GOLIAD - Stories of paranormal activity have been around for several years at the Presidio La Bahia.
The Travel Channel plans to explore some ghost stories from there for its series, America's Most Terrifying Places on Wednesday.
"Personally, I've had no unusual experiences, but that doesn't mean they don't exist," said Newton Warzecha, director of Presidio La Bahia.
Travel Channel producers will shoot throughout Wednesday.
The crew will have access to various parts of the Presidio, except for the chapel.
Warzecha said the museum will not be closed during normal hours, but will most likely be closed by the time filming begins.
"There have been many ghost hunters out here," said Warzecha, who has had overnight guests say they experienced paranormal activity during their stay.
Visitors can reserve the sleeping quarters, which hold four people, said Warzecha.
