The Onion house haunting San Antonio Texas

The Onion House got its name from Judge John Onion who purchased the house in the 1930s . The building itself was made with limestone and was built and owned at the time by Joseph Huebner who had horses and a stagecoach stop for people to stop by.

The location is on Bandera and Grissom by a hotel. You can't miss it since its right off the Bandera highway. I know at one time the historical society were making repairs to reopen the house as a historic museum but vandals broke in and spray painted the inside of the house. The historic society tried to raise funds but it seems the project had been abandoned. Its my hope there were be enough funds to fix what needs fixing to maybe open it to the public.

Update: December 23,2009

I edited the story I heard from a friend of mine so I took the story off completely. What is know is people who had once occupied the building claim there are ghosts that occupy it. Strange sounds of glass shattering when there is none there. To read more on the Onion house two individuals have provided some insight to the real story of the Old Onion house on Helotes. Thank for those who shared their story.

Just FYI the Onion house is gated so its not like you can just walk in and explore. At one time these historic sites were accessible to explore but as you know vandals have to leave their mark and ruin it for the rest of us who want to check out places like this.

The good news is that there is a historic marker in front of the building so I plan to this week to take a photo of it and post it on my haunted blog for you to check out. So keep looking ok?

I did find this interesting link of someone who happened to stay at the hotel next to the Onion house community board. This is an external link.

Photos I took around 2008 of the Onion House

Ghost Tracks in San Antonio Video

Train Tracks Video

Here is another video on the train tracks haunting. Just a warning if you decide to head out to the train tracks, you are not allowed to park in the middle of the train tracks. To many people do this so you may be ticketed. What you can do is drive by the location. The haunted tracks are on the South Side of San Antonio Texas. I will provide the address sometime next week.
