And we will end tour with a  night investigation at Thurber Cemetery, which sits on over 9 acres of land high up on hill. This cemetery is a hot spot for paranormal activity. Our paranormal team has investigated this location several times and we always come away with some form of evidence.

While on this tour we will be stopping for dinner at the famous Smokestack Restaurant, so make sure you bring some extra money for a delicious dinner in a location that is a piece of history in itself.


Some Information:

Standing today are two restaurants, the Thurber Museum, and two Cemeteries. As well as St. Barbara’s Catholic Church, a Miners Cabin, and a small Train Cart. One cemetery is very small, and is right next to the Thurber Museum, which can only be accessed during Museum hours, and by permission only.

The history of Thurber is very intense. It was established, and within 50 years, it became a Ghost Town, due to a major Fire that took most of the town. This happened during the depression, so the city did not have the funds to rebuild the town. Thurber was popular for many reasons. For their oil, their coal, and eventually their bricks. In fact, if you visit the Fort Worth, TX Stockyards, and look at the brick on the roads, and some sidewalks, you will see that the bricks came from Thurber, TX.

The cemetery on the hill was badly vandalized. A local man went into the cemetery, and literally bulldozed 99% of the gravestones to the ground. Thankfully, the police found the man, and he is now serving time in prison for his crime. However, it is our opinion, that when he destroyed the graves, he may have stirred up the paranormal activity in the cemetery as well.

Now, the local historical society is working on redoing the cemetery. The last time we were out there to do an investigation, they had put up several markers stating who lays where, and the story behind several of the mass graves, one mass grave of which contains the remains of several children who died from the Flu Epidemic.

Thurber, TX is a must visit location. Even if you’re not an investigator, but love history, this town would be worth a visit. Take in the great food, and do the full Museum Tour. The history at Thurber, TX is begging to be heard!
