The Poet

A popular hotspot for spiritual activity, the Armstrong Browning Library at Baylor University is home to the ghost of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the famous English poet. An active spirit, Browning often approaches visitors and employees alike at various times in the day. She appears barefoot and in a lustrous, white gown as she wanders the upstairs room housing most of her books and personal effects, ranging from jewelry to a beautifully ornate wooden desk. Some believe she is there to protect her possessions. Others say she wanders the entire building at night, not just the one room, barefoot and dressed in white.


The legends and folktales in Cotton Bales, Goatmen & Witches: Legends from the Heart of Texas, compiled by Bradley T. Turner and accompanied by photographs from Mark Burdine, bring to life the whispered stories and forgotten secrets that illuminate the darkest recesses of the Texas psyche from the distant past to the present day.
