Historic Haunted Hotels of Texas

Join me for an A to Z Road Trip!

I’m taking you on a road trip with me by sharing travel photos for this year’s A to Z Blog Challenge. So come along as we explore some of my favorite offbeat, overlooked and just plain interesting places in Texas… and beyond!

 

Today is letter H:
Haunted Historic Hotels

Staying at hotels and motels is an exciting part of any road trip. And some of the most interesting hotels I’ve stayed at have boasted guests who never checked out! Here are a few of my favorite historic haunted hotels in Texas:

Miss Molly’s Hotel in Fort Worth

Unexplained phenomenon is so rampant at Miss Molly’s that this hotel (and former bordello) in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards district has become a mecca for ghost hunters. The venue is even included in the curriculum for parapsychology classes at Texas Christian University.
For more about my experiences at Miss Mollys, check out:

Beckham Hotel in Mineola

With so many people passing through the doors of the Beckham Hotel over the years, it should come as no surprise that it is rumored to be haunted. The three most talked about entities include a woman named Elizabeth who allegedly died after falling down the staircase of the Beckham Hotel. (Some even claim that she appears on Mondays at 3:00 a.m.)

Of all the places I investigated for my book, PARANORMAL TEXAS, Mineral Wells gave me the most bang for my buck!

  1. I think there was a B&B in Jefferson that was supposedly haunted but I’m not sure if it’s still around. The Baker is very impressive for such a rural town.

  2. These are wonderful photos and snippets. I’m especially drawn to the Baker Hotel. Your picture of that hotel is so evocative! Oh, that sad little chair…

      Hey, Sheila! I hope you get to visit all these hotels. If you do, let me know how it goes for you! Thanks for stopping by! :D

  3. Now you MUST go stay a night at the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, AR. And don’t forget the Ghost Tour of the hotel. Lovely place!!! Only an 8 hour drive from Azle!! You’ll thank me..,

      Oh, gosh! I really want to. Maybe later this year. It’s on my to-do list, for sure! Thanks! And thanks for stopping by! :D

  4. Don’t remind me that hotels may be haunted! One time I was looking into a place to stay and B&Bs and I kept thinking “what if there’s a ghost????” I’m too big of a wuss for spending the night with one. LOL

      Hehe! Must admit that I feel braver when my hubby is with me. There was one B&B I researched that I chickened out on staying at because the resident ghost only appears when women stay by themselves! Thanks for stopping by! :D
