Thanks so much, Becky, for hosting this fun challenge. 🙂


This is the high school I went to. Lubbock High School was founded in 1891, and moved to this brand new building in 1931. It was built in the Romanesque Revival style. I think it is a beautiful building.

LHS is haunted. This fact has been known for many years. I, myself, experienced weird things, when I attended classes there. People have seen ghostly figures in the bell tower, and heard music coming from empty rooms. There are strange knocking sounds from inside the sealed walls, and I could feel the strangeness while walking in the 3rd floor back hallway. The arches in front are very spooky. You can hear a weeping woman, if you stand in a certain spot under them, and the auditorium and balcony have been the sight of other haunting episodes. There are also several gargoyles on the building.

Some of the past students who went on to become famous were, Buddy Holly, Natalie Maines (of the Dixie Chicks), Ralna English, and Mac Davis, among many other notables.

Here’s the photos I took.

  1. That is a great group of performers that came out of your high school. I totally believe your ghost stories. I have seen and experienced many a spirit in my life. Awesome!

    • Thanks, Lisa!
      It’s pretty amazing that so many talented people came from our area.
      I’m glad you like hearing about my strange experiences. I do try to keep an open mind about such things, and keep aware of anything out of the ordinary. I’d love to hear about your experiences, too. 🙂

      • I’ve photographed ghosts in St Augustine that look like smoke in front of the Episcopal church. There was no smoke or fog & nothing visible to the eye. Another day in St Augustine, beautiful sunny day. It was my birthday and my sister called me. While on the phone, a line of smoke crossed my feet that was cold. Again, it was a sunny day. I have felt patched of cold in the lighthouse. I also had someone blow on my neck during a ghost tour but there was no one behind me.
