When most people hear "creepy New Mexico stories," their initial reaction usually includes phrases like "Roswell" and "aliens." But while UFO sightings and potential alien landing sites are definitely a part of the state's freaky history, New Mexico offers numerous creepy legends and myths worthy of an entire season of The X-Files.
Stemming from local myths and histories, some of these tales are ghost stories involving individual spirits haunting their former mansions, while others focus on large groups of entities haunting places where they were harmed or slain. Still other legends deal with unexplained phenomena like the Taos Hum and a possible gateway to Hell - in other words, if you're looking for a spooky good time, New Mexico is the place to be.
