Texas White House
This Fort Worth bed-and-breakfast has had three ghostly experiences occur in the Lone Star Room. All three occurrences have involved a woman staying alone in the room and feeling the presence of another person in bed with them. It is believed that the ghost is the husband of the only family that ever resided in the home because he died there and the Lone Star room would have once been his bedroom.
The 19th floor of this Dallas hotel is the center of paranormal activity according to guests and staff members. When the hotel was originally constructed, the 19th floor was home to the extravagant ballroom but in order to keep standards high in the hotel, renovations were made to accommodate more guests in luxurious style and the ballroom was sealed off. Many guests and staff members have reported hearing big band/swing style music playing softly as well as piano music late at night. Additionally, it is believed that a few guests who once stayed at the hotel never left – one who frequents the bistro and one who wanders the hall crying while searching for her husband-to-be who left her at the altar.
This Cajun-homestyle restaurant in Waxahachie is known as the scariest restaurant in the United States. It is said to be haunted by three ghosts – Will, Caroline and Elizabeth – who were previously residents in the house before it was converted into the restaurant. Both staff members and customers have felt a strange presence, seen inanimate objects move on their own and witnessed cold spots throughout the house. Additionally, alcoholic beverages seem to arouse even more paranormal activity.
