Danielle Williams, City of Victoria Main Street Program director, says many residents have reached out to her with similar stories. Their stories are about historic structures in downtown Victoria, ranging from unexplained sights and sounds to a simple feeling of being watched.

Currently, the Main Street Program is inviting Victoria residents to share stories about their personal paranormal experiences. The stories will be put together into a map that residents and visitors can use to take a self-guided tour of haunted places downtown.

“Downtown is where Victoria began, and it’s full of history,” Williams said. “Generations of Victorians have lived and died here, and some are even buried in Memorial Park. We wanted to give residents a way to share their experiences with others who may want to go looking for ghosts or simply gain a fresh perspective on the history of Victoria’s downtown.”

You can submit your stories at www.victoriatx.gov/ghost-stories by Aug. 31. Williams anticipates having the map ready in time for the Halloween season.
