HAUNTED EL PASO REVISITED - 2009 INVESTIGATION OF LA HACIENDA RESTAURANT: On the river banks of the Rio Grande just off Paisano sits the now shuttered Historical Landmark where legend has it Don Juan Onate crossed from what is now Mexico to what is now Texas on his journey north. Built in 1849 it was a private residence for hundreds of years before morphing into a stage coach stop, some say a brothel, and finally in 1940, a public restaurant.

Over the years, when it was still a bustling restaurant and bar, stories of the wait staff seeing plates and silverware move on their own, and hearing  footsteps when there was no one else around were common. Doors were said to open and close on their own, and some even claimed to hear disembodied voices.

So back in 2009, Henry Flores, fellow members of his Paso Del Norte Paranormal Society, and a couple of brave KISS-FM staff members spend the night at the restaurant to see how much truth there were to the stories. Conclusion? Things do indeed go bump in the night in there!  Here's some of what  was caught on tape that night.

Footsteps or a horse's hoof steps ...

Here it is again with much of the hiss and background noise removed ...

The Perverted Ghost. By far the most interesting thing caught on tape that night was what we now refer to as the Perverted Ghost. As the crew is discussing a reading on one of their gadgets, you can clearly hear some one or some thing voice it's approval of -- we think -- one of the ladies in the crew ...

"Oh Yeah" ...
