There are plenty of beautiful historic houses here in the metroplex that you can tour and visit during the year. This beautiful 19th century home might be one of the most hunted places you’ll visit and Fort Worth. Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House will leave you to stunned with how amazingly well it’s been preserved but it's still frighteningly spooky.
The beautiful house was built in 1899 for a banker’s widow and her son, Sarah and Frank Ball. They both lived happily in the house until their deaths, with Frank dying in 1901 followed by his mother in 1904. The house was then sold to the Eddleman’s. The family consisted of just a father and a daughter, with the father dying in the house in 1932. Carrie Eddleman, now Carrie Eddleman-McFarland, died in that same house in 1978. The house is now owned by the city of Fort Worth and you can tour it almost any day.
While the house is mostly known for its amazing architecture, there have been several spooky incidents in the house. Some instances include people saying they felt tapping on their shoulders while they were taking a tour, while others felt like somebody was staring at them. Tourists of the house have heard voices speaking and then turned around to nobody being in the room, along with spotting blurry figures and images.
While some believe that there aren't any ghosts in the house, does it hurt to believe the house may have some spirits left over from the deaths that occurred in there?
The tours for the McFarland House are only $20. They are open for tours on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
