Amarillo, Texas has its fair share of haunted hospitals, hotels, houses; you name it. Locals are familiar with St. Anthony's Hospital , the Ranchotel , and the Herring Hotel . Here are some other abandoned places in Amarillo that just might not be so abandoned.

Garvey Grain

The few comments on this video (which is nothing but a slideshow of photos taken inside of the building) mention this place being haunted. The photos are actually pretty interesting. Leave the video on mute and skip the music. It sounds like something you would hear at a holistic center waiting for an organic goat cheese massage...or something.

Old Town Apartments

Here's one for everyone hoping for something a little more on the "spooky" side. This video is of a paranormal investigation being conducted at the abandoned Old Town Apartments. They claim to have captured several EVPs, and there's a lot of circles drawn on photos. You be the judge on just what is being circled.

Summit Elementary School

There's an interview at the beginning of the video, but after that there are some really good shots of the exterior of Summit Elementary . There were several videos that were supposedly of Summit, but the quality was so bad that there wasn't much to see. Also, in the comments it is mentioned that the building is now a church. This revelation (no pun intended) was given by someone who claims they cleared it of spirits. All in the video's comment section.

Knights Inn Motel

Not sure if this place is supposedly haunted or not, but it is most definitely abandoned. At least, for the most part. One of the "cooler" parts of the video is when a list of rules is discovered written on a wall.

Maybe it's no so abandoned after all?

Herring Hotel

Instead of being recorded on someone's shaky cellphone, this one was actually done by a crew. They're guided through the building, which is nice. There's a little bit of history given, and they get a lot of good footage.

101.9 The Bull

Is The Worley Hospital In Pampa Really Haunted?

  • Share on Facebook
  • Share on Twitter

Not too long ago, I found myself taking a drive out to Pampa, Texas last night. You know, just one of those "why the heck not?" impulses to just hit the road. I mean really, why the heck not? Pampa is less than an hour away, I had never been there, and I had nothing else to do.

I arrived. I found the place to be full of that small-town charm. I had myself a nice time exploring. But before I left, I found myself staring down a local legend at the corner of Somerville and Francis.

Worley Hospital.

haunted hospitals in amarillo texas

The Worley Hospital

At first glance, you can see what this building used to be. The detail work on the front tells me that time and effort was put into the design. I bet that when it opened in 1928 it must have been quite the event.

Worley Hospital was the vision of Phoebe Worley, who thought that the citizens of Pampa should have their own hospital instead of making the drive to Amarillo. The hospital served Pampa for decades before revenue shortages forced its closure in the 1970s. The beautiful building has been empty ever since--minus the occasional trespasser, pigeon and rodent occupants.

So Is It Haunted?

I'm not the expert on hauntings and the spirit world but there is just a general feeling of uneasiness you can feel just being on the grounds outside. And before you ask,  no I didn't go in.

Honestly, buildings like this that have been abandoned this long are generally off my list of places to explore. Looking into the windows, you see just what one would expect: a building that has been abandoned for 40 years in a state of decay.

A few folks have been inside to check it out

A few years back one of our former on air hosts here in the building checked the place out even going so far as to do a live broadcast. While there were some unexplained events that occurred, nothing definitive was found.

The Ghost Hunters were also able to visit the location a few years ago Mustafa Gatollori even spoke about the Season 1 episode earlier this year

There is no doubt that one of the current owners, Carol Peet, would like to put the "haunted" gossip surrounding the Worley to rest. Since acquiring the historic building in 2002, she has consistently stated that she has been in the building numerous times with no incidents.

Peet has grand plans for the revival of the Worley. Not as a hospital, but as a ministry center with the purpose of helping vulnerable individuals learn life skills. Peet has pushed for the ministry center for years, stymied by funding issues. So, for now the Worley Hospital building sprawls along the landscape in eternal silence, its secrets and spirits shimmering with life within.

Good Ol' Sixth Street Strikes Again

You don't have to be in Amarillo long before you hear about all of the haunted places on Sixth Street. There's The Nat, and 6th Street Massacre, among others.

This video was made about an investigation that was done on Sixth Street in an undisclosed building. All we're given is that it is near the train tracks.

Disembodied voices your thing? You'll love this. Like blurry images that look somewhat similar to a police sketch of D.B. Cooper? You'll find it in the above video.

Seriously, I swear I can see old D.B. Cooper in one of the zoomed in images of a "face." Maybe Sixth Street is where he wound up after jumping from that plane.

Amarillo Musician Loses Everything In Heartbreaking Holiday House Fire

Amarillo's LARGEST Haunted House!

Everybody knows that Amarillo Scaregrounds is the areas largest and longest running haunted attraction.  But do you know our history?  Joey and Vona Adams have long loved Halloween and everything spooky.  Before opening their original haunted attraction in 1998 they had a short career as school carnival haunted house operators.  It turns out an elementary school carnival haunted house can be too scary…  They would also decorate their home extensively for one night of scary fun each year, which, would inevitably cause traffic jams throughout their neighborhood as seemingly half the city would show up to see the spectacle.  Then after they had their fun it was time to tear down and store everything until the next year.  The Adams family was one of the few families that can boost of more coffins in their garage than cars. 

When their children graduated from High School and moved out Joey and Vona suddenly found themselves with a lot of free time, and so their first professional haunted attraction, Terror on 10th, was born.  For the next three years Terror on 10th was setup in the Party Palace Event Room, but it had to be torn down entirely to make room for other events.  So Terror on 10th was moved to the 1701 SE 10th where it would stay for several years.  This location allowed the majority of the haunt to stay up year round while sections would be torn down and redesigned.  With only 6000 sq/ft they quickly outgrew the inside of the building and began using the 3000 sq/ft fenced in yard.  In 2009 Joey and Vona opened their second haunted attraction in conjunction with Terror on 10th.  Dark Carnival was an outdoor haunt that utilized roughly 3000 sq/ft of parking area as well as the fenced yard.  It also gave us the opportunity stretch our haunt legs and offer 2 different styles of haunt. 

After two years of having Terror on 10th and Dark Carnival at the same location we once again needed more space.  After much searching Joey and Vona purchased 2736 SW 10th, which offered more than 50,000 sq/ft of potential usable space.  Amarillo Scaregrounds began operations in 2011 and originally held two haunts: Insanitarium - a mental hospital overrun with zombies; and Terror - a nod to our origins of various phobias.  Since that first season we’ve had time to create more attractions: The Basement - an industrial area that houses all the reason you stayed out of the cellar as a kid; B-Trail - our 2500 sq/ft unmanned haunted walk through; Xcape Room Village - a collection of 5 minute escape games; Blackout (retired); Zombie Apocalypse Training (retired); Axe Slingers Society (retired)  In addition to the multiple attractions Amarillo Scaregrounds also offers a snack bar with a large patio for patrons to relax in between attractions, an authentic graveyard with real tombstones and crypts, and all season long Amarillo Scaregrounds has a graveside funeral where you can relax with other mourners.  So if it’s October and you have some time to kill come hang with us.

Traveling through american history, destinations & legends since 2003., haunted natatorium in amarillo, texas.

Amarillo Texas Natatorium by Kathy Alexander.

Amarillo Texas Natatorium by Kathy Alexander.

Old Route 66 through Sixth Street in Amarillo , Texas , is home to the Natatorium, familiarly called “The Nat,” and according to locals, a few unearthly spirits as well. This area, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has been fashionably restored to an antique district full of collectibles, boutiques, and street-side cafes.

“Natatorium” is an old-fashioned word for an indoor swimming pool, and when this building opened in July 1922, that’s precisely what it housed. However, in 1926, J.D. Tucker purchased the pool building and turned it into a dance palace. Covering the pool over with a fine wooden dance floor, the Nat Ballroom began to cater to the flappers of the Roaring ’20s.

The Great Depression brought many changes to the nation, and the “Nat” offered various promotions to entice guests to the ballroom. Suffering through this period, the Nat was bought by Harry Badger in the early 1930s. In 1935 he added the castle-like façade and the Nat Café, which provided an entrance to the dance floor from Route 66 and renamed the business The Nat Dine and Dance Palace.

Ushering in the Big Band Era, the Nat had one of the finest dance floors in the Southwest , as groups such as Tommy Dorsey, Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, and Guy Lombardo entertained its many guests. With the advent of Rock “N’ Roll, the Nat continued to entertain with Little Richard, Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly, and the Crickets. At its prime, the ballroom employed a staff of 52 people to help produce its entertainment events and serve the many happy customers of the Nat. Many old-timers who learned to swim at the Nat would later recall the fabulous Friday night dances they attended during its glory days.

Several years ago, when the Nat was purchased and renovated for an Antique Mall, owners and guests would notice cold spots upon entering the upstairs rooms, once utilized as a gambling hall. On other occasions, strange noises would be heard when no one was there, and the owner would arrive to find the furniture rearranged during the night. According to one psychic, a female apparition who once spent many hours in the gambling hall appears in a white dress with a red stain on the bodice. According to the legend, the lady was having a grand time one evening when another patron spilled red wine down her dress. Obviously, she had so much fun that she is reluctant to leave.

Tommy Dorsy Band

Tommy Dorsey Band

The ballroom floor is said to also be popular with the spirits. When bands still play at the Nat, a ghostly couple can often be seen gliding along its hardwood floors. In 1996, the Nat conducted an all-night ghost investigation with video cameras and tape recorders. Though the investigators had many difficulties with the cameras, as they mysteriously shut themselves off, they did obtain a voice recording of a drum playing solo in the background and the sounds of a woman singing.

Another reminder that the spirits are seemingly unwilling to give up the splendor of the past is on the outside wall of the building. Legend has it that although it was first painted over in 1942, and several times since then, the words “Monty McGee and His Orchestra” continue to bleed continuously.

In 1994, the Nat was placed in the National Register of Historic Places and became a Texas Historical Landmark in 1995. It continued to host big-name bands for a while, including The Dixie Chicks, Cooder Graw, and Joe Ely. Under new owners, the building was restored and renovated and continues as an Antique Mall, which still occasionally hosts bands and hopes to include a cafe and movie screen someday. For more news on the Amarillo Natatorium, see our friends at Route 66 News .

The Nat, a prime example of whimsical roadway architecture, is located at 6th and Georgia on old Route 66 in Amarillo , Texas .

What are the most haunted places in Texas?

San Antonio's Menger Hotel is considered a hot spot for hauntings.

October is more than halfway over, which means spooky season is in full swing. You can find a haunted house or pumpkin patch in just about every city in Texas, but what about real hauntings in the Lone Star State?

From abandoned hospitals to historic hotels, Texas has its fair share of haunted locations. Kristina Downs, director of the Texas Folklore Society and an assistant professor at Tarleton State University, joined the Standard to tell listeners about the most spine-chilling sites. Listen to the interview above or read the transcript below.

This transcript has been lightly edited for clarity:

Texas Standard: When someone asks you about top haunted locations in Texas, what sites come to mind?

Kristina Downs: One that definitely comes to mind is the Menger Hotel, which is in San Antonio. It’s right downtown near the Alamo. It opened in 1859 and had a colorful history, and that’s led to some colorful hauntings.

What’s so spooky about it? It looks grand and beautiful. 

It is absolutely beautiful. It was used as a hospital during the Civil War, which would have led to a lot of deaths there. There was also a fire there in 1924, which didn’t result in any fatalities, but added to the traumatic history.

There was a chambermaid named Sallie White who was murdered in the lobby of the hotel by her husband. According to the story, she actually ran to the hotel trying to get away from him, and he shot her in the lobby. The owner of the hotel paid for her funeral. Maybe that shows what a devoted employee she was, because she still is seen in the hotel folding laundry, carrying linens around – still very much acting as she would have as a chambermaid.

 The Menger Hotel in 1865.

What other stories have you heard from the Menger? 

The famous Texas figure, Richard King, of the King Ranch, also died there in 1885. He’s still seen around the hotel. Apparently, it was his favorite hotel. He asked to be taken there as he knew he was at the end of his life.

Teddy Roosevelt also hangs out at the Menger Hotel in the bar. He apparently went there to recruit for the Rough Riders and will still strike up conversations with people in the hotel bar, trying to recruit them to join the Rough Riders.

Those are great stories. Hit us with some more of these haunted tales.

Close to where I am in Erath County, we have McDow Hole, which is connected with Green Creek as a deep water hole. There’s a lot of different stories about pioneer families being murdered there.

There was one woman in particular, Jenny Papworth, whose murder was never solved. In fact her body was never found – nor was that of her infant child. Her spirit is said to appear beside the train tracks near the hole. When the railroad was more active, she would be seen standing by the railroad holding her baby.

These things take on a life of their own, don’t they?

They absolutely do.

Why do you think that is? Is Texas unique in any way, or is this universal – the phenomenon of ghosts lingering long after their human personages are gone? 

I don’t think we’re unique. You have those stories everywhere, but they say everything is bigger in Texas. I think that definitely applies to our ghost stories.

Texans are also storytellers by nature. You know, we love to share stories. I think that leads also to these stories spreading and being told. The more they spread, the more they can get embellished or start to take on new characteristics.

A lot of listeners are in the mood to get spooked. Do you have another one that you can share with us?

In Mineral Wells, there’s Hill House , which claims to be the most haunted house in Texas. It was a brothel and a bootlegging operation back when Mineral Wells was at its height. There’s been several deaths on the property, and you can actually go there and do ghost hunting. You can book a tour.

People get scratched. They hear voices. There’s videos you can find online of doors unlocking by themselves, banging noises, any of those kinds of things.

There’s got to be some truth underlying this somewhere, right? It’s not as if people are making these stories up. There must have been some noise, some visual indication that led people to think that they were seeing some paranormal phenomenon, no?

I absolutely think that there’s a truth to these stories, you know? I’ve had some spooky experiences myself in pretty mundane locations. But I think that sometimes when you’re looking for things, you might be more likely to notice them. It’s not even necessarily that you’re imagining things – maybe these things are happening all the time, and we are more likely to notice it if we know that it’s a place that’s haunted.

These older houses… Sure, they can have creaks and things like that that just happen in older buildings. But I think sometimes there are things that we don’t understand yet.

As director of the Texas Folklore Society, how do you interpret some of these ghost stories on a personal level? Do you tend to think of them as fiction or do you tend to put a little bit more fact into the scale?

Something one of my folklore professors once told me is that there’s truth in all stories. So, I don’t think my job as a folklorist is to try to figure out, ‘okay, is this paranormal?’ but to figure out why people are telling these stories. What can I learn about people, about their community, from listening to the stories they tell? What can those tell me about their beliefs?

» RELATED:  For the love of fear: Why some indulge in horrors and frights

Why do you think that we are so interested in these kinds of spooky stories? 

You know, they do surveys every so often that show that, even as we’re very scientifically educated as a society, about three quarters of Americans still believe in some kind of supernatural thing. I think we can get a little bit removed from that sense of wonder in our everyday lives, because everything is so rational.

There’s nothing wrong with that; I fully believe in science and rationality. Sometimes, we need something that’s a little bit more, something that goes beyond that – that sense of wonder. I think the scary stories give us some of that. There’s a thrill to hearing a story that makes your spine shiver and your hair stand on end, which I think we all enjoy.
