Why is El Paso So Haunted?

El Paso Del Notre was once the largest settlement in the Spanish colonial territory of New Mexico. But, after a vicious battle for independence, Mexico laid its claim on the town. Still, eager Americans had set their eyes on it as well and left a trail of violence in their wake. This continued when the Civil War stretched its destructive hand toward the furthest boundaries of the country.

El Paso’s place as one of the most lawless and violent settlements in the West in the late 1800s invited some despicable characters whose names are still alive today. The spirit of outlaws like John Wesley Hardin has been seen wandering in front of El Paso City Hall, seeking vengeance against the sheriff who took his life.

Tales of the Wild West aren’t the only thing making El Paso the most haunted city in West Texas. The harsh realities of the desert did not prevent the city from flourishing. Electricity lit up the night sky, and glorious hotels, brothels, and saloons blossomed. However, the carnage of Western life did not cease. Unearthly entities now terrifyingly roam these hotels and former dens of sin.

The macabre and malicious have been attracted to El Paso since its earliest days. When the city emerged into modern times, it did its best to leave its murderous past behind. But old habits die hard in a city so steeped in history. Book your El Paso ghost tour with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours to hear all about it! You’ll learn everything you need to know about El Paso’s most haunted locations.
