Waxahachie, TX is home to one of the most haunted eateries in the nation, Catfish Plantation. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.


The Catfish Plantation Restaurant is located 35 miles south of Dallas. Tom and Melissa Baker purchased the Victorian historic (circa 1895) house in 1984, in the hopes of making it a successful Cajun restaurant. In 2007 the Bakers sold the restaurant to the Landis Family and delicious Cajun food is still on the menu.



Not long after they purchased the building, Melissa came in to find a large tea urn placed in the middle of the floor with clean coffee cups stacked around it even though no one had been in the building since the last time it was locked up.

Other activity included dishes and silverware moving on their own, radios suddenly changing stations, toilets flushing by themselves and the piano playing with no one sitting at it. The doors also lock and unlock on their own and they hear knockings on the walls. Many have sensed cold spots throughout the property and a sudden scent of roses.
