  1. Fort Davis= I had my family stay at the Webster House in Fort Stockton. Everyone in the house had experiences that night… from “a elderly lady walking thru the house”, to voices outside at 4am, to a man’s voice saying “Hey” and “Get out” to me, to temperature changes throughout the house, to the hair raising on your arms as you walk towards a piece of furniture in one of the bedrooms. Opened doors are later close… We also had a travel light that was on in one of the locked cars and as we approached the car, the light went off. Lot’s of activity at the house and in the area surrounding it.
