Why is Fort Worth So Haunted?

Gunslingers, gangsters, and cowboys haunt the modern corridors of Forth Worth, lingering reminders of the city’s violent outlaw past. Once home to Hell’s Half Acre, the most lewd and violent red-light district in the West until 1917, Fort Worth has just as many poltergeists as it does saloons and rodeos. Since the 1870s, the city gained a reputation for being one of the most infamous and rowdy cowtowns in all of the Lone Star State.

Criminal activity has prevailed in Forth Worth for as long as the brothels have invited thirsty and power-hungry outlaws. Unknown criminals like Luke Lamar Short and Sam Bass engaged in shootouts and high noon in Fort Worth’s storybook Wild West Days. Later on, Bonnie and Clyde were attracted to Fort Worth’s lawless nature during the Great Depression. Something about the untamed nature of Texas brought these gunslingers here and forever kept them in the afterlife.

Evil sometimes outweighed good in the dusty streets of early Fort Worth and left bloody waves of otherworldly energy in its wake. As a prominent cow town, rodeos became just as common as gambling houses and cattle yards. Rodeo stars and workers of the stockyards engaged in much of the same lawless activity as their criminal counterparts. Some of them, like the fearless rodeo cowboy C.D. Junior Colwell, took their own lives due to this heinous lifestyle.

Hiding amongst the breweries, restaurants, and shops of the Stockyards, where thousands of cattle a day were once driven in and out of the city, are the ghosts of Fort Worth’s haunted history. There is much to see and learn in a town that attracts the unknown and unusual. Book your spot on a Fort Worth ghost tour with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours to experience it yourself!

Why should you tour with us?

Icon
You love westerns and want to experience the real Wild West.

No matter if they’re old or new, if you love westerns chances are you love it all. Westerns on television are a good time, but nothing compares to hearing true stories of the real Wild West in person and taking in the sites where these events occurred. Fort Worth was and continues to be the center of all the action when it comes to cowboys, cattle, and western culture.

The stories you’ll hear will paint a picture of what it meant to be a real gunslinger and lawbreaker in such a primitive time. While society may have evolved, the souls of outlaws left behind are stuck, doomed to roam the very place they met their brutal end.

Icon
You need your ghost fix.

Cowtown Ghosts has a tale for every type of haunting imaginable. Every building has experienced its own type of tragedy, trapping souls that were once from all walks of life. From residual to intelligent, poltergeists and even demonic, those in the afterlife almost outnumber the living. Keep your cameras ready, because these spirits have been known to make their presence known at a moment’s notice.

Icon
You love learning about historic buildings…especially if they’re haunted.

So much of Texas is developed around historical monuments. These buildings date back as far as the early 1800s, and Fort Worth is home to several of them. If you love learning about the history of buildings from yesteryear, you’re in the right place. We’ll take you on a stroll through time where you’ll hear stories of a merciless era where cowboys and gangsters ruled the roads and took no prisoners. These buildings have plenty of history and Fort Worth Ghost Tours is where you’ll hear all about it.

Icon
You want to try and catch a glimpse of someone famous…dead or alive.

Will you see someone living and famous? We can’t be sure. Will you see someone who was once living, both famous and infamous? Now THAT’S a possibility. The haunted history in Fort Worth is deep and includes some notable characters you’ve probably heard about such as the star-crossed lovers Bonnie and Clyde and the Duke himself, Mr. John Wayne. Both are known to make appearances in the buildings you’ll visit, so keep your eyes peeled and your cameras ready.

Icon
You’re looking for something fun and unique to do with the family.

These days it can be hard to tear our kids away from their screens. A tour with Fort Worth Ghost Tours just might be the key. In addition to being educational, this tour is entertaining and engaging in a way you can’t experience on a phone. We’ll keep you and your family moving and on your toes every step of the tour, rendering everyone’s phone nothing more than a camera to capture the unexplained.

Icon
You’re in town for work and need to unwind and you’ve already been to the rodeo.

Fort Worth is big for business trips. If that’s what brought you to our part of the world and you’re in need of a break, take a time out with Fort Worth Ghost Tours. The entire tour is by foot which is a great stress reliever, and the stories you’ll hear will take you out of the business world and into another time that will take your mind off of those big meetings for a while. Shut off your computer, grab your walking shoes, and get ready to have a good time!
