Now that we are full speed ahead toward the autumnal equinox, many of us here in Longview and Tyler, Texas are looking forward to the 'spooky season.' Some people have already gone full-on into all things Halloween--whether that's eating an entire bag of Reese's peanut butter cups that were meant for future trick-or-treaters (me), picking out Halloween costumes, watching scary movies, or pondering parties they'll be hosting in the near future.

Since times primeval, people have enjoyed scaring each other by telling ghost stories around campfires or at slumber parties. Sometimes these stories are completely made up while others are at least partially based on 'true stories.' It's these latter stories that sometimes turn into local legends. Or perhaps some of these are completely true. I suppose it's hard to say for sure.

And take note, the MOST haunted town in Texas is believed to be right here in East Texas.
