Breif History: This location, originally, was end of a rugged stage coach line in the mid 1880's to early 1900's (exact date unkown). The only thing here at the time was a blacksmith shop. The Tavern was built around the old shop in the 1930's. The original wall of the shop is still standing.
If you want to read more about the Devil's Backbone, peruse the links to the right under "related links." There's a book, some online history of Fischer, Texas as well as an article on the Tavern.
Here's a short video for you to conclude for yourself whether or not what you see is "dust", "insect" or "orb." I realize that this type of evidence is typically tossed out, dismissed as dust etc. For the record, there was zero movement; no air conditioning, no ceiling fan, no wind. It was extremely still (and did I mention how HOT it was??)
This part of Texas is absolutely breathtaking. If you are ever in need of a mini road trip and have a hankering for some spectacular views, a cold beer and an excellent BBQ sandwhich, then you should definitely stop on by the Devil's Backbone Tavern. Tell 'em GHoT sent ya!
No significant personal experiences to report. The team as a whole “felt” nothing of any significance during the investigation.
