The Magnolia Hotel is offering its next VIP Public Group Paranormal Investigation with the Texas team RIPCREW on February 11. Only a small group will be allowed for this special event, so book your tickets early. You first get a walking tour of the building and will be told of the rich history of the many ghost that haunt the hotel by owners Jim & Erin Ghedi. They will inform you of the building's incredible history from its early beginnings as a log cabin in 1840 and to its glory days of 1880's hotel in post civil war Seguin. You will be introduced to the many known spirits who still reside within the hotel's walls, including some new recent discoveries. You will then meet the experienced paranormal team Ripcrew (seen on Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventure's" & Destination America's "When Ghost Attack"), who will give you step by step instructions about paranormal investigations and show everyone how to use their paranormal equipment needed for your hands-on investigation. They will be available to answer any questions and explain investigation details as the night unfolds. Attendees will be split into two groups and each will be given a chance to investigate the entire hotel. You will experience live activities on the monitors at the Command Center and witness how the team reviews paranormal evidence captured.

​The books that started it all!

Featured on “Texas Most Endangered Places” 2012 list by Texas Preservation and destine for demolition, the Magnolia Hotel has now been rescued. Built in 1840 by Texas Rangers, the Magnolia Hotel became Seguin's first stagecoach station and frontier hotel. The Indian Raid Shelter located under the building was once the town's original jail. In 1850 the two story, 10 room addition was added becoming the finest hotel in the area. It was a resting stop for thousands of travelers. After surviving the threat of attacks from the Mexican soldiers, Comanche Indians and the Civil War it then endured the sorrows of the Reconstruction Era. Union Officers took over the hotel while soldiers made camp across the street. By the late 1870's with arrival of the railroad, the hotel once again became the main social gathering point for the town of Seguin. In 1930 the hotel had fallen into disrepair and was transformed into apartments. From the late 1990's until 2013 the building was abandoned and empty. It fell victim to drug users, vandals and prostitutes. In 2013, Jim and Erin Ghedi purchased the building and are now restoring it back to its original 1880 glory! The Magnolia Hotel is truly a Texas Landmark. Over the 170 plus years, thousands of guests have checked into the hotel but for some they never checked out. The hotel is known to be haunted by at least 13 ghosts. Some of the most notable haunts include a pharmacist who mistakenly killed a young girl while attempting to murder his wife. The traveling salesman who committed suicide by cutting his throat has been seen walking the halls at night. Others are the weeping woman who died of a broken heart, the suicide cowboy and the starved prisoner in the basement. The most famous is the fortune teller who held many under her mystic control. Come visit the spirits who linger within the walls of the Magnolia Hotel, if you dare!
