Is the Six Poles Area in East El Paso Haunted? I’m Totally Invested
As many of you may know, I'm all about that spooky life; which is why I was shocked to have never heard about Six Poles in East El Paso!
Over on Reddit, I ran into a post where someone was asking about a haunted house they had explored on the East side. The original poster then shared a video where they were certain that the house in the video was the one they had explored; the house in the video is in the "Six Poles" area. Check it out below as it gives a little bit of an insight as to why the area is considered haunted!
I had never heard of this "Six Poles" so I watched the video and I was invested! The place literally has SIX POLES!
In the center lies a concrete block that is engraved on both sides. One side of the block says: "That I May Live To See One More Turn Of This October Sun- Ballard Coldwell"... the other side says: "Toward The Morn And Rising Sun- Hesiod"
Our friends over at Lost El Paso Paranormal have some more insight on this location:
It's an interesting sight [Six Poles], and the origin and intended purpose of this structure remains unknown to most, which is what probably fuels many of it's rumors.
In actuality, this location is part of a home/private property located nearby.
One of the fascinating quotes on the pillar comes from a member of the family; the structure itself functioned as a sort of gazebo that the family could enjoy, especially on desert nights.
If you're a fan of cult classics, and know your El Paso history well, this location may also seem familiar to you; this location was featured in a scene in the infamous 1966 B-horror cult movie, "Manos: The Hands Of Fate", which was filmed in El Paso.
So, is this area haunted by the woman who was killed at the slaughterhouse? Was this location just an area intended to be a gazebo where a family could enjoy the desert nights? Whichever it is, the Six Poles are still standing and the stories keep on coming.
Special thanks to our friends at Lost El Paso Paranormal for the pictures!
