Ghosts of Killeen, Texas by
Call Number: F 386 D862 1982
Publication Date: 2015-06-04
Killeen and the surrounding area has long been known by paranormal researchers and ghost hunters as a habitat for haunts; a virtual Mecca for the paranormal. Native American burial grounds, knife and gunfights, bank robberies, stage holdups, men and women died many horrible and torturous violent deaths over the centuries in this central Texas community. Most of them lie buried in peace. But not all. This book is no means a full and complete tally of all of the haunted locations within the area. More tales come to light all of the time as more and more witnesses come forward. Witnesses who were embarrassed and thought no one would believe their experiences: or thought that people would mock or ridicule them. The chapters within will reveal some of the more haunted locations that have been identified in and around the City of Killeen. Stories of hauntings that were taken from the very lips of witnesses. Witnesses whose voices still quivered in fear, remembering what they had seen, heard, and even felt.
More Ghost Towns of Texas by
Call Number: F 392 .B34 T8 1966
Publication Date: 2003-09-02
There is something romantic yet harshly concrete about an abandoned town. Dreams, conflicts, and losses still haunt what remains, so it?s no wonder we call these locales ?ghost towns.? A companion volume to his Ghost Towns of Texas, T. Lindsay Baker?s More Ghost Towns of Texas provides readers with histories, maps, and detailed directions to the most interesting ghost towns in Texas not already covered in the first volume. The ninety-four towns described in this book range from American Indian sites abandoned prior to the arrival of Europeans to towns abandoned within the past decade. Baker?s own recent photographs of the towns are complemented by historic photographs of more prosperous times. Many of these locations have never before appeared in any ghost town guide. Based on hundreds of miles of travel and fieldwork in abandoned towns all across Texas, More Ghost Towns of Texas lists sites throughout the state so that people from anywhere in the state can reach a ghost town in a day?s trip.
