Proud of East Texas: Beckham Ghosts 2


The Beckham Hotel in Mineola is reputed to be one of the most haunted hotels in Texas, and owners past and present tend to agree. 

John Defoore, who's known more for teaching guitar to country music stars like Miranda Lambert and Kacey Musgraves than he is ghost encounters, says many strange things happened while he owned the hotel. Unexplained phenomenon like ghosts waking up guests, a disappearing woman on the stairway and a little girl in and out of rooms, only begins to tell the story. 

Becky Penrod, who had previously owned the hotel, had similar experiences.

Present owner Connie Meissner is not only restoring the Beckham Hotel, she's documenting the hotel's supernatural inhabitants.
