Any of your cities have urban legends or haunted areas???

In Waco, we have the Legend of the Goatman who lives in Cameron Park, also the mysterious witch Houston.

Just two off the top of my head. The most obvious, the Lady of the Lake (White Rock). Also the Snuffers on Greenville is supposed to be haunted.

I've never heard that before!

I think everyone in Dallas has heard of the Lady of the Lake before.

The catwalk of the auditorium at Jesuit was supposedly haunted, and I know people, including the theatre director, who've said they've seen strange things back there. However, they just completely gutted it, so IDK if it's still "haunted."

We have Jake's bridge. It's similar to the one in SA centering around those Railroad tracks. Cars get pushed across the bridge by an unseen presence. There are some people who believe it's just a very slight hill that causes cars to roll but there are believers.

O. L. Slaton Junior High in Lubbock is supposedly haunted. Several teachers have died in their classrooms, and it was used as a temporary morgue after the 1970 tornado.

The third floor and bell tower of Lubbock High are supposedly haunted as well. It's a 78 year old building, so there's no telling what happened there.

There's also a road south of town called Woodrow Road that's supposedly haunted by an Indian spirit. I laugh every time I hear this one.

When I was a kid growing up in Brazoria, we had Bailey's Prairie. I'm not sure I've ever seen a light bobbing around in that field though. I thought I did once, but it could have been anything.

There are supposed to be some light orbs that chase your car near Saratoga Texas. I remember kids form high school would go looking for them. Who knows what people are seeing.

Ghost Road, Bragg Road, Saratoga Light, Saratoga, Texas, South Texas Paranormal Society

Now I have seen this. I am not saying it is a ghost, but there is definitely something about the wall that looks like a face when the moonlight shines on it. It's on the side of a building at UTMB. Probably just the way the rock is formed, but it is creepy at night.

I've always wanted to go to those tracks in SA and try it. I remember when they had an episode of it on Mosted Haunted Places (I think that's not even the show's name lol).
