Battleship Texas (Investigated by Lone Star Spirits)
San Jacinto State Park. The ghost of an unidentified sailor has been spotted on the second deck.
Blue Light Cemetery
We have received several e-mails about this one. There are nearly half a dozen cemeteries in the Houston area that have been identified as "Blue Light Cemetery", all of them are old and suffering from vandalism. One explanation for the blue light that emanates from the tombstones is that the material used in making the markers has phosphorescent properties, causing the stones to glow in the dark.
Located on Shepherd in the old Alabama Theater. I don't have any of the juicy details yet, but I hope to have more soon.
In Humble, North of Houston. The ghost of a woman sits on patron's laps according to initial reports. Additional reports indicate that the spirit is actually that of a man who enjoys playing pool, moving chairs and shaking the beer cooler cage.
Mellie has come back to check out her building. The building has 2 sides - Neils and Mellie. The elevator has been known to malfunction and employees report feeling watched.
First Pagan Church of Houston
903 Welch St. For years this lovely house was reputed to be the scene of animal sacrifices. In 1974 the cult inhabiting it was evicted. During the subsequent renovation, one worker was struck by an unseen force, another had strange recurring nightmares, and others walked off the job because they were "spooked". Note: The cult mentioned above was not connected in any way to any known religion, polytheistic or otherwise, to the best of our knowledge. The reputed activities mentioned have no place in Wicca or any other pagan faith that Lone Star Spirits is aware of. The primary rule of Wicca (the Wiccan Rede) is, "An ye harm none, do as thou wilt," Meaning you cannot cause harm to anything-person, animal, plant, Earth.
Jefferson Davis Hospital
This unused hospital building was built on top of an old Confederate graveyard. During the excavation for the basement (the morgue), several human bones were unearthed. It is rumored to be haunted by angry Confederate soldiers, doctors, nurses and patients. The building is the property of the Harris County Hospital District and is off-limits.
Editor's personal note: I want to make something clear. This building is off-limits without express written permission from Harris County. There are a lot of so-called "paranormal investigators" out there who are sneaking in. I say to those people, you are not investigators! You are criminals! Don't you have any respect for your fellow citizens of Harris County? The damage that's been done is an unnecessary waste of tax dollars. Please stand back and let the real Paranormal Investigators work.
Julia Ideson Building
Houston Public Library System 500 McKinney St. Ghostly janitor plays music after-hours. One of his favorite rooms is the "Texas Room."

Rice University Campus. Ghostly voices and typewriters have been heard at night. In one reported incident an apparition hurled a chair at a janitor...TWICE!
Milby High School
A ghostly janitor walks the second floor and slams doors. A ghostly librarian still visits the library.
We have unconfirmed reports that merchandise falls from the shelves, and cold spots have been reported. A customer reported his name was "Frank". The store is located in the Town and Country Mall. *** Update: We received this via email- "I was browsing your site...and thought I'd provide an update. Town and Country Mall has been torn down and there is another building going up in its place, I believe it's a hotel." - Quetta/Houston, TX
Office Building 1011 (full address withheld, but if you work there, you know about it)
Ghostly footsteps, elevators that operate on their own, disembodied voices and items that move on their own have been reported. One possible cause is a man who worked there and committed suicide in the early- to mid-nineties. Suite 217 had a hard time keeping tenants, and is now used for storage (suite number removed). One employee reports that the first-floor ladies room has a stall on the far end from the door that slams open and shut violently (violently enough to send her to the second-floor ladies' room instead).
2395 Hwy 6 South, in the West Oaks area. Ava and Mad Dog make lights flicker, dishes fly, TVs turn on and off, etc., after closing. Per the General Manager, the activity is experienced day and night, and has been going on since before the death of Mad Dog (a customer who was killed in a motorcycle accident).
The room in which John F. Kennedy spent his last night on Earth has been home to cold spots, rattling doors & beds as well as balls of light. Perhaps the ghost of the late President is making himself known. Ghost dancers have been seen in the ballroom, and one of our own team members saw a lady in white pacing where the balcony USED to be. The Rice is an apartment building now, but Sambuca, the restaurant, is open to the public.
JFK may or may not have spent his last night at the Rice - I am hearing 2 different stories, but they both agree that he was there the shortly prior to his assassination in Dallas.
Slainte Irish Pub
A female homeless woman was raped and murdered in the building and her spirit roams in the pub. A silhouette of a brunette woman can may be seen behind the textured glass, near the Golden Tee game in the back of the pub. She only comes out when females employees are around and the males haven't experienced her presence. She moves objects, turns on lights and has been known to lurk in the larger, handicapped stall in the women's restroom when no one is on the second floor and keep whoever uses that stall company while they are using the facilities. It's a little creepy, but the women who work here have realized she means us no harm. www.slainteirishpub.com
Southpoint Cinema 5
It is rumored to have ghosts of three former patrons that have died there. A little girl murdered in a robbery, and two others who died of heart attacks in the same theater same row/same seat - different years. Cast members of the Rocky Horror Picture Show report hearing odd noises in the prop room and feeling like they're being watched. Editor's note: and here I was going to the Bellaire Theater all those years to watch the "Late Night Double Feature Picture Show".
Spaghetti Warehouse (Investigated by Lone Star Spirits)
Downtown Houston on Commerce. This old pharmaceutical warehouse was originally a cotton warehouse. Reportedly the owner of the pharmaceutical operation died in the elevator. Reports include equipment turning itself off and on, a white lady (supposedly his wife), utensils and dishes being thrown around the kitchen, and a general feeling of being watched.

University of Houston
Cullen Library - Aside from feeling as though they are being watched, visitors experience dimming lights, whispers, movement out of the corners of their eyes, and one student felt as though she was touched on the shoulder on the 5th floor of the Brown Wing. Some say that books have been known to spontaneously fall off the shelves, as well. The activity seems to occur around midnight and closing time. I have also heard tales of the Ezekiel Cullen Administration Building sporting a ghost or two, but do not have any solid information on that. If you know of any occurrences on campus (or anywhere in the state, for that matter), please contact us!
Wunsche Bros. Cafe 103 Midway in Spring (on the north side). "Old Man Wunsche" haunts the upstairs balcony.
