Big Woods Cemetery - HAUNTED Cemetery in Louisiana
This was one of my favorite cemeteries I've been to. As I was passing through Louisiana, I heard of a few spooky stories of this place. James W. Bryan donated 14 acres of land to create the Big Woods Cemetery in 1827. The earliest grave here dates back to 1844, and the cemetery is still in use today. Stories of hauntings have been swirling around for decades. It appears that some who have been laid to rest here are unable to rest in peace and continue to roam the cemetery grounds. One spooky legend tells of a shadowy figure at the gate. If you see it pass in front of you, it is a warning not to go in any further. Visitors report hearing disembodied voices and capturing strange, glowing orbs in photographs. Others have experienced unexplained failures in electrical devices. Big Woods Cemetery is located at 3925 Big Woods Cemetery Rd., Vinton, LA 70668. Keep in mind that while this is a public area, the cemetery closes at dusk and it is illegal to enter after hours. Please be respect

About the village of Cochise, Arizona

Bilbo Cemetery 1840 - Lake Charles, Louisiana
As I was staying in Lake Charles, LA. I read up on this old historic cemetery. Once I got there it seemed to be forgotten. Established April 8, 1840 Bilbo Cemetery is listed on the National Historic Registry and is the final resting place of the “Father of Lake Charles,” John Jacob Ryan. Although the cemetery appears to be slowly sinking into the lake, it houses around 20 crypts that hold the remains of war veterans dating back to the early 19th-century. There are also a few statues of children located around the cemetery, giving the entire location an extra boost of creepiness. Millennium Statue of Jesus Christ is located in Bilbo Cemetery on North Lakeshore Drive. The 15 ft. bronze statue on an 8 ft. base stands 23 ft. tall over the resting places of Lake Charles’ earliest and most famous settlers. The statue was sculpted by Janie Stine LaCroix, a descendant of Jacob Ryan, Jr., the “Father of Lake Charles,” who is buried in Bilbo.

Old Frio Town - Ghost Town in Texas - Western Era
FRIO TOWN, TX. Frio Town, originally known as Frio City, was a frontier community off Farm Road 140 immediately south of the Presidio Crossing of the Frio River, sixteen miles northwest of Pearsall in northwest Frio County. The town was laid out by A. L. Odin in 1871. The first mail was delivered to the community on horseback from Benton City; later it arrived from San Antonio by stage. Frio City was a "cowboy capital" and outpost cultural center during the 1870s. Estimates of its population in the early 1880s reach as high as 1,500.
Friedrich Refrigerators - San Antonio, Texas
Friedrich Refrigerators in 1925 and lasted until 1990 when increased competition from China made its operation unfeasible and the Friedrich Refrigerators company moved their operations to Monterrey, Mexico. It languished until 1999 when some developers bought it out and decided to convert it into market-rate apartments. A commission declared the building of historical interest, which meant that no one could tear it down. But in this video I found some crazy stuff! Enjoy!
Lone Star Brewery - San Antonio, Texas
The establishment of the Lone Star Brewery in 1940 was part of an extended history of commercial brewing in San Antonio that began with William A. Menger’s Western Brewery in 1855. By 1918, the company was selling as many as 65,000 barrels of their lager beer every year throughout Texas and the nation. It now sits abandoned and demolished. The city has plans to build something for the community there.
Fort Tejon Historic Park
Fort Tejon is a former United States Army outpost which was intermittently active from June 24, 1854 until September 11, 1864. The fort's mission was to suppress stock rustling and protect settlers from attacks by Native American tribes. It's located in the Grapevine Canyon along the interstate 5 highway, and comes just before you head over to the Tejon Outlet. On our visit, the park was nearly deserted and none of the buildings were open so we had to look through the windows. It really felt like we transported back in time to the mid 19th century. I would like to visit again in the future when the buildings are opened up to the general public.
