Reindeer Manor

410 Houston School Rd., Red Oak

Are you ready to visit the longest running haunted house in Texas? Originally built by James Sharp in 1920, the manor served as a blissful home for Sharp and his wife, until the stock market crashed and sent him into a murderous frenzy. According to urban legend, Sharp poisoned his wife and ended his life in the nearby 13th Street morgue. The manor is not only home to the demise of the Sharp family, but features his final resting place – The 13th Street Morgue – as well as the Dungeon of Doom, and The Bunker.
