Why is Dallas So Haunted?

Like all states in our country, Dallas was first inhabited by Native Americans. In the early 18th century, the Spanish moved in and claimed the land. Then, the French came in and claimed the land. Throughout Dallas’s history, six flags have been flown over the city – France, Spain, Mexico, the Confederate flag, and the flag of the United States. 

 

The area remained governed by the Spanish until 1821 and gained its independence from Mexico in 1836. This formed the Republic of Texas. In 1841 Tennessee attorney John Neely Bryan, accompanied by his dog Tubby and a Cherokee he called Ned, put a steak atop a bluff claiming the site. Two years later, he established the town of Dallas.

The most infamous piece of Dallas history is the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald. The President’s motorcade drove through downtown Dallas on Elm Street. From a building’s second-story window, Oswald shot at the President fatally wounding him. President Kennedy was pronounced dead thirty minutes later at Dallas Parkland Memorial. Hundreds witnessed the horrific event firsthand while thousands more watched in horror from home on the television. 

Dallas has a trying and often treacherous history. Hostile Indians, prejudices, wars, and murders all paved way to the Lone Star state.



Why should you tour with us?

Icon
You want to learn more about this historical city

Dallas is just one of those cities that people can’t get enough of. From The Real Housewives to the show Dallas, there are numerous shows based around this beautiful city. The assassination of President Kennedy is still referenced in pop culture and in some of today’s most popular series. You’ve seen all that, so what now? Now, join us on a Dallas ghost tour you'll never forget!

Icon
You want to do something different than the typical "touristy" things

If you’re new to Dallas, you know there’s quite a bit to take in. No matter the size of your group or who’s in it, there’s something for everyone in this thriving metropolis. From theme parks to unique shopping, to fine dining and event centers, there’s always something to do here. But what if you’ve done it all? If you’re looking for something different that will leave you wanting more, Dallas Ghost Tour is it!

Icon
You're a skeptic

Not everyone believes in the afterlife. That’s OK! Even if you think the thought of spirits is silly, there’s still plenty for you on this tour. You’ll learn why the area was developed, the evolution of downtown Dallas, and who played integral roles in its creation and its infamy. Even if you’re not a believer, the places you’ll see and the stories you’ll hear will at the very least get your gears turning.

Icon
You want to be inspired

The shows that are based on this city are great but they don’t really dig deep into the creation of it. Maybe you’re ready to start that book or screenplay about the dark and tragic stories behind the heart of Dallas. This is a great place to start! If stories are what you’re after and some inspiration to bring them to life on other platforms, Dallas Ghost Tour makes the perfect launching point.

Icon
You need an activity to entertain the whole family

As tragic and dark as these tales are, they’re told with the family in mind. Because at the end of the day, our goal is to provide you with a great time and a memorable experience. Your tour through downtown Dallas will include visits to some poignant landmarks and the spirits that inhabit them. They’re creepy enough to give you chills but tame enough to keep you coming back to this beautiful side of the world.

You want to experience an authentic ghost tour

There’s nothing more interesting than a story that almost sounds too incredible to be true, but that’s exactly what you’ll hear. And the best part is, they’re all true! Our team does a deep dive into each location and conducts copious amounts of research to ensure the guides are able to bring the most factual, entertaining, and chilling stories to life. But don’t worry! All stories are told with families in mind.

THE MOST HAUNTED PLACES IN DALLAS, TX

Grassy Knoll

Most famously known as the location of the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963, the Grassy Knoll is an infamous and eerie location. The spot’s history is palpable, with a distinct white ‘X’ marking exactly where the President’s assassination occurred. Medical examiners pronounced John F. Kennedy dead just thirty minutes after the shooting, solidifying the location’s legacy forever.

Sixth Floor Museum

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza also relates to the infamous assassination of John F. Kennedy. Within the museum on the sixth floor of the Dallas County Administration Building, you can stand at the very spot where Lee Harvey Oswald shot and killed the President. A mixture of historical photographs and artifacts helps to bring this chilling spot to life.

John Neely Cabin

Among the bustling streets of metropolitan Dallas sits a lone log cabin. It stands out from its surroundings enormously, and you would be forgiven for wondering why in the world it remained. The reason is that this cabin is the first house to have ever existed in Dallas. Originally built by John Neely Bryan in the early 1840s, the cabin has been sealed for decades but still enjoys frequent visitors. It’s in Dealey Plaza, not far from JFK’s memorial, where murderous events have stained the plaza for over 150 years.
