El Paso’s Jefferson HS Adds 2nd Ghost Tour Due To Popular Demand
Ghosts 915 adds a second Jefferson High School ghost tour due to popular demand at the end of April.
Jefferson High School is home to the Silver Foxes and one of the nationally recognized magnet schools on campus with careers in the medical field.
Since 2016 the school has been going through a major makeover thanks to an El Paso Independent School District bond that approved modernization construction improvements, a new baseball field, gym facilities, a new 3-story school building, including the tearing down of the original main building.
But, before the main building gets demolished, the crew of Ghosts 915 is hosting the last ghost tours on-premises. And now, due to popular demand, the added ghost tour will accommodate former alumni and the curious to see what exactly lurks in the halls of La Jeff.
Whether you are a believer or not, El Paso is one of the most haunted cities in America and according to the book by Dennis William Hauck titled Haunted Places: The National Directory: Ghostly Abodes, Sacred Sites, UFO Landings, and Other Supernatural Locations, the high school is where the devil once appeared to students in 1947, a couple of years before the school fully opened as Jefferson High (formerly Burleson Elementary).
Former and current students and staff also tell creepy stories of different ghostly girls who appear, float, and vanish into thin air along the canal behind the school, in the old band room, ROTC building, and staircases of the main building.
Other stories include portals, the apparitions of Vietnam Vets, whispers, and even reports from a night shift security supervisor at the hospital who would often see shadows through the school's windows after hours across the street.
If that's not enough, there are also stories of paranormal activity in the girl's and boy's locker room and the apparition of a little boy in the small gym, and it's so creepy at times that the custodians sometimes refuse to enter areas like the library and the home economics room after dark.
These are but a few of the haunted tales surrounding Jefferson High School, and if you dare walk the school's grounds before it gets demolished, you might want to save your spot before the added ghost tour fills up.
