      Burleson House, (located at 1206 West Main Street in Waxahachie, Texas), is a historic 2-story, single family residence that was built in 1915. The home was the original headquarters of T.W. Burleson & Son's Pure Honey (a family-owned business), which was established in 1907 by Thomas William Burleson.

      The house is said to be haunted by several long-departed ghosts from its past. When the new owners, (Angel and Kimberly Quintero) first viewed the home, they were aware of its rich heritage as the original headquarters of the family-owned honey company. But they had no idea, until they actually moved into the home that the house was haunted.

      Almost immediately after moving into the home, strange things started to occur: lights flickering on and off, doors slamming shut when there was no one else in the room, unusual cold spots, the distinctive smell of cigar smoke in the stairwell, items temporarily going missing only to show up in places you know you hadnít placed them. In fact, it suddenly became obvious to them that they were not alone, because it always felt as though they were constantly being watched by unseen eyes.

      Conversations took place in whispers by invisible spectors, and the sound of distinct footsteps trailed closely behind you when no one else was around. In fact, many of these encounters soon became common place and it was no longer unusual to walk dead center into an unexplainable cold spot that chills you to the bone. Door knobs would turn with deliberation, doors would creak open and slam shut with force by unseen entities, phantom footsteps would be heard distinctly walking up the stairs in the middle of the night, and shadowy silhouettes would appear beneath doorways when no one was home.

      The Owners eventually learned that several spirits resided in the home, which they later surmised were: an old gray-haired lady on the swing, a younger distressed woman, a little blond girl, a teen-aged boy named Billy and a tall, slim man who smoked cigars.
