Odessa Haunted Houses

Midland was established in 1881 as the midway point between Fort Worth and El Paso on the Texas and Pacific Railway. I suspect that a few ghosts disembarked in Midland-Odessa and forgot to get back on.

Laredo Haunted Houses

Known for its month long Washington’s Birthday Celebration, I expect that a few of the hundreds of thousands of tourists lose it during the Jalapeno Festival that accompanies it and can later be seen at the haunted houses around Laredo.
