In 1977 I was a senior at Frenship High School in Wolfforth Texas.
I rode a dirt bike behind where I lived and would run alongside a railroad track to get to a friend’s house and hang out.
This story comes to us from West Texas. Check it out.
“Well, it happened in the town of Post, Texas while my brother and I were young. It happened one night while walking home on a hot West Texas Summer night while walking in the alley towards our home.
While walking down the alley, I get a feeling we are being followed, so I tell my little brother, Mike, if he sees what I see at the end of the alley. A very tall, black figure that you could not see his face, but the darkness of his figure.
So we begin to walk faster and as we do the the figure begins to move faster, but as if floating on the dirt towards us, so we begin to run even faster and the black figure begins to catch up til we get home and slide through the screen door pale as a ghost,shaking and scared. We told my mom and she was really scared for us and we never found out what that figure was.”-John
I’m curious who on here has heard of The Devil at Los Arcos. I’ve heard this story many times sometimes from a”friend” of a person who was present that night, and even from a person who claimed to be a witness to the unexpected visitor that night. Either way, the story goes like this.
On a hot, West Texas night, a dance was in full swing at the well known Los Arco’s Ballroom. As Norteno music played loud enough to be heard several blocks away, the crowded dance hall moved with couples both young and old . The smell of beer and liquor swelled, reaching out beyond the walls like a haze above the building.
Inside, the ballroom was dimly lit with only the colored lights on stage and a yellow hue of the bar that gave little light to the people inside . This particular night was extremely busy. A favored band was playing and the crowded dance floor left little room for movement. Sometime, during the music and movement, a stranger appears. No one claims to have seen him walk in but only that he was suddenly there. The people begin to ask; who is this man? He is not from here, some guessed he was from a neighboring town others assumed he was was simply a new resident to the oil boom town.
A woman from Midland, TX shares an experience involving a premonition of death of a family friend.
“When I was around 6 or 7 years old living in West Texas, my older brother had a friend named Raymond. Raymond was really nice to me and I really loved having him around the house. He would always laugh and joke with me. He was becoming part of the family.
We were having a family/friends get together to celebrate a birthday. During the celebration two of my nephews and a niece came tearing into the house, screaming at the top of their lungs, saying that a plane crashed in one of the adjacent pastures. My brother, myself and about 3 others walked outside to see what was causing all the ruckus.

“My uncle told this story when I was a kid.
When he was a kid in Mexico he had friends that liked playing with a ouija board. They always invited him, but he never took them up on their offer. They kept insisting that he play. One day he took them up on their offer.
