Central Texas History and Legends

Central Texas has a wild past filled with witches, outlaws, eccentric writers, horse thieves, Indian wars, unscrupulous newspaper men, and haunted cemeteries. Since hauntings and history usually go hand-in-hand, the following pages focus not only on Central Texas ghost stories, but highlight some of the area's historic places.


Also, if you are interested in Waco's spooky history, I encourage you to pick up the book, Cotton Bales, Goat Men and Witches by Waco author, Brad Turner.
