aMULEts #2: Ghosts
Tim Bryant / aMULEts
“Nacogdoches has a soul, a spirit, an atmosphere. She is no raw product of today or yesterday. There are ghosts on her streets. Perhaps you have never seen them; but they are there. And what a wonderfully picturesque, varied pageant they make!”
Poet and Nacogdoches resident Karle Wilson Baker wrote in 1906 that the streets of Nacogdoches were full of ghosts. I concur. In fact, that’s exactly what I tried to get across to Lorraine and Sharion of the Texas Ghost Society when I received a call from them at The Runaway Mule recently. The Texas Ghost Society had expressed interest in coming to the Oldest Town In Texas and scoping things out. The Chamber of Commerce, knowing I have an active interest in the town’s history— specifically, that of the downtown and its buildings— had given Lorraine my number.
