Did You Know There Is A Haunted House On The Road Between Midland And Lubbock? Have You Seen It?
Have you ever noticed the nice house off to the right, just as you are about to be in Lubbock? It's at the exit you would take if you were going to go to Lubbock Cooper. For many years the house looked as if it were kept up with. When you look at it today it just looks like an overgrown abandoned house.
At one time it was a beautiful home, but after some digging, I learned it has some gory details. According to Plainsmen Press, it has quite a history in its less than 20-year life.
The house did not last very long without its first death. Rumor has it that within the first few years, an unarmed man was shot dead in the driveway. A few years later, the front door was kicked in, and a young girl was found, reportedly stabbed to death on top of the stairs, falling dead on the cat walk. It is also said that every person who has ever lived in the house has gone insane.
Perhaps the most disturbing legend the house holds is that a veterinarian who lived there supposedly performed experiments on dead and live animals in the shed. One story recounts a time when a pregnant pit-bull mix was given a caesarean section birth by the veterinarian. The vet allegedly inserted the newborn puppies back into the mother and sewed her shut. The kennels and “experiment” room still stand to testify to the accounts with some dark, depressing vibe that visitors would be able to feel in their chest.
The current owners had the house investigated by the Lubbock Ghost Investigation Society in 2018. From the very beginning, the house began to speak to those present for the investigation. Immediately after entering the house, a report of a ghostly man was spotted crossing paths with the investigators.
Marc Coley and Denver Blanscett bought Woodrow Manor and turned it into a haunted house during Halloween season but were unable to open this year due to severe vandalism.
