Most Haunted Places In Texas – Top 10
Ghost hunters will love some of these places to possibly capture a little paranormal action. The Grove in Jefferson, Texas, which is only an hour's drive from Texarkana, is included in this list of the "Top 10 Most Haunted Places In Texas."
Today's technology has brought almost everyone closer to being the "ghost hunter" you've always wanted to be, just like the one's on TV.
Honestly, I'm not sure how the folks in the video below came up with this top 10 list and whether #1 is more scarier than #10. The British electronic voice is irritating as well, not because it's British, it's just very poorly done and hard to follow. At times it fades in and out and the pronunciations of the Texas names are not good. But it's a start.
