Haunted Plano. Yes, it’s a thing. Do spirits of those who lived in Plano long ago still haunt the halls and streets of our city? Many who live and work in the buildings in historic downtown Plano are convinced there’s ghostly mojo afoot. We take you to three of Plano’s Most Haunted Places and hear stories from Jamey Jamison and Leesie Pool – two residents who’ve encountered spooky shadows from the past.

Episode 25: Plano Family Plots
Just in time for Halloween … we take you on a spooky tour of Plano family plots, the pioneer cemeteries of Plano. From tiny family plots tucked in quiet corners, to Plano Mutual, the sprawling final resting place for thousands of souls we visit with the living, telling tales of the departed. Learn the dark and tragic tale from Plano’s past that’s the origin story of one graveyard, and uncover the hidden stories behind headstones, of the founding families’ heartbreaking losses, resilience and faith. Finally, we meet a few of passionate Plano citizens who are working to preserve and restore these historic treasures — including one who’s earned the title of “the Cemetery Lady of Collin County.”
