in 1926 as a clinic for people with mental illnesses. 

There have been numerous reports of ghost sightings on the property. There are varying accounts about how eerie the place is. 

Some stories tell of voices coming from the location, while others describe seeing a group of ghostly people playing cards. 

There have been additional reports of people seeing shadows moving around the compound.

Baker Hotel, Mineral Wells

Though the Baker Hotel is currently closed for renovations, ghost sightings have been reported for a long time.

Both of the main spirits who are held responsible for the paranormal activity documented here have been seen numerous times.

The spirit of a bloody nude woman on the seventh floor, who many have speculated may be the former hotel manager’s mistress. 

It is said that she killed herself by leaping from the balcony when the emotional turmoil the affair caused became too much for her to bear.

It appears that the other ghost is the soul of a man who was murdered after becoming trapped in an elevator door.

Yorktown Memorial Hospital

Built in 1951, Yorktown Memorial Hospital was shut down in 1986. It then turned into a drug treatment facility until its ultimate closure in 1992. 

It is said that the abandoned facility is haunted and that the souls of thousands of patients have taken over. 

The building’s caretaker has reported seeing spectral shadows of deceased patients wandering around.

Some of these appear to be regular people, possibly the apparitions of past visitors who came to see the patients. Meanwhile, there are tapping noises on a glass pane on a staircase door every evening.
