The city of San Antonio has its fair share of haunted locations.
From public buildings to ancient houses, the city has a long standing history that has led to lingering spirits.
But some of the most haunted places are not what you may think.
The Ghost Child
Updated 9/24/2019 – Enter Spanish Main Apartments.
From the outside, this complex is unassuming, inexpensive housing for the working individual.
But this complex is also home to something quite supernatural.
Those who have lived there have claimed to have seen the ghost of a little boy hanging around Spanish Main.
Some have stated the boy looks so normal that they will stop to ask him if he is lost.
Phillip’s (Names changed by request) girlfriend had just moved into the complex when he first heard about the ghostly boy.
“I’m not sure why, but the idea made me really excited and eager to go over there,” he recalled.
“I guess it’s because I have never been at a place where it’s been declared as haunted.
I wanted to see this little boy everyone was talking about.
“So when my girlfriend said I could come over and see her new place, I hopped right to it.
She found me, twenty minutes after I had arrived, wandering around the complex,” he laughed.
“‘What are you doing?’ she cried.
‘I’m looking for the ghost boy!’ I told her.
“After that, I would arrive early at her place and leave late, making rounds of the complex before I went to see her or I left to go home.
Each and every time, I never saw anything.
Until the night I did.
Another Haunted San Antonio Location?
“My girlfriend and I had gotten into a fight about something stupid.
Still, I was mad and I decided that the best thing to do was just go home so we could both cool off.
So I left her place and went to the parking lot, getting soaked in a heavy down pour as I did so.
“I got into my car and started the engine.
I was about to put it into gear when I felt like somebody was watching me from the second story of the complex.
Thinking perhaps it was my girlfriend wanting to making up, I looked up at the outdoor hallway.
“Through the rain I saw this young boy, watching me with his hands on the balcony.
He didn’t look frightened or even scary.
He just stood there, watching like an ordinary curious kid would.
“I waved at him, because I wasn’t sure what else to do.
And that’s when I saw him clamber onto the railing.
I was so scared that he was going to fall, and I jumped out of my car and started running across the parking lot to tell him to get down.
“But as I got halfway there, I saw him slip and begin to fall.
I yelled, running through the puddles.
But as his body began to fall, it just…disappeared into the heavy downpour,” Philip whispered, looking upset.
“My girlfriend insists that it was just the rain playing tricks on me, because no other witnesses have seen the boy in the rain.
But I’m not convinced.
There are a lot of places in San Antonio that are haunted, and Spanish Main happens to be one of them.”
