I know for a fact the Alamo is haunted. I was in the Alamo one night after it closed and saw an evil looking ghost. I ended up striking up a conversation with him. We talked about the battle for the Alamo and how if the Texans would have had graduates of the CPEC course, a better sense of tactics like an Emergency Services Team, and some one-on-one training with SSgt Vance “Screaming Eagle” Smith they might have whipped the Mexicans. We continued our conversation over a few Bud-Lites and an MRE. The ghost told me he lost a good friend at the Alamo named Pvt. Marc Garcia. Marc was a Mexican soldier that had switched sides and was fighting for the Texans because they were the only one’s that would let him wear his combat shoulder patch. He seemed like a really nice ghost once I got to know him.

I may not have had any family die there. I know this story to be true. When I was younger, my family and I walked around down town and passed the Alamo and I saw this face of a man with a raccoon hat on. Later, I found out that man was the one and only David Crocket and that he was one of the men to die there.

I was at the Alamo for my 15th birthday when I heard a fiddle playing in a fast pitched manner. I turned around and there was a man that I assumed was David Crockett he did not have a Raccoon hat on but I found out that he didn’t wear things like that. Anyways he was see through he looked at me and I saw him smile, he whispered something about the Mexican army and then instead of vanishing turned into a little blue or or something.

It’s weard!! When I went there this summer, I saw a shadow of a man by a tree I moved it and it was still there then I felt a strange sensation on my shoulder and told my mom about it while we were there.

I’m sorry to burst all your bubbles, but the supposed “ghosts” of the Alamo are not real. I’ve been there countless times, and never once have I encountered anything that could not be explained. Once, I thought I felt a chilly wind blow over my shoulders and I ran to my parents, terrified. We went back and descovered I was merely standing next to an air conditioning vent. And the first guy who commented, with the ghost that liked beers, I pretty sure he was drunk himself. “Ghosts” are not beings and therefore cannot consume any food or drink. It’s impossible. And the eerie feeling you get while there? No duh! Hundreds of people died on that site. You set foot anywhere on that property and you are probably standing where a dead body once laid. That would creep anyone out if you think about it. And if you go there expecting something, your mind will play tricks on you and something as simple as an eerie vibe or a shadow can be misconstrued as a ghostly, paranormal encounter. Face the facts, ghosts do not exist.

that stuff is true! i know it is because i was there with my family and somehow we got seperated and i was, like, wandereing around and then i heard crying and i went to this little hallway and saw a little girl in a corner, and i like helping people so i asked her what was wrong, and she told me her dady was dead, and he was killed right here and she grabed my hand and took me to this little spot of ground and pointed, and i swear i saw a guy writhering on the ground and i think he said “Thank u,” and he closed his eyes and i asked him if he was having a heart attack and he didnt answer and i got really freakd out because i thought “OMG, this guy just died in front of me” and i looked at the girl, and SHE WAS GONE! and i looked at the guy, and he dissapered!

We have been to the Alamo many times, and have NEVER had an encounter with any ghosts. never seen any faces, or heard any strange noises. The Alamo is not haunted.

i too have been to the alamo countless times. apparently several of the posters do not realize that the “alamo” is not actually the real alamo. it was destroyed and rebuilt. to add to that, it’s not even really in the same spot, right next to it, but not the same spot. and on top of that, the alamo was the church in the compound which held the women and children during the battle. they were all taken out and killed or released to mexican custody, not killed “in” the alamo. some people watch to many movies, they are all inaccurate.

Austinsun says:

When was the Alamo destroyed and rebuilt? I went to the official Alamo website, as well as the Daughters of the Republic of Texas Library website. Neither site mentions it being destroyed and rebuilt in a different site. The Alamo is on the original site. It was heavily damaged but was repaired after the battle. There is a picture of the damaged building before it was repaired. It is obvious the building was not completely destroyed. See for yourself:
The original church collapsed, but that was PRIOR to the battle at the Alamo. It was rebuilt before the battle. What most people don’t realize is the Alamo once comprised of more than just the church. There was a wall surrounding the place, making it a large fortress.

Me and my family went to the Alamo one night. I was scared because that place was haunted i had heard. When i went inside i saw a chain hanging from the celing people had died there in that very chain so i went there for temptation and i heard a loud yell that said ahhhhh help me, and i ran out and peed on my pants.

mariana says:

While reading through the horrifying stories of others I felt a strong since of satisfaction to know Im not the only one. Long ago, well 3 years ago I went on vacation with my cousin Skip, he told me that the alamo was haunted and I laughed. Later on we stopped by the alamo, I was admiring the building when I noticed a bird perched on top of it. I stared at the bird, and the bird stared back. I knew in that moment that the bird was possessed by a ghost. I have never been the same. When I see birds I run and scream, I sometimes even vomit. I think that was the curse given to me from an evil spanish spirit. I’ll never visit the alamo again and I will never bird watch like my grandma.

WIlly Federlinian says:

Dear fellow Americans,

I come to you with brilliant evidence, justification, and most importantly, answers. Now read carefully, for I shall only type this once. The bird Roberta was speaking of, was infact my Uncle Phillip IV. Long ago, my Uncle Phillip IV would have intense hallucinations that birds were flocking in his chambers at dawn and sunrise. “Uncle Phillip IV! Uncle Phillip IV!” I would say, “What is that you see?” Birds young willy, it is birds I see, he would reply. But when I looked out the window, all I would see were Spanians working on the house next door. Then my Uncle Phillip IV went to fight in the cold war. It was very cold. When we heard of the tragic news that Uncle Phillip IV had passed, it was learned that his last dying wish was to be buried on a perch of the red ribbon tree outside the Alamo, in hopes to be reincarnated as the chirping brown sparrow. Thus after reading Roberta’s heart felt apposition, I am at peace now that Uncle Phillip IV’s wishes had been granted. This fact concludes that the ALAMO is indeed haunted, and this was his story.

Thank you.

I have been to the Alamo numerous times expecting to see something but never do. The only weird thing i saw was this one guy smoking something and playing a violin right outside the alamo. Oh and Willy i knew your uncle as a matter of fact i was the one that turned him into a bird.

Well i have been to the alamo a few times. THe last time i went i was thirteen and now i am older but i have never experienced anything so i really don’t believe its haunted i just think it was another story to amuse or terrify people. I also think that some of these people here are not telling the whole truth. Though that is just what i think I am not calling any body a liar

The number 666 can be seen on the Alamo in the right corner as you face the front. It appeared and cannot be washed off. Ghost tour of San Antonio pointed it out and it is really there. Check it out.

One time when I went to the Alamo For a class feild trip I was standing near the well and I saw a man appear at the bottom of the well and when I looked around I saw men some laughing in a terible high pitched sound and some men crying. One mane looked defintly familiar. It was David Crocket. He wore a small Raccon Hat and had an enormas knife in his right pocket. I ran to my techer and group. They all looked but then everything was gone.

My name is Roger, and I’m a 34 year old Olive Garden employee/dishwasher. I still live with my mom, and yes, for those of you wondering I do happen to be fond of Dungeons and Dragons. We decided to take a trip to the marvelous city of San Antonio, and this is my story. Once upon a time I too took a grand visit to the infamous Alamo. I was helping my mom wheel around her oxygen tank,and while she lit her Newports I happened to notice a man through the smoke she blew into the hot summer air. I stood shocked because a man in the distance seemed to have a rabid raccoon attacking the top of his head. Even more strange, he was playing the violin ever so passionately. As I looked closer I saw that the raccoon was dead, and placed ever so carefully on his head. He seemed to be doing some foreign dance to celebrate the varment’s death and continued to play the violin. Suddenly my mother, Beatrice, went into an asthmatic attack, and I turned my attention to her. When i looked back I noticed that the strange tribal man was gone. When we got back to the trailer park, I told my mom about the days events. She seemed to be in shock, but it was just another asthmatic episode. I wanted to tell her after she took her breathing treatments, but she fell asleep on the kitchen floor from too much Southern Comfort. Anyways this is the first time I’ve told this story to anyone. Or for that matter had contact with the real world. The End.

The majority of you people are on crack or taking a
couple of shots of vodka before hitting the keyboard.
Yes, I believe that The Alamo is haunted considering
all of the violence and what happened there. On a
visit, I had a picture of my sister and I taken in
the front and there were 2 “orbs” that were caught on
it. And that is about the ONLY experience that I’ve
had there.

Brianna says:

BeiBei says:

I agree with Brianna. Most of you don’t even make sense. Does anyone monitor these comments? I have been to the Alamo several times. I have never seen any ghosts, but I have felt a heaviness come over my body and great sadness. Considering the slaughter that took place there, it wouldn’t surprise me if the Alamo was haunted. By the way, grow up or stay off of these message boards. Idiotic comments show your lack of intelligence.

For those of you who would like to know of other Haunted Hotels in the San Antonio area. We stayed this past summer at the Omni Mansion Del Rio Hotel right along the Riverwalk. I tell you what, this Hotel is just way to creepy for me. The management at this hotel does not want the public to know that it is haunted. However, my husband got some creepy ghost stories out of an employee there. I know that this place was built in the 1850’s, otherwise it is a beautiful hotel. If anyone knows any stories on this Hotel please give us your story :)

First off, I didn’t spend a whole lot of time in the Alamo building itself because there was WAY too many people in there for it’s size, but nothing interesting happened. I find it hard to believe that Davey Crockett would act like a retard for people unless someone was dressed up as him.

Patty says:

December 21, 2006, 11:02 pm

I went to the Alamo briefly during the day and I saw no ghosts that I was aware of anyway. Everyone seemed to be from modern times. This does not mean it isn’t haunted because ghosts show themselves to who they want to see them at the time,are more active during certain times or conditions, and sometimes they are noticed when they are not aware of it. They are not just standing around on display for your amusement. A sighting is a gift of significance to either you, the ghost, or someone in the immediate area. They are attracted to some people and then there are other people who will never see a ghost unless it is caught on camera. Ghosts are in many locations and of course the Alamo would be a good bet on a location just because of the sheer magnitude of tragedy and loss. They may also be found in places without that kind of history and may either stay for a long period of time or just be passing through. Some are evil, some just average, and some are good. You can scoff if you like but there is a whole world out there that you are missing and you should never just discount the experience of someone else. On the other hand ghost fans should look for other explanations is possible but don’t be surprised if they are not always available. I have had many experiences just not at the Alamo – but again my visit was brief. So happy haunting to all of you!

I read about the Alamo. I think it would be haunted.
Alot of people tell me that ghost are not real. But i think they are.Ghost are like their souls.But some ghost are mean because the person who died,has been bad and the devil goes into their soul and they become a real bad ghost. I lived in a haunted house before! It was pretty dang scary. Everynight i would hear sounds and everytime i would clean, everytrash i would pick up would fly back down on the floor.It Was Scary!

I do belive the Alamo is haunted. Me and my cousin Blake went around the area around 11:00 PM because we were taking a long walk trying to figure out a way to beat a stupid video game and we ended up seeing a tall pale white man in a Texan war suit. We looked puzzeled at him and my cousin faintly laughed at the way he was dressed. I nudged him ever so lightly and we decided to have a smal conversation with the man.

“Hello, how are you sir?” I asked

The man didn’t answer

“Hey! Listen to us! We’re trying to be friendly!” My cousin yelled.

Still no answer

“It’s as if he doesn’t even know we’re here” I told my cousin quietly

We heard my cousin’s mom shouting to come inside so we turned our heads and waved. When we looked back the man was gone. We didn’t hear any footsteps leaveing and so we both started looking around the area but no man. We quickly relized about the Alamo and that every soldier there was killed by the Mexican. So we ran off back to the house crying our eyes out from being scared. What? We were little!

I have gone to the Alamo, and although I didn’t see any ghosts the first time I did see something the second time. My family and I were traveling down the street walking to a wax museum which is across the street from it, while we were walking I looked over to the Alamo and saw a figure on top of the Alamo.

For the record, ALMOST every last single one of you needs to stop typing/posting on websites until you figure out how to properly utilize the English language to include spelling, grammmar and syntax. It is really embarrassing to see this many people unable to communicate clearly with one another via message boards.

Secondly, the Alamo may just in fact be haunted by ghosts or spirits of the deceased if you will. I was born and raised in Texas and have been to the Alamo several times when I was younger. I never had any sort of “experience” while there but that isn’t to say it doesn’t happen. Studies have been conducted on the site and to help clarify some of the previous disagreements on the subject…the Alamo was never in fact completely destroyed. It was in fact damaged severely prior to March of 1836 but repairs were in fact made as were latter repairs, years down the road, caused by the natural course of nature. Also, David Crockett in fact did NOT wear a coonskin hat or buckskin tunic or any of that trussed-up Hollywood costume garbage that one sees in movies, he also did NOT carry a large knife on his person. One of you mentioned seeing his “ghost” with a large knife in his pocket…there stands a very good chance that you are confusing him with Colonel James Bowie (commander of the Texan Volunteer Army at the Alamo, Lt Col William Barrett Travis was the commander of the Texas Army regulars) and you are either just confused or you are a terrible liar. That also goes for those of you who claim to have been out walking around the Alamo as if it sits across the street from you in your neighborhood. The Alamo is located in downtown San Antonio, surrounded by office buildings and businesses, so you might want to edit your stories somewhat. And yes, the Alamo was not just the actual chapel itself. The Alamo was the entire compound within a walled perimeter (which does not exist wholly intact today) and included several other buildings to go along with the chapel.

Now, I am done and will gladly climb off my soap box. However, some of you youngsters and you older, immature adults who should know better, need to read the guidelines for posting on this site before you blight the appearance of this website. Try to keep it clean if you will please. No one wants to hear the filth and dirtiness of your mouths. Thank you.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am being as honest with you as I can possibly be. I am a 54 year old grandmother who was born in Jacksonville, Texas, and grew up in Tyler, Texas, which is East Texas and lies between Dallas and Shreveport. When I was a very small child, approximately 5 years old, my father and grandmother took me to San Antonio to see the Alamo. This was probably the year of 1958. Mind you, I had never heard of the Alamo, and since I wasn’t school age, I had no clue about the battle that had taken place there. And I had never learned to read. I was just a little red haired freckled faced kid that knew that we were going there, and I just thought it was a place where tourists go, for whatever reason. As we walked across the manicured green grass lawn to the the big limestone building, I got a strange sense of “Deja Vu.” I looked up at my Daddy and said “This is where they shot the cannon balls at us.” He said “What? Who shot the cannonballs at you?” I told him Santa Anna and his army. I wasn’t frightened at all. As we walked through the big doors, I looked around at the high ceilings and smelled the smells there and saw the rifles hanging on the wall, the replica of the Bowie Knife under the glass case, and Davy Crockett’s coon skin hat, as well as many other artifacts and uniforms and such that as I recall were there. I started naming names. I started talking about Sam Houston and others. I said “Look Daddy, there is a knife like Jim Bowie’s and there is Davy Crockett’s coon skin cap!” as we walked through the big room and viewed all the things in the “museum.” As I walked around the big room, I looked at my grandma and my father and I stood there and cold chills shot through my body as I said, “I’ve been here before.” It scared my Daddy so bad that he told me to shut up. And I could hear him and my grandma whispering about what had just happened. It hurt my feelings, and I cried. I thought he was saying that I was lying. I Knew I wasn’t lying. And as we walked out into the courtyard, there was a small gift shop. I remember thinking how upset it made me. And I couldn’t help but blurt out “That ain’t supposed to be there.” “Why on earth would they put that there?” And as we walked around, I just soaked it all up like a little sponge. I remember feeling feelings of familiarity, sadness, even anger, all going through my body. We went home that night and my father told my mother what had happened and she was just in awe of it all. It scared her and she said “Well, that’s really strange.” As I got older and we later studied about my Texas heritage, the incident just kinda faded. I wasn’t really that interested in the history and the battle that took place there. I was a girl and I was in Junior High and I had my girlfriends and I was just starting to discover boys, so I kinda had other “fish to fry.” One incident that made my mother’s hair stand on end, was when I was having trouble with this girl who wanted to fight me. I was in the 9th grade. I was a sweet Christian girl, who had never been in a fight, other than with my sister, nor was I one to cause trouble. My parents were very strict, and that just wasn’t acceptable. This one girl who just kept on aggravating me and trying to stir up trouble was starting to really make me angry. One day, after her constant troublemaking, I just stood there and picked up a stick. I drew a line in the sand and I remember saying “Step across the line, and there’s gonna be trouble!” She did, and I had taken all I was gonna take. I remember wallowing around on the ground with her and just pulling her hair and she bit me and I bit her back. I got into some major trouble and got several licks by the principal’s board and a few chosen licks from my Daddy’s belt when I got home. I had never used that comment before (step across the line). I didn’t know where it came from. I also had Claustrophobia. I didn’t like the thought of tight places. I would use the phrase “I don’t like to be hemmed in here.” My father was a fireman. He would come home tired and sad and tell my Mother about how he had pulled some bodies off some mattress springs that had burned and all that was left was charred bodies and bones. I remember hearing that and thinking, “Oh God, I don’t want to EVER be in a fire and be burned.” It also to this day, just does me in when I hear how someone got cremated. I have told my kids to Never cremate my body, that I want to be buried. Even the thought of being buried just does me in. I have often prayed that the Lord would come back and take me to heaven during the resurection so that I wouldn’t have to be buried. Life has gone on, and nothing else eventful happened until a few years ago, when I was about 47. I kept having this repetative dream in which I was a little schoolboy and in my dream I looked around and I could see a room with several little twin beds with white cotton sheets on them. I knew that one belonged to me. Then I would walk into another adjoining room and I would go to school and I remember dipping this feather quilled pen into an inkwell. I remember a woman who was teaching me and my friends calling me “Billy.” I looked down and I had little blue-gray pants on, that were short pants, with buttons at the knee. In my dreams, I was always so sad and the dream would always end with me crying and I would have that “Startle reflex” like you are falling and then your body jerks, kind of like little babies do in their sleep. Anyway, one night, after just dreaming this dream, I was awake and I prayed, “Lord, I don’t want to dream this anymore. Why is this happening to me?”
I was starting to be open to the possibility that maybe I was reincarnated. I felt so weary in that moment and I fell back into a deep sleep. I dreamed that I walked back into the Alamo as an adult and I stood there, all alone. I looked around and asked God again, “Please tell me, Who was I?” I remember looking down at a large pink granite tombstone and it read, “WILLIAM BARRET TRAVIS.” As I stood there, I weeped. I knew right then and there, knew that it had been revealed to me.” All of a sudden, my body was being sucked down into that tombstone, which was like a flat footstone. And I woke up in my bed. I was in shock, but relieved, like the whole mystery was solved and that the torment was finally over. In school, I know we probably studied about this man, but I really don’t even recall it. I actually remember studying more about Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie. After this happened, I told my mother and she is Amazed and Totally believes me, cause she knows I wouldn’t lie. She feels like I have “Been around” before. She says it’s just too big of a coincidence, (all of the events that have taken place.) I now live in Northern Idaho. I moved when I was in my early twenties and when I was 25, I remember telling my husband, “I just know that I won’t live to be 26!” I experienced real anxiety when it was close to my 26th birthday and just knew I was gonna die. My birthday came and went and I didn’t know why I felt that way. When I was 47, after the reveal, I went to the library and went online and read everything I could get my hands on about Col. William Barret Travis. I read with so much interest his biography and his famous “letter.” So much of his biography was just “Greek” to me, as I didn’t really have any recallections about his life. But several things hit me like a TON OF BRICKS! Like the fact that he loved the gemstone “Tiger Eye,” which is one of my favorite stones. When I was in my early 20s, I asked my husband at a gemshop in Texas one day to buy me this pendant. It was “Tiger Eye.” I was just so drawn to it and I have since lost it. But I have an antique Tiger Eye ring my mother gave me. I love it. Also, I read that he was only 26 when he died. Boy, did cold chills hit me then! I never thought I’d make it that far. And I guess one of the things besides the revealing dream that I believe God gave me, is my Undying Love for my state of Texas. I have Texas pride that cannot be explained. Yes, I moved to Idaho many years ago, when our friends from Longview, Texas had previously moved up here and we visited them, so my husband could go big game hunting for elk and bear.
Ever since I have moved from Texas, I have just grieved for Texas. I miss my family of course, most of all, but as much as I love them, there is my Undying love of Texas. Now that I am grown, I would Love to go back to the Alamo and just “take it all in,” again. I have seen movies about the Alamo and I watch them, just hoping that it will “Spark” a memory for me. Some things do come back to me, like him “Drawing the line in the sand.” And I found it kinda strange, when I wanted to name my first born son “Travis”, but my husband’s cousin had already named his son Travis. I was so disappointed when my husband said that he didn’t want to anymore. And I have Always loved “Aunt Jemima Syrup.” I am a woodworker and I even made some Aunt Jemima’s with the little scarves on top of their heads. I am so drawn to these things. Guess what? William Barret Travis’s mother’s name was “Jemima.” Also, I find it ironic that my grandfather’s name is Charles and my Dad’s name is Edward. Charles Edward was William’s first child’s name. I thought that was too, ironic. I know that all this seems so strange, since I am a woman. And I am a mother and grandmother. But I have seen programs about reincarnation and many times we die one sex and come back another sex when we are born into the world again. I am not trying to influence anyone about my beliefs. I form my own beliefs and I expect Yall to do the same. But I guess quite possibly one of the most ironic things is how much I love any kind of Muzzleloader. I love loading the powder down the barrel with the ball and then seating the ball down into the rifle barrel with the greased patch. Not bragging, but I can out-shoot many of the men here in Idaho. I also have a love of guns. And every single time I go back to Texas I want to bring home every souviner I can get my hands on, especially ones with the state of Texas or the Texas flag. My refrigerator is just covered in Texas magnets. The other day, when I wanted to hang my new Texas flag up outside for 4th of July, my husband stated that the Idahoans might not like it. I looked him right in the eye and said “YOU TRAITOR!” “How can you feel that way?” When he told me to calm down, I almost felt hate for him. How on earth could Anybody not love a Texas flag? I am VERY defensive of Texas and I Always will be. Coincidence? You Decide. I am not here to get attention. I am just telling you my experiences. Now you know why my Mama calls me “William B.” I Will go back to the Alamo someday, if the Good Lord’s willing and the creek don’t rise!

i so think the Alamo is haunted;;
i didnt even know it was haunted til like a couple weeks ago…. which would explain the odd feeling i had when i went to the Alamo.
I live in Michigan and my aunt,uncle, & cousin live in Texas.
so we’ve gone like 3 or 4 times there.
Last time i went was for christmas and new years for 2007.
we went to san antonio[[the alamo]]
AND i SWEAR! i felt someone whisper in my ear saying” step a little closer or go home”
no1 was around and no1 was behind me. and a stick flew RIGHT PAST MY FACE. it wasnt windy at all until after i heard this whisper. it was like a moment of wind. ill probably go again with like a tape recorded and like a camera.

First of all.. do people not know that ghost don’t appear to everyone??? do they not know that just because a place is haunted doesn’t mean they and everyone that visits is going to encounter anything??? come on people just because you did not see anything do not assume it is not haunted. Get your head out of your ***!

I am a Texas native and have been to the Alamo several times. I believe in ghosts but have never had a ghostly experience at the Alamo at anytime that I have been there. I did feel a solemnity and a deep sadness that permeates the entire place. I have been there when the Alamo was full of tourists and also when the Alamo was nearly empty. I would be surprised to learn that given the historical facts behind the Alamo that it would not be haunted. Those men died horribly fighting for something they believed in..

Listen to all the people out there, talking about how the Alamo isn’t haunted. They only say things because they don’t know the truth, it’s easy to make a lie then telling a true story, to those people who talk about the ghost they seen and the true stories I believe that these men put up a battle only to save their land and they are still here today doing the same.

Aislin says:

I’ve been to the Alamo several times during my childhood and adult life. My first time there, I walked through those large wooden doors and froze. Yes, you can feel the solemnity of the atmosphere but to those who can feel a bit more than others, there’s something else there on the grounds. It’s ancient and angry. It creeped me out my first time and I went into hysterics. I wanted out. I didn’t want to be watched anymore. My parents called me names and said I was an embarrassment. However, this continued to happen each time I’ve gone to pay my respects. The last time I went was after I got married. My spouse had never been and wanted to sample Texas history. There’s a new gift shop there within the grounds and theoretically, ghosts or whatnot should not be sensed in a ‘new’ building one would think. No, that presence had saturated that building too. My spouse commented I looked like I was about to faint while I was there. It was strong, very overpowering. I talked to several people, and they’ve sensed the exact same thing. Near as I can tell, I believe that whatever is there was there before the Mission itself was constructed. Warning to you all – don’t go in looking for ghosts, just respect those who gave their lives for freedom. However, if you’re sensitive at all…you may want to avoid it.

Daniel Boone died at the battle, because someone shot him. And the Alamo was used as a prison as well, right.

Rita Barron, do you think that God allows reincarnation? I wonder if I was ever reincarnated. Because, sometimes I feel like I’ve been to a place before, but I just dismiss those feelings. And if I was reincarnated then how come I can’t remember any of my past lives. I hope when I die God will allow me to be reincarnated.

Hi I live in Mission Tx and have visited the Alamo many times. But on this one specific visit as I entered the Alamo I felt a vibe. Just looking around gave me goosebumps. Especially in the room that contains and happens to be the place were many people died. I noticed that there were writing on the walls. But I also felt as if someone or something was watching me. I never really saw a ghost of a soldier or anything but I still had the same feeling. For those of you who do not believe in ghost that is your opinion. But why critize the people that do believe? Well thats my story.

Rita Barron says:

June 27, 2008, 2:46 am

In answer to your question, Tiff, I can’t say for sure, because only God knows the answer to that. And I am no expert. I just know what has happened to me all my life.
I can only say what I experienced as a child and throughout my life. The bible says that in the end, it will all be revealed. Let’s put it this way, to me, it is the only thing that makes sense. I really believe we will know when we see the Lord in Heaven. I believe that He will reveal it to us. All of our questions will be probably be answered. Yours Truly,
Rita Barron

Thank you P your right the alamo was transpoted with what was left and spirits do not pack up and go aswell the ghost that person probably had a conversation with was prob a homeless person from the Sam Shelter around the corner so there are no ghost and theres no basement in the Alamo. But they were still entertaining comments

November 7, 2008, 5:02 pm

It’s real. I live in TX (granted, I live in Dallas, but I have been to the Alamo too many times to count). Of those times, there’s only one time something has happened.
The incident occured the last time I was in San Antonio. I was in town for the Aggie v. Penn State game, and it was around Christmas time, so the place had Christmas lights all aournd the riverwalk and the Alamo. It was nighttime and before me and my now husband were to hit up the riverwalk, we decided to go to the Alamo.
So we get into the Alamo and it’s all dark and surprisingly there’s very few people there. My now husband was reading all the information that they have posted out in the plaza area, while I trekked over to the room with all the flags.
There was only one other person in there leaning on the ground, hat off and pressed on his chest, and appeared to be praying. Being that he is oddly dressed and I have no tact, I stared at him like an idiot trying to figure out why he was dressed like that. He had the old western getup on. He noticed me and stood up and bowed to me saying “Howdy Ma’am.” I figured he was a tourguide or reinactor or something along those lines, so I mustered up a sarcastic “Howdy” back at him. He laughed at me, shook his head, and put his hat back on. And that’s when he walked off…and right through a wall.
I stood there in shock for a moment; then I ran like he** outta there. I’m not kidding…either that was a ghost, or that’s the best d*mn reinactor I’ve ever seen

soooo some of these storys cark me up!!! seriously ! I live in san antonio and go to the river walk all the time and each time we visit the alamo, i always try and look for ghosts and i’ve NEVER seen one!im sure its haunted but i DOUBT that a guy drank beer with a ghost of that a bird is possessed that sooo dumb!

tish says:

June 10, 2009, 7:43 am

I’ve been to the Alamo several times. I did not see anything but I can certainly tell you that the feeling there is very heavy. Reading the letter from Travis to his family brought tears to my eyes.

I would not be surprised if were haunted though, considering how many people died there. It’s really an amazing part of Texas history none the less and I recommend if you are in San Antonio that you visit this historical site.

I also do not understand why people who do not believe in ghosts or the spirit world come to look at these types of sites other than to troll everyone else. Meh….

i live in rio grande valley edinburg Texas if your from san antonio your probably familier with Mcallen its also in the rio grande valley i am 21 years old and have alot of friends that ended up attenting utsa(university of texas san antononio) so i often take a trip up there to san antonio to visit friends for summer vacation or things of that nature. Ive gone atleast ten times in my current and only vehicle. and one of these times i encountered a very strange peculier situation… i was sixteen then younger and more naive then i am currently. Me and about six of my buddys had spent the whole day drinking 40 oz bottles of steel reserve(a strong malt liqour)and then playing a small rock concert at some local venue near the aladome that was the whole reason for the trip my buddys were a band trying to branch out and we decided to make a trip out of a offer they got to play there. later that day after the show we decided to go the river walk in hopes of running into some cute girls maybe find a party or just hang out.. i did not know it then but that night i would witness something that up to this day im not sure how or why i saw what i did but i know i did. after walking a tiring amount of the river walk me and my buddy realized we had seperated from the rest of our friends so we figured they would be ready to leave by that time as well so we proceeded to find our way towards my car but while in search of where i had parked we suddenly realized we were lost i could not remember where i had parked my car and i was sure all my friends would be waiting for me there by that time it was already turning 12 or 1 at night and i could only remember i had parked near a giant hotel and THE ALAMO so we thought the smartest thing to do would be walking around this area over and over untill we came across my car the first time i walked by THE ALAMO i noticed it seemed very spooky, i happened to find a bum or what i thought was a bum at the entrence or very front of THE ALAMO it was not odd there happened to be quite alot of bums in that area downtown san antonio so i thought nothing of it and feeling desprete asked him how to get back to a familier area i was discribing to him he seemed nice enough and told me how to get back but as i followed his scetchy directions i felt they were only leading me even more off track and lost. the area got so much more darker and seemed more n more poverty stricken neiborhoods so i did the only smart thing despite having wasted aproximently two hours on this trail to get back to downtown i figured it was best to retrace every step and i did which finally brought me back to THE ALAMO around 3 at night furious about the directions i wanted to curse at the bum but noticed he was gone and in his place stood a tall black man in a securitys uniform i went up to him to convey my story of the false directions and the bum when he informed me that it was impossible because he was the security on gaurd and nobody was allowed on the premises after 10pm which he had been standing right there at the front entrence all night he told me he would have seen the bum or ran him off. spooked and completly tired i asked for his help he pointed me in the right direction and i eventually found my friends upset waiting at my car but ill never forget that bum n how the security told me that was impossible cause i know what i saw that night…

I have not read these comments yet – first wanted to leave my own. There are a lot of historical battlegrounds that are haunted. From the ones I’ve been to, the Alamo and Gettysburg are the two most haunted places I’ve noticed (all of this, of course, from my own perspective). Mom, grandma and I went to the Alamo several years ago. We were so affected by the hauntings we left early – definitely not trying to be involved with any of this ****. The sense of death is still very strong in this area, not only in the alamo, but in surrounding areas. In broad daylight we experienced soldiers patroling the grounds, conversations by the walls originating from thin air, intense feelings as though you are being watched from the inner cells, and there is also a knife in one of the display counters that belongs to a man named Bowie (i believe – not too familiar with TX history – I could be just confusing the man’s name with the popular knife of today) that is not all it seems to be. I don’t know if things have changed since I’ve been there, but I also vaguely remember a cell with very few amenities in there – I want to say it only consisted of a chair and MAYBE a bed/cot. Word of warning to be careful around there – I’m native american and our race is very in tune with spirits and there is definitely something in there that is not friendly to our people.

Well one night i went to go see Iron man with my friends at rivercenter It was the last showing so you know it was night. me and my friends were walking around down town for a while and then we decided to go see a place by the alamo we walked right in front of the alamo then one of my friends stopped and said look we looked there was no one. we asked him what he saw and he said he saw a man just standing there inside looking at him. So then we started to tell each others stories about what we have heard about the alamo. so we were sitting right in front of the alamo then from a distance we saw a black figure quickly ran across and then disappeared. we all looked at each other and was wondering what we saw but then we looked again and right there at the entrance inside we saw a figure of a man just standing there so we just got up and quickly walked a way. the next day came and we went to visit the alamo during the day and we asked them about the alamo and they said the they have people going to tell them that they saw someone standing at the entrance before and then disappeared.

i live in a town near the alamo. i havent been to the alamo in years. I am one of those peoples who are real intrested in ghost, so i am going to check it out in a couple of days. i am only 14 if u must know. I do believe that there is such thing as ghost when my sister was 6 she could talk to my great gramps but the thing is she never met him she never saw a pic of him and he died way before we were born. I too have had some visits with ghost that i wish not to repeat. she still haunts me too. I do remember though when i went to the alamo when i was in 4th grade, there was a lady starring out the window, and i was telling my friends to wave at her, but they had no clue what i was talking about apparently i was the only one to see her.

Lucifer says:

February 17, 2010, 6:26 am

If you go to the alamo and nothing happenes to you, it’s ok, the ghosts may be bored of you or something. Anyway, if you want to get killed by any ghosts, try sprinkling some holy water around, that would make them mad.
There is also a way of protecting yourself from ghosts, but don’t think you will need it as you will eventually die soon.

I’m not quite sure as to if this has been addressed, but “P”, who posted sometime during 2006, was quite wrong about the battle at the Alamo. There was actually battle that occurred within the walls of the Alamo. The very last attack ordered by Santa Anna consisted of Mexican troops surging toward the Alamo from every direction, and the troops. The 2004 movie “The Alamo” factually depicts this aspect of the battle. This can be found in any book based upon this event.
Maybe before attacking someone’s credibility, “P” should check out their facts.

Alii, Rebecca and P you are all screwed. I went to the Alamo and walked past west wall and heard a fiddle Playing.

I went there with my mom and I wasn’t suspecting that it would be haunted at all. I had just always been interested in the alamo. Anyways in the barracks (I think that’s wat its called) I saw a man in a blue uniform and he looked at me and just walked away. I thought it was an actor or something but when I looked he was gone. And my mom said she sensed something.

Katrina says:

October 2, 2010, 5:42 pm

I’ve been able to see things as long as I can remember, but when I went to the Alamo, all I felt was excitement that I was somewhere with historical value. No chills, no ghosts, no eerie feeling or feeling dread. I was actually quite disappointed. A lot of death happened there so of course you’re going to have a weird feeling. I actually went there thinking, “Oh great. It’s going to be like when I walk into a hospital.” but it wasn’t, it was like walking into my own house when I know that there’s a surprise waiting behind the door. I did get a LOT of great pictures though. Beautiful plants and fountains there.

Day four of our San Antonio vacation, we went to the Alamo, all was well until we came out of the gift shop going towards the church, my six year old became very upset! She was inconsolable crying that she felt weird there and didn’t want to sit on the benches because she felt very sad there, and inside the chapel she was still I’ll at ease.

I have been at the Alamo,and never seen no ghost.The only scary people i have seen are the people that go to visit the Alamo. Those are the ghost i’ve seen, only.And they are very scary,never been so scared.People just like to invent stories just to come on the news and be famous, thats it. They should go to church and pray for all those ghost they say they’ve seen. Istead of inventing so many lies,and scaring the little ones.Then they dont want to go back to the Alamo.The people that say they’ve seen ghost , those or the ones that need to go to church everyday.Cause they dont know what they’re talking about.They may have been very bad persons thats why they say they see ghost.And start to prey,so they wont see no more ghost.

ummm just because youve been to the alamo how ever many times and have not had any encounters with “ghosts” doesnt mean they’re not real. so with all do respect to you alls opinions, but dont doubt something thast there just because you havent had your experience.

I was at The Alamo a couple of months ago on a family vacation. I was taking photos with my digital camera with brother and sister and we decised to look around inside the mission where the three unknown defenders were unearthed. I was truely amazed by the historical site and what caught my attention was the vest of Davy Crockett. I was breathless when I saw it. I did attempt to pull out my camera (like I shouldn’t) but out of the ordinary, I felt this pressure pressing down on shoulder and when I turned around there was no one. I did got a little freaked out I still looked around and when my sister when to see the vest of Crockett, she later told me outside the mission that she felt a negative presence and a cold breeze when she was viewing the vest. I can’t say for sure The Alamo is a haunted site but I don’t want to sound crazy. I am a little convinced about the experience, but I don’t mess with that. But I did felt guilty about the camera attempt. If anyone does believe The Alamo is haunted, then me and my sis are the only ones.

I have been to the Alamo several times, never got a creepy feeling, never saw anything out of the ordinary. I am not saying you guys didn’t have experiences but I don’t know how anyone would have any experience with all the lines and all the people that are always around. I have also walked by it several times at night and I have never saw anything. I do believe in ghost but I never heard that the Alamo was haunted and I have never experienced it.

Can I ask all those disbelievers out there……..not trying to debate religion or science etc…….but how many of you believe in god… many of you believe that you are breathing clean oxygen… point is that just because some of you have not experienced ghosts or the heaviness feeling doesn’t mean that its not there….you can’t see the oxygen or god but you believe… why not ghosts… are entitled to your own opinions but then so are these people on here……I live in Australia and so have not visited the Alamo……but I try to keep an open mind on this subject…..people should not be judged because they have different beliefs to you…..some people are very open minded and if it happens it happens, but others are so closed minded that they think that because it hasn’t happened to them, therefore it can’t be true

This past Saturday 7/22/17 we visited the Alamo, I don’t believe or better yet didn’t believe in the super natural, I walked in the church along with other tourist, a few minutes after entering the church I started feeling something touching me in the back of my neck, so I rubbed my neck, and kept walking, then it started again, the same feeling I thought it was someone playing a joke on me, but the further I walked in the church, the more I felt something touching my neck, I thought maybe it was the airconditioner blowing on my neck, but everywhere I moved I felt the same feeling, I then left the church and walked to the museum, then it the feeling of something touching my neck became even more frequent, then I felt it move down my neck and started touching my legs, going from my ankles to my knees, I kept brushing my legs and my neck, finally I could take it anymore and just wanted to get out of there, as soon as walked out of the buildings, it stopped, it was the weirdest feeling ever. I not saying it was a ghost, but it was something, I not a real religious person, but when I left the premises, I walked across the street and saw a street preacher, he called my nephew and asked him if he could pray for him, and I then I asked if he could pray for me also. Just thought I should share this because it was really a weird feeling, and I’m such a skeptic but there was something there, in those 2 buildings that was touching me.
