Strange Occurrences in The Esperson Buildings
Located in Downtown Houston, Texas
The Esperson Buildings are a set of three skyscrapers located in Downtown Houston, Texas. The buildings, which were completed in 1927, have a rich history and are rumored to be haunted by the ghost of their former owner, Niels Esperson.
Niels Esperson was a Danish-born businessman who made a fortune in the oil industry. He commissioned the construction of the Esperson Buildings as a tribute to his wife, Kathleen, who he believed was the love of his life. However, their marriage was tumultuous and Kathleen eventually left Niels for another man. Niels was devastated and never recovered from the heartbreak. He died in 1942, still pining for his lost love.
Since his death, there have been numerous reports of strange occurrences in the Esperson Buildings. Many people have claimed to see Niels's ghost wandering the halls, looking for Kathleen. Others have reported hearing strange noises and seeing objects move on their own.
One of the most famous hauntings occurred in the 1980s, when a group of office workers reported seeing the ghost of Niels standing at the window of one of the top floors. They said he was wearing a suit and tie and appeared to be looking out at the city below. When they approached him, he vanished into thin air.
There have also been reports of ghostly apparitions appearing in the mirrors of the buildings' restrooms. Some people have even claimed to have felt a cold, ghostly presence in the elevators.
Despite these spooky stories, the Esperson Buildings remain a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. Many people visit the buildings to see the architectural beauty and to possibly catch a glimpse of Niels's ghost.
