Magoffin Homestead - Real Haunt in El Paso TX
This home dates back to 1875 when it was built by El Paso mayor Joseph Magoffin. His family lived in the home until 1976, when the City of El Paso and the State of Texas purchased it. The location is believed to be haunted by a few ghosts, including that of Charles Richardson, Joseph Magoffin’s brother-in-law and best friend. Another is Uncle Charlie who rocks in in the rocking chair that he died in long ago, and also opens and closes doors and messes with the lights. A ghostly lady in blue has also been seen here, she is thought to be Octavia Magoffin, as well as a little girl and a lady in a white Victorian-style dress. Cold breezes and taps on the shoulder have been reported by homestead visitors.
