GHOST TOURING TEXAS WITH

LISA LEE HARP WAUGH

Reviewing and Rating The Best and Worse Ghost Tours Of Texas. Listed and rated below are some of the best Texas Haunted paranomal active hotspots you could ever visit.

Please use my rating guide to discover for yourself these great Texas haunted ghost town tours worth taking. And also be aware that all tours sometimes do not live up to their real haunted reputations.

Some might be over rated or just not up to parr. Seasonal Halloween ghost tours often are thrown together in a very rushed last minute manner and often or not worth openly rating.

 

Halloween only Texas ghost tours - That is if they are not the shinning great ghost tour that haunts the city streets all year long. Often some of these tours are rather well worth the admission fee but or only offered at special times of the year. Unless one of these tours is exceptional I will not bore you with a rating of such tours.

I believe my ratings are more then fair and have also questioned others who have taken these tours to make my personal assessments.

The following review represents the sole views of the author only THAT OF LISA LEE HARP WAUGH. The opinions are those of the author alone and do not represent the views of any other party or of this web site.

I judge my ratings by the Ghost Tour guides ability to capture and hold my attention. I also poll the people in attendance and locals in each city before making a final judgment in awarding the rating I give the actual tour in general.

There are many great ghost tours across America an around the world and in the Great haunted State of Texas. Some just tend to pop up around Halloween while others spook the daylights out of us 365 days a year.

And whilst visiting different cities around the world they to often might surprise you when comes to how haunted they really are. Of course the Great state of Texas is no exception.

From the likes of Dash Beardsley the great one and only Texas Ghostman. And he Best Texas ghost story author the great man himself Mitchel Whitington. Or the best real number one ghost hunter in Texas to actual ghost touring people who are therejust to be curious about what the paranormal world has to offer.

Rating the real ghost tours of Texas.

GHOST TOURS OF GALVESTON ISLAND WITH DASH BEARDSLEY

RATING

"The Best Little ghost Tour In Texas!"

If there is the ideal ghost tour guide in Texas, then of course it is Dash Beardsley. A captivating speaker who draws you into the world of the dead that haunt the shores of Galveston Island.

Beardsley is a master story teller. He has that personal charm and charisma that makes you become part of the story. I can only suggest to all those that give real ghost tours that, Dash Berdsley is the man to emulate. His skills of presentation and historical knowledge of the local ghosts stories and urban legends is more themnimpressive.

If you are going to have an encounter with a real Texas ghost, it is most likely going to actually happen on this tour. Skeptics beware!

THE GROVE JEFFERSON, TEXAS BEST GHOST TOUR

 

The Grove, a historic property in Jefferson, Texas.

The Grove is a private residence and tour home in the old Stephen Smith Land Grant section of town. The house was built in 1861 by Frank and Minerva Stilley.

It had one structural change in 1870, the addition of a room to join the detached kitchen to the house, and another change in the 1930's when an indoor bathroom was added and the side porch enclosed.

Other than that, the house stands pretty much as it did back in 1861. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Parks Service, and has been designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark by the Texas Historical Commission.

The house has been said to be one of the most haunted locations in the Lone Star State. The ghost stories go back over 100 years at this 1861 home, and the first indication that something odd might be happening there was in 1882 when a man named T.C. Burke purchased the home. He moved his family in, and had left within a month's time; the only explanation was, "We can’t live there..."

Prominent spirits are a lady in a white dress that always takes the same path through the house when she appears, a man in the garden who is often seen striding through the Lily beds as if late for an appointment, and a mischievous entity in the den that seems to be particular fond of the ladies.

A Guided Tour through one of the historical - and haunted - homes from Jefferson`s past...

Join us for an hour-long excursion into the historic old home that has been called "the most haunted house in Jefferson".

You`ll hear the fascinating history of this 1861 house, along with the true supernatural experiences of the owners.

Walk the gardens, sit in the front parlor, and follow the footsteps of the mysterious Lady in White.

Historic Jefferson Ghost Walk

Historic Jefferson Ghost Walk

RATING

 

www.jeffersonghostwalk.com

Our tour guide seemed to be pre occupied with personal matters and not able to actually convey a good scary ghost tale. It seemed always sounding like she was reading something in a monotone voice and never broke from character.

Not only did the tour seem to, too scripted, it did not make myself or others on the actual tour feel like anything but as if we were attending a long boring lecture. But in the same vein it seemed very overly rushed. The way she rushed it seemed like she had to get the tour over quick because it was church baking night.

I would love to reassess this tour one day. But not to soon. It really made me feel talked down to.

This ghost tour it left me feeling like why did I take it in the first place. Historian Jodi Breckenridge in Jefferson Texas founded this ghost tour. She states on her web site that it is considered the most haunted small town in Texas thanks to Discover,Travel and Scifi channels. Not that anyone really considers their choices to be 100% accurate anyway.

This actual tour to me and those that were on it with me, felt that it fell rather flat. As our guide seemed to run through what seemed and overly rushed, and to overly rehearsed script.

It made us all want to go to Annie Skinners, just to deal with the real spirits and to forget the frighteningly horror of a a tour we had just been on.

But in defense of this tour i must say:

Or perhaps it was that the hype was too overrated?

Or maybe I just took the tour on a bad night for her.

Not to just say this tour is stale or the presentation is actually lacking.

Personally this tour disappointed me to the point of distraction.

Though on the other hand my daughter Mallory loves taking this great Texas ghost tour, and she recommends it highly!
