In the mood for a real fright? Spend the month of October spooking yourself from visits to some of the scariest ghost towns in the state of Texas. You are sure to be frightened by the dilapidated, eerie ruins that are left in these towns.
Business was booming and Indianola, Texas was one of the most prosperous cities on the Texas coast. Now, most of the city is located underneath the bay. Residents of the city thought that they were protected from hurricanes, but in 1875 a giant hurricane took place and wiped out the town. There are faint remnants of the town, such as pieces of the town courthouse that remain and can be seen by visitors. A visit to Indianola is eerie as there is a clear understanding that a bustling town with a booming economy used to exist there.
Helena was a busy city until the town made the decision not to pay a bonus to the railroad. City officials made this decision to avoid having the railroad go around the town. During this time, any town without access t to a railroad had a difficult time keeping business afloat. In response to not paying the bonus to the railroad, the president of the railroad company re-routed the train to be even further away from the town. Residents began moving away and in a flash, it became a ghost town. Plenty of ruins from the town still exist and are certainly worth a visit.
This coal-mining ghost town was once a booming town but today has a population of 25 people. With over 10,000 people in 1886, this town specialized in mining coal and was known as one of the largest coal-mining towns in all of Texas. In 1903, the mining employees unionized and the mines closed down. Thurber then became a ghost town. A cemetery still exists which has over a thousand graves to see. Other buildings also remain standing, such as homes, a church and old businesses.

Overcoming Adversity: How to Remain Strong as a Top Haunt Even After Tragedy Strikes The Haunted Hotel in Beaumont Tells All.
The Haunted Hotel in Beaumont Texas is one of the longest, continuously running haunted attractions in the country. This Halloween will be its 34th year in operation. It’s a little known fact that the Haunted Hotel has inspired several of the major haunted attractions across the U.S. and has been noted as a trendsetter of several “special” events, most notable being The Haunted Hotel EXTREME. This little secret in Southeast Texas has become a frightful Halloween tradition that has span several generations of fans looking to get their thrills and screams every Fall.
The origin of the Haunted Hotel began in 1982 inside the historic Rosemont Hotel in downtown Beaumont, TX. For 21 years they continued to grow and provide the community with a safe, but scary haunted experience. At the end of the 2003 season, they closed the doors to the attraction for the last time, or so they thought. Deteriorating conditions of the building forced them to leave the original location as the lease would not be renewed. Owner Eric Metts said, “It was hard leaving a place that we had called home for over two decades, and we literally thought that would be the end.” But little did Metts realize how much the Haunted Hotel really meant to their fan base. There was an outpouring of support along with demands that the Haunted Hotel NOT close its doors on the community.
After several months of limbo, a new location was presented to Metts inside an entertainment complex, and the birth of the second chapter of the Haunted Hotel began. General Manager, Barry “Bear” Blaisdell, who has been involved with the Haunted Hotel since 1986 said, “It was amazing to see and hear how many people actually looked forward to the Haunted Hotel, and it was a miracle that we were even able to pull off the 2008 season at all.” He quickly added, “But it wasn’t exactly a perfect season.” On September 13, 2008, the Haunted Hotel had an unexpected guest, a category 4 Hurricane named “Ike”. After quick repairs, and some blood and sweat added to the mix, they managed to make it through the season and continued to scare everyone that walked through the doors for the next 8 years. As the Haunted Hotel continued to grow and was on track for a record season, the forces that be had other plans in mind.
Blaisdell said, “It’s crazy how the journey took us from here, threw us numerous obstacles, and left us right back where it all started.” The Haunted Hotel is back at Crockett and Orleans once again for the biggest event to hit downtown in years. They are located at 447 Orleans St. in the historic city of Beaumont, Texas. Construction just began in April so only the first floor will be open to haunt-goers this year, but it’s 5,000 square feet of raw fear and all new scenes.
“Smaller sure, but our haunt fans couldn’t be more supportive and excited. It just goes to show that if you create a proper tradition of haunting and treat your customers to the scares they expect, you don’t just end up with a great haunted house but an amazing fan base and heart-warming community support. We have THE BEST haunted house fans,” said Metts. “Future plans are in the works to grow and spread the attraction to the other floors, but this season is sure to be the most talked about, and we want to share this experience with everyone. A bigger building means a bigger crew, more insane scenes, and new memories to share with new generations.”
They have been working very hard to get this rolling and can’t wait to show you what will be lurking in the shadows of their new haunted home. Welcome to the Haunted Hotel where once you check in, you may never check out!
