KUHF Reporter Jack Williams takes a tour of Houston’s haunted hot spots.

At more than 160 years old, Houston is a city with a lot of history, and some say more than a few ghosts and spirits. KUHF’s Jack Williams took a tour of the city’s most haunted destinations recently and reported on what he saw.

The trip was courtesy of High Spirits Tours and co-owners Scott Arthur, a local radio personality, and Sandy Webb, a former Hollywood stunt woman. Visitors see allegedly haunted bars and restaurants, including the Hofbrau Steak House on North Shepherd, La Carafe, a bar built in 1847 and The Spaghetti Warehouse, the city’s most haunted building according to Arthur and Webb.

Other stops include Founder’s Cemetery, Cramer’s Tree and the old Jefferson Davis Hospital northwest of downtown. Each person on the three-hour tour is given an Electro Magnetic Field meter, known at an EMF meter, a device that registers electromagnetic energy.

The High Spirits Tour departs every Friday and Saturday night from the Allen Parkway Inn. For more information, call 713-22-HAUNT or e-mail at spirithaunting@aol.com.
