USS Lexington: Corpus Christi, Texas
Updated: Jul 13, 2020
In the Corpus Christi Bay sits the USS Lexington. The USS Lexington is an aircraft carrier that was built during WWII to help with war efforts in the Pacific. The first crew member from the ship to lose his life passed shortly after its launch into service due to a mechanical failure during training. The USS Lexington then went to Pearl Harbor where it help defeat numerous enemy aircraft. By the end of the war, the Lexington had seen significant battle and, unfortunately, lost hundreds of crew members.
Today, the USS Lexington has been retired and turned into a floating museum. Visitors can tour the ship and learn about its historical past. Quite a few of these visitors that have toured the ship claim to have spotted ghostly activity. People have claimed to have seen a sailor in his white uniform wandering below deck, numerous orbs, feelings of being touched, unexplainable cold spells, items going missing and more. There are several tours, both guided and self-guided available, though I do not believe any are ghost related. Who knows, maybe you will get lucky and experience a ghostly sighing on your next visit!
