Oh great man… yeah blame the Spaniards for rape and murder. Way to go man, way to go. If it sounds like BS, it probably is.

To find the govenors mansion…. its really easy. For those who know where La Villita is…. yeah, its there. but for those who don’t… if your on the riverwalk… when you pass the one area that looks like it would be used as a stage with the opposite side being where the audience would sit (of course with the river in the middle)you exit through the little entrance on the audience side and go straight, and if you look around, i’m sure you’ll find a huge building that would look like it would be the govenors mansion. its really not hard to find, unless you dont know what you’re doing…. if you get lost, just ask where La Villita is, and i’m sure you’ll be able to find it from there

How Can you tell if the women was raped if they found a skeleton ???? I have heard of Haunted Hotels in San Antino but not this. I don’t believe this story one bit. ITS FAKE!!!!

I used to live in San Antonio and the scariest thing I have seen is the spelling and grammer on this blog.

If it’s San Antonio, I can believe it. There’s places in that city I can’t go to. Spirits are very much ill at ease. Considering the history of the grounds, it’s not surprising.

Looks like every post on here should be deleted. I think if you are going to own a computer you should atleast have a High School Diploma and not a G.E.D. equivalent.

Legend goes like this – A very young girl fell down the well and was never found. Several years later the woman(servant) was attacked and killed by Spanish soldiers who threw HER in the well. When she was foundin the well, the little girl’s bones were also found. The little girl’s bones were buried in the wall in the chapel. Both are said to haunt the mansion. Behind the mansion is one of two old hanging trees still in San Antonio

I wanted to set the record straight, I work at the SPG and KNOW the FACTS of the stroy and plus I am tired of hearing the same questions over and over. There was no one buried in the walls, and the body was of a small infant, no more than 6 months old. I have seen the excavation records from back in the 1960/70′s. The ONLY reason people believe that someone is buried in the wall, is from the 1930′s when they restored the old building, the architect added a window so that museum visitors could see the construction of one of the first adobe homes here in San Antonio. Please find out the facts before you start spreading more stories. Thanks.

The body of an infant was found in the courtyard next to the SPG, and no there were no hanging trees!! PLease stop spreading that rumor, its awful and untrue (JR). And no, pinatas were not invented here either. I have seen documented photographs from the restoration where there are no trees in the back courtyard, think if you water a tree everyday for 80 years, how big do you think that tree would be? The trees around city hall were planted a little over a 100 yrs ago. If you come and visit, one of the museum staff will kindly explain and show you documented proof.
