Here is a website about it. The Governor’s Palace is located right behind San Fernando Cathedral in the heart of downtown San Antonio.

I have heard of the Goveners Palace which is by the Alamo but I have never heard of the Governors Mansion. Interesting story. I have heard similiar stories when an old building is remodeled it can provoke the dead that once lived there.

Okay, guys look. The reason they knew she was raped was because they get anthropologists, hope i spelled it right.. and they examine the pelvis and check for scraped and such. And maybe they DIDN’T notice there were being haunted before. Maybe they thought it was just nothing, and then when the body was exhumed, they were more alert. Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. -It:)

this mansion is located in downtown San Antonio- if you ever go look around for signs (there everywhere) that point you to major landmarks- they should tell you. I’ve lived here all my life and found the mansion to be rather less impresive than its title, but then again this kind of home would have been pretty extravagant for the time period. also there is a tree in the courtyard called ‘the tree of sarrows’ where many souldures were hung- the tree itself over time has changed. all over it the tree trunk has shapes of faces with bulging eyes, as if the imprint of the dead were coming through. its frightening. If your coming to San Antonio i suggest visiting this place as well as the Menger Hotel- located next to the Alamo (which is also haunted by the way). go ahead look up stories about the Menger! its absolutly creepy, but very beautiful. you can even walk around its halls and i swear you’re going to feel like your being followed or watched. I sugest going with a friend- I didnt and really wish i had. Scary!

the truth about the woman in question was long ago collaborated by a dying man, (soldier during the event), who had participated in the brutal rape and murder, wishing to clear his conscience.

Can i tell you a secret?……..I see dead women1 But seriously what signs do they have that this place is haunted as I and my team are considering this place to investigate? Signs include cold spots, warm spots, a feeling you didn’t have upon entrance.

I have been to this mansion and have discovered that the hunting is true. No lie, i went to the mansion cause i was hired to rake leaves and every time i made a pile the leaves would scatter and there was NO WIND. Also, i have seen strange shadows lurking near the windows. It was really creepy

Sorry, but anthropologists (or anyone else) cannot determine rape when all they have are skeletal remains. If there were scrape marks on the pelvic bones she must have been raped by a saber saw. I would hang around and terrorize everyone for eternity if that happened to me.

i live in sa now. the story is real but i dont belive that she started haunting after the bones were revealed maybe she had no reson to haunt anything or anyone untill her bones were revealed then she had perfect reson to start, maybe she wished to be buried on the property and when they moved he bones off the property to a cemetery she was angry. thats my theory. if you want to talk about it email me at

The govenors palace is in main plaza in downtown san antonio. As far the haunting. So long as the last rites were performed then no she wouldnt haunt until the burial location was disturbed
