If you're familiar with the cursed building series,  you know what I mean by cursed buildings.  For those that are new,  let me preface this, when we say cursed, it doesn't mean haunted or evil spirits, it just means this particular building or area has just had many businesses open and close.

However, with this one, it is possible that it could be haunted just because of the businesses in the building. The building was once a funeral home.

The building at 2615 Paramount Blvd was built in 1974, and in the last 20 years, it has been home to multiple different businesses.  Most of them have been churches, although short-lived in this building.

Pre-2008

This building was once home to NS Griggs and Sons Funeral Home.  Many past Amarilloians were taken care of here once they passed from this earth.

2008 - 2016 Kingdom Keys Church

After the funeral home closed, the Kindom Keys Church bought and moved into the building.  It seems fitting that a church would use the building since there was already a chapel and several rooms.

2016 - 2019 - Accelerate Church

Once Kindom Keys Church moved out of the building Accerlate Church moved into the property.  Again, after it was converted to a church, it makes sense that another church would move into the building.  The last service Accelerate Church had in the building was on June 12, 2019.  They are currently located at 4400 Crockett

May 2023 - Potter's House Christian Fellowship Church

The building was purchased by another church.  Potter's House hosted its first service on October 21, 2023, the delay was due to all the flooding that occurred during the rains of June 2023.  Potter's House is a part of over 3000+ churches across the world.  They are still currently occupying the building today.

If you're curious as to what the building looks like on the inside, you can visit the current church or check out this video:

Amarillo's Cursed Buildings – Historic Route 66, 2813 SW 6th

There are some places around town that just can't seem to stay in business for very long. This is one of them.

The address of the cursed building is 2813 SW 6th Street. This building was originally built in 1930. This place was originally a service station. I'm sure in the heydays of Rt. 66, this place was the place to stop to get your car serviced. However, in the last 15 years, this building has seen many different faces.

Amarillo Cursed Buildings - 715 S. Polk

Polk Street is a great place to spend an evening. However, over the years, Polk Street has seen many businesses come and go. One of these buildings is at 715 S. Polk. It has been many things over the years, mainly bars, but it seems as soon as one moves in, it moves right out.

So what all has been in there? Let's take a look back at 715 S. Polk.

This building was originally built in 1915, it was known as The Hollywood.
