The Haunted Hotel
Galveston, Texas Galvez Hotel is a beautiful place to see and stay at. During the early 1900’s it was dubbed “The Playground of the Southwest”. It was primarily visited and utilized by the rich and elite. But, only 11 years after it was built a monster hurricane killed 6,000 plus residents of the island. The location now sits on top of what used to be the beach hotel. This included areas like the pagoda bath house and the electric pavilion.
When you have 6,000 people die in such a terrible way, there’s no wonder that a place like this is going to be so haunted! Since the time of the tragedy, countless guests have reported some odd things. Guests have seen things move, heard disembodied voices, and have seen spectral visitors. Some guests have even caught some pretty good evps, and photographs.
