Haunted Restaurants, Taverns, and Inns of Texas

We rated this book:


What is it that keeps spirits connected to a particular place or object or building? No one knows, but there are enough stories of such instances that all cannot be ignored or written off as swamp gas. The state of Texas is huge, and, consequently, the stories of such happenings are many. Looking for a headless railroad man swinging his lantern as he searches for his head? Spring, Texas had such a ghostly apparition spotted by many. Perhaps most interesting is that these apparitions seemed connected to the train depot — a building that had been moved to Spring from Lovelady. The same apparition had been seen there before the move, and the apparition disappeared when the depot burned to the ground. The city of Houston has many such stories, but perhaps the most interesting is at the Spaghetti Warehouse, a restaurant in a warehouse from the 1800s. Voices, noises, furniture being moved, and ghostly groups are not uncommon. The stories are rich, well-written and well-researched, fascinating, and scary. If one wants a haunted vacation or ghostly meal, Texas has a lot to offer and so does this book with over fifty dark stories from around the state.
