The vicinity of Spring, Texas features many wonderful cemeteries, and Old Town Spring has the reputation of being very haunted. On Sunday evening, 22 May 2005, we visited several locations, with interesting results.
Wunsche Cemetery is a lovely little cemetery with a big reputation, located between the feeder road and I-45, immediately after the Cypresswood exit, heading north. This can be a challenging place to stop, although there is a small parking area for visitors. (You will be re-entering feeder road traffic, including cars leaving I-45 that may still be driving at interstate speeds.)
We checked Wunsche Cemetery twice, and feel that it may have some low-level hauntings. However, we were there during daytime hours and at dusk; it may be better after dark.
Wunsche Bros. Cafe
This is one of the few sites in Old Town Spring that’s almost sure to be haunted. We have no conclusive outdoor photos yet, but several good indoor pictures.
At the right is a photo of one of the rooms where EVP has been reported. According to legend, it was one of the girl’s rooms when the cafe was a brothel.
When a Wunsche Bros Cafe staff member is available to show guests around, he or she will escorts patrons upstairs and point out a few of the important haunts on that level.
You’ll be climbing steep stairs to see a rocking chair that we’ve observed rocking when no one was nearby. Generally, you can linger as long as you’d like, and take photos and EVP recordings, unless an event or private party is scheduled in one of the upstairs rooms.
Cemetery #1 (our name for the cemetery, not its real name)
This cemetery is in a quiet, residential area and we’re not comfortable sharing the exact location at this time.
Because the cemetery is well-sheltered from breezes, bugs can be a problem. These are our best photos from our second visit there:
Orb #2 on the right is the correct shape, but it is a little too brilliant and the edges are slightly fuzzy. This also suggests an insect or – more likely – moisture, but it’s possible that it’s a very odd “ghost orb.” Because of the insects in the area, we have to discount this second orb as well.
