The early, boom years of the twentieth century brought much change to this country, and Texas was certainly no exception. With the stockyard industry prospering, especially around Fort Worth, accommodations were needed to deal with the sudden flow of cowboys and buyers in town. Dozens, perhaps hundreds of hotels sprung up in a short period of time, each of them with their own unique history and impact upon the town.
The pointedly named Stockyards Hotel is no exception. In operation since 1907, this hotel has served countless travelers (and the occasional outlaw) over the years, with vintage Old West flair and hospitality that can’t be beat.
And yet, there are those who speak of strange occurrences within the quaint confines of this old hotel. Strange noises and bizarre events and a former employee who works the hotel despite having passed long ago call the Stockyards Hotel home, making it a truly fascinating haunted locale to explore.
