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.

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

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

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.

roxanne says:

Hobo says:

February 16, 2010, 6:26 pm

I remember i went there once and there was a man with a raccoon hat looking out the window. He had a rifle with him and he shot out the window a few times. A few people around me were killed and then i was shot too. I was eating a burger at the time and i dropped it while i was dying. 🙂

Lucifer says:

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. When I went to check, there was a man with a joyful grin on his face and I waved to him, he waved back. I walked up to shake his hand and he looked startled and dissapeared… I wet my pants

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.

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.

I was in the long barricks and felt someone there. And something wouldn’t let 2 ladies out that were watching the film, even tho it had no lock. When I got mad and got up to help, it suddenly opened by itself.

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.

Dorothy says:

I went to alamo in 2009 or 2010 I hadn’t experienced anything haunted or parenormal while I was there seeing the sites but I am positive it’s haunted

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.
