Spirit Tours at Magoffin Home Begin This Weekend

Throughout the month of October, hear the stories of spirits and other odd occurrences in the Magoffin Home. Built in 1875, Magoffin family members and their descendents lived in the home for more than 100 years, and it is now one of the oldest surviving adobe structures in the El Paso area.

The Casa Magoffin CompaƱeros are offering these special tours on October 3, 10 and 31 at 10 a.m. The cost is $5 and all proceeds go to supporting preservation of the home. Reservations are required; please call 915.533.5147 to reserve your spot. Magoffin Home State Historic Site is located in the heart of downtown El Paso at 1120 Magoffin Ave.

  1. I HIGHLY recommend this Spirit Tour at the Magoffin Home. The crew there as well as the tour guide, Bud, are friendly and knowledgeable in El Paso History thru the eyes of the Magoffin Family.

    Last time I went, my family saw Uncle Charlie's rocking chair move on it's own as if he stood up from the chair.

    You wont be dissapointed.
