As the saying goes, everything is bigger and better in Texas, and that includes the amazing buildings, and other locations, that have been abandoned and still stand to this day. And with Halloween coming up soon, you may want to give yourself the creeps with these abandoned places in the Lone Star State.

It's worth noting, that some of the owners of these abandoned buildings are probably looking for buyers or tenants, nonetheless, they're currently permitted to 'weather away' in the background of many scenic areas of Texas.

Many of the buildings shown in the gallery are actually open to those who dare explore the ruins. When I say 'open', that doesn't mean there's someone there taking your ticket as you walk through the front door, just saying you might find an open window or door that will allow you to check it out.

It doesn't matter if you're a ghost hunter, urban explorer, or just flat-out curious about old buildings, you should put some of these on your to-visit list before Father Time destroys them.

Luckily, some of these buildings are historical landmarks and can't be demolished, but others will eventually be just dust in the wind. I'd love to see more people invest in properties, like these, to maintain their historical value.

Just remember, trespassing is a crime, so approach these buildings with caution.
