This may not be a typical Halloween season with all the pandemic stuff going on but, it is always the best time of the year for ghost hunting.

El Paso has been around a long time. It was first settled around 1598 but was not officially christened El Paso until 1851. Evidence of human activity in the area goes back even further, showing human activity as much as 10 - 12 thousand years ago. (Wikipedia)

With that much time under its belt, El Paso has seen a lot of history, much of it violent and is considered one of the most haunted cities in the United States.

Amateur ghost hunters can poke around all kinds of El Paso locations looking for paranormal activities such as:

There are plenty of other places to ghost hunt in, those are just a few "starter" ideas for you. Here are a few more extremely haunted locations to visit but, be aware that these places require special permission to enter and/or snoop around in.

The Paso Del Norte Hotel (Formerly The Camino Real)

I'm a history buff, particularly when it comes to the "wild" west of the 1800s, and there are plenty of bloody, western stories here. With each providing its own supernatural tale.

The site of the 4 dead in 5 gunfight downtown on El Paso Street for example or, the building that was once the old Wig-Wam saloon.

That building is a great place to start as it has a museum and is also the home of the Paso Del Norte Paranormal Society which holds regular tours of many haunted locations around the area.
