"Houston is Haunted"

Happy October! It’s finally one of the most wonderful times of the year and with that in mind, it’s time to get a little spooky. Have you ever heard something go thump in the night or a door in your Houston warehouse open by itself? These happenings could be the result of just the pipes or a draft, or they could be something more paranormal. Today on the Commercial Door Service blog, we are going to be talking about some of the most haunted places in Houston.

2309 Wichita Street

Some people like getting their hands dirty with home improvement projects. However, there are those that love working on their home. Charles Fondow was one such person that loved working on his home and worked on his home for over 31 years without ever really finishing it. After Fondow died, owners of the home reported hearing knocking and other strange noises throughout the home — almost like someone hadn’t quite given up working on their home.

Sam Houston Memorial Museum

Sam Houston is an important figure of Houston’s history and it might be said that he hasn’t left yet. At the Sam Houston Memorial Museum, there are repeated reports of footsteps and other sounds. Also, items on Houston’s old desk tend to fall off without any interference from a living person.

Spaghetti Warehouse

The building of the Spaghetti Warehouse dates back to the early 1900s and wasn’t always a family restaurant. This building was also at one time a produce store and a pharmacy. There are two ghosts that haunt the second floor and both may have died due to a dreadful fall. A man haunts the second floor and is believed to have fallen down the elevator shaft. A little girl with a crooked neck has also been seen on the second floor and is believed to have fallen down the stairs.

Martha Chapel Cemetery

If you are the ghost hunting type, Martha’s Chapel Cemetery may seem like the idea place to look for the supernatural. However, reports should deter you from setting foot in that place during the night or even the daytime. Possessions, hands coming out of the ground to pull people under, headless people, giggling, screaming, and various other signs of wraiths have been seen on the premises. Also, the ghosts tend to follow those who enter the property home.

Kingsgate Village

Don’t be a cheater or you may see the ghost of Kingsgate Village. According to legend the ghost of a young woman who caught her boyfriend cheating is said to wander the property. They say that she is looking to take revenge.
