Is Texas more haunted than any other state? Paranormal researcher and author Mitchel Whitington thinks the answer might be yes. "Settlers came to seek their fortunes, and there were successes and failures, joys and sorrows,” he says. “I think that a lot of those impressions are still around, and bring spirit-visitors from the other side." Intrigued travelers can get a glimpse of "the other side" at the sites of haunted Texas. Just remember to be respectful—after all, ghosts were people, too!
