Grain Elevator (circa 1920’s)
Activity is literally all over this building. This is a haunted property that will NOT disappoint. This place is not huge, so easy to hear and see everything Therefore, great care and precision ghost hunting has to be used.

Sheriff's Department and Jail (Circa 1869)
This 159 year old facility is full of energy! This haunted place ranks with amazing poltergeist activity, experienced several times in the short time Austin’s team has explored it. The Solitary Confinement hallway is intense and has made people dizzy and feel mentally off. Many believe it is haunted by an old Sheriff who resided in the home next door. In addition, a few remaining long-term inmates remain in this supernaturally rich space, now finishing their extended phantom sentence.

Karate Dojo and Retail Space (A former doctor’s office) (Circa 1890’s)
This former medical clinic has seen many faces over the 120+ years! The original architecture included a third floor, unfortunately demolished once from a fire. It is rumored that the upstairs used to be a temporary cold storage area for the morgue, prior to the establishment of Bryan Hospital
Although there is no factual data that verifies the intensity of the energy that permeates this building, it cannot be argued that this place is very spectral. Many suspect that it fed by the energy created by the Karate ceremonies and practices that occur in this space on a daily bases. The basement has been known to be active, with spirits who mock investigators. They have been known to move things. The current owner has captured a door closing on its own, caught on his security camera. In addition, his desk chair is always found in a different spot than when he left it the previous night.
Father John's Microbrewery (Circa 1895)
As a former Methodist/Episcopal church, this haunted property was built on a former graveyard. Today the spirits live with spirits, since it is now is an active pub/microbrewery. The current owner bought it to save the place from demolition, turning it into a brewery. He filled the entire place with spiritual and religious artifacts from different cultures around the world. Who knows what kind of energy each item holds! This place also features an adjoining haunted Bed and Breakfast, said to be inhabited with the spirit of a woman and a little girl. To make things more interesting, there is an actual tomb, complete with casket and all! This place is CRAWLING with energy and spectral activity!

Jackie Blu's Apartments (Circa 1879)
Today, these century plus old apartments serve as a Bryan restaurant. This building was built on the former grounds of a home where human skeletal remains were found during demolition. The first floor is modernized for the restaurant, but don't be fooled by the restaurant's appearance. The second story is a MASSIVE floor filled with WW2-era apartments and an old manufacturing facility. This place is downright CREEPY!
