The Galveston Ghost Podcast celebrates our second year with a return to the room where it all started, Room 501 at the Galvez. We recap some of the many things that have happen since we started the Podcast, including starting our Ghost Bus Tours, learning of many more haunted Island locations, creating the 501 Club on Facebook for people to share their stories, and coming soon the Galveston Ghost Hunt.
COVID caused us to pause our bus tours for the month of April, and we used that time to create a new Galveston App which can be found at www.Galveston.VIP - and it includes a HAUNTED GALVESTON section, definitely worth checking out - and soon you'll see our new Ghost Hunt appear here.
Thanks to Hotel Paranormal for their use of the audio clip from the Galvez. You can hear more about this story on Episode #19 of the Galveston Ghost Podcast, and see the photo of the Ghost who appeared outside his window on the cover page of that episode. Watch the complete episode including the video taken from the room that night on Season 1, Episode 5 "When Ghosts Attach" on Hotel Paranormal with Dan Aykroyd.
We first met Michelle, the Owner of BLU in December of 2018 when we were searching locations for the Galveston Ghost Bus Tour and www.GalvestonExperience.com and at that time she shared some of the paranormal happenings in her store. Later, we learned of a security video of a heavy crystal lamp moving and falling off a sales counter, and another of a large painting flying off the wall - even there was not any breeze in the store at all.
In this episode, Michelle tells more about both these occurrences as well as a spirit who entertained some of her customers with a piano performance.

We first learned of the Gingerbread house from some guests who were staying there over the 4th of July weekend in 2019. They shared their haunted experiences and were so shaken by what they witnessed that they refused to go back and stay for the rest of the weekend. Another guest who was on our Ghost Bus Tour on Halloween of 2019 shared the owners contact information with us and Ghosthunter Kate met her at the house to do an interview.
In addition, Kate researched the history of the house, it's owners and boarders. At least one of whom may still be there today.
