Tour El Paso High’s Legendary Tunnels This Weekend
Bring up El Paso High School and most long-time El Pasoans think 'haunted'.
If you've lived here long enough you've undoubtedly heard a spooky tale or two about alleged ghost sightings and paranormal activity at what has been called The Scariest Haunted High School In America.
And you've probably also heard about underground passages underneath the hallowed hallways of the Lady on the Hill. For decades their existence was the stuff of myths and lore, but that is no longer the case.
This weekend, the E.P.H.S. Alumni Association will be giving the curious a chance to get a rare look inside the historic building's legendary tunnels.
The group plans to remodel the old custodian's home and is raising money for the project. Their goal is to convert it into an alumni center that will also house the first stand-alone high school museum in El Paso.
The Tunnel Tours will be Friday, May 18, 2018 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, May 19, from noon to 6 p.m. . Admission is $10; $5 for students. Entry is on a first come first serve basis.
To be clear, this is not a ghost tour, per se. Oh, it's creepy as heck down there, but expect lots of dust, stairs, cobwebs, and some history and not necessarily the mysterious ghost girl from the now famous photo.
But that's not to say your tour group will be the only ones down there. Muahaha!
