Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Mission San Jose

San Antonio, Texas

While constructing the stonework on this mission, a stonemason fell madly in love with the maid of the building. The woman fell ill, however, and soon died. In her honor, a rose window was built and the stonemason constructed an elaborate memorial to surround it. The maid is now sometimes seen in the window.

I believe that it’s haunted but I cannot believe that they built a window or whatever in some lady’s honor. I mean maybe it’s true because I heard that is was haunted but not by who or what, and yet maybe it’s true with the woman because one time my mom took me there to pick up a friend at about 20 minutes before closing time, well my mom waited in the car and I got off to look for my friend. I couldn’t find her at first. I looked inside the church which was empty except I could see a woman wearing a sort of victorian dress(I don’t really know if it was victorian) sitting on one of those stall seats(whatever they are called). I thought maybe is could be someone from the party or wedding, so I went to go ask her if she’d seen my friend, but before I could get to her completely she turned around and I got scared to death and just ran out, screaming. I found my friend and we left. well one part I didn’t think made the story not much like the one above was that the woman I saw had a monstorous face, extremely scary and with red eyes. I don’t think I ever wanna go back there after that experience.

I just wanted to remind you that I don’t think my story fits the one above, I don’t think the horrible beast of the woman I saw has anything to do with an honored bueatiful woman but yet who knows? maybe I could have been hallucinating but I don’t think so because it seemed so real, so scary, so monsterous. I still remember the horrible way she looked at me and uhhhhh…. those eyes!!! I don’t think I can take it to think about it…….

A rose window is a style of window in a church. It isn’t named after a woman named Rose (or perhaps there were many women named Rose, loved by church builders, who died tragically all across Europe, because just about every old church in Europe has a Rose Window.) This mission was covered with ornate painted plaster years ago, so the ornate window would not look as out of place as it does now against the rough stone. The window probably displayed the host during the pentacost or other relics.

I would like to go and see this place for one it’s beautiful. Two I can feel spirits and hear them, I can’t see them unless they reveal themselves. For the post that described the monster face and red eye’s sounds like you may have encountered your own personal demon. I can’t see a demon or evil entity in a chapel/ church! I think your trying to scare people. I will visit and when I do. I will be more than happy to inform you all…
