One of the original settlements of Stephen F. Austin’s “Old Three Hundred,” Fort Bend County has a rich history of colorful characters that lived and died within the borders of the county, leaving behind tales of ghostly hauntings to keep their legends alive.
Hear some of those tales when Fort Bend County Libraries’ George Memorial Library presents “Ghost Stories of Fort Bend County” on Thursday, October 27, beginning at 7:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 1001 Golfview in Richmond.
Melissa Dixon of Texas Tour Connection will share stories of some ghostly inhabitants of Fort Bend County, including the ghosts of the Richmond jail, the ghost of Deaf Smith, and many others.
“The ghosts of this area seem to like it here as much as the current residents,” says Dixon. “There are places all around Richmond and along the Brazos that are said to be haunted.”
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
