The building where Aliviane sits today which used to be the old Tigua Hospital on North Loop, is certainly haunted. I would be sitting at my desk and would see someone entering the outer office, but when I would call or go see, there was no one. Other employees would hear heavy breathing as if someone was on a ventilator. One employee saw a man walking down the hall and when he followed him, the man walked right through a wall and disappeared. Everyone hated to stay and work late unless there were other employees in the building. On several occasions I found myself locked up in my section of the building and no one would hear me calling out for help. Too many strange things happening, for the building not to be haunted. Afterall it was a hospital where hundreds of people died there.

The building for the new University Behavioral Health Center is haunted. This building has been several different types of hospitals and has several ghosts hauting the facility.

Is this the same building that once housed Southwestern General Hospital on Cotton? I remember doing rounds with my dad as a kid and always feeling uneasy about that place. Either way, it makes an interesting location for a Hollywood Horror Flick. Place looks like an asylum and gives me the creeps!

It is said that there used to be train tracks there and children were killed during that time. Today you put baby powder the bumper, leave your car on nuetral at the bottom of the road and the car starts rolling UPhill. Look at the bumper and again and you will see little handprints.....

It's on Thunderbird opposite of Shadow Mountain. Tried it, really unimpressed. it's supposedly a hoax. Maybe other people had different experiences. Train tracks never were built in that area.

I haven't heard any ghost stories about Hillcrest Middle School, but I did hear ghost stories about the old Hillcrest Junior High which burned downed in the 90's. There were talks about hearing footsteps late in the night or feeling someone tap you on the shoulder. The new Hillcrest Middle school is built on the old football field, which used to be the graveyard of the Jesuit priests, I'm sure there still is a ghost or two of those priests left on the grounds of that school.

I lived in San Antonio and the same exact story was legend there. This involved some tracks in the southeastern part of the city. I do remember a house on Piedmont street in the Kern area that was supposedly haunted. This was back in the 70's. Alta Vista is another school supposedly built on old burial grounds.

It's amazing how all these stories of haunted places come out during this time of year. There is no such thing as hauntings. It's all in your imagination. You can argue all you want that its real, or that you've seen it. Its amazing how creating the imagination can get when you really want to believe in something. Its funny to read these stories and hear them because its pure entertainment to see how so many people get "spooked" or believe these "hauntings" to be true.

There's always a lady or child in a white dress story, or the train track story about children from a bus, or the best of La Llorona that happens to be at every border city along the Rio Grande. Cold spots: a breeze from an opening? Or....a "spirit"? Orbs: floating spirits, or maybe, just maybe, lighting from the camera or surroundings? Images around people caught on photo's: mysterious captured images of lost souls, or the picture captured offset? Hmmmm....???

I have a friend in Chaparral who grew up in a haunted house out there. It was built over the remnants of an old adobe building. I used to work for the El Paso sheirffs dept and once experienced something weird on the 10th floor guard station. me and two other officers were sitiing there talking and heard some weird,other worldly gibberish. Imagine a music tape being played backwards and at high speed. It was unexplainable and all three of us heard it. There was nothing present that could have made those sounds. My arm hair still stands up remembering those sounds.

What about the monk who walks with his German Shepard in the midnite hours of Transmountain Rd?(dead, of course) A handful of people swear they have seen him. He either doesn't have a head or a face - something like that. Anyway, people have been known to pee on themselves. This has been going on for 30 or more years I believe.

The only thing haunted at Aliviane is the living employees there who treat the patients like s/h/i/t. This place should be closed simply for being a farce. Am I right Mr. CEO Madrid???
He has no shame, ethics, or class.(But he keeps reeling in the federal funds).

Fine story!

Ever since the late 1970s, I've firmly believed that the scariest places in El Paso were the Mayor's Office, the Chamber of Commerce, and the various special interest controlled, so-called "development" entities.
