Coupland Inn and Dancehall
Location: Coupland , TX
History: The town of Coupland was founded in 1887 by Major Theodore Van Buren Coupland on land he inherited. The dancehall was built in 1910. The hall, resturuant, and Inn had several fronts such as a mercantile store, newsletter publishing, a druge store with a bootleg operation out of the back, bar and bordello, telephone company & dentist office.
Stories: Several members of the staff have their fair share of odd happenings. In the dancehall, there is a fan hung on wall near the back of the hall on the right side of the dance floor that often comes on by itself. What makes this spooky? There is no motor in the fan. I spoke to the man who removed the parts. Another sees a little girl peeking around the curtain leading to the resturant. This same little girl has been identified as being another child's invisible pool friend. This litle girl is often spotted throughout the property and is known to be the the daughter of a woman who worked upstairs at the bordello. The little girl was reported to have been hit by a vehicle in front of the dancehall.
Upstairs at the Inn - the purple room, where the woman who lost her daughter stayed, is a hotspot for activity. The story goes that she was so distrought over the loss of her daughter, she hung herself in this room. There have been reports from guests and workers of seeing a woman peer out of the window down into the street. The location she lost her daughter.
This location has many eye witness reports of apparitions. From the ladies room, the dancehall, the kitchen to the bedrooms, people have had a experiences.
