13 Freaky Abandoned Places In The South That Will Keep You Up At Night

7. Texola, Oklahoma

Yet another place now considered a ghost town, Texola, Oklahoma

With a history dating back to the early 1900s, Texola was once called Texokla and Texoma.  Because it’s so close to the 100th Meridian, the town was surveyed eight different times, which means some residents lived in Oklahoma and Texas at one point, without ever moving.

The population saw a 95% increase in 1930, but then began rapidly decreasing throughout the years. According to the 2010 census, the population of Texola was 36.
