The infamous Midget mansion in San Antonio Texas

When I was a kid my uncles told stories of their adventures when they went to what was left of the Midget mansion in the early 80s.

The Midget Mansion story:

A house built in the 1900s by a wealthy man of smaller statue built the place for his wife and his two children. Murdered his wife and kids. No longer the location and some say its where the new Lowes building is by Callaghan. The location was condemned and torned down in the early 80-90s. Although the location seems to vary but another source has told me that the mansion that once stood was burned to the ground and an apt complex sits on the very property.  According to my source the apartment complex had a high turn over .

Although just stories, there isn't much record of a wealthy little person with family living on the property. Some have suggested what people had seen on the front was a small statute and people at that time made an assumption that little people lived there. In the early 1900 it was popular to see a small statue (jockey) in front of these wealthy homes. This may be where the legend got its going that little people once lived there.

What was for sure is that the location was a beautiful historic building which fell under hard times.

In the early 80s it was said when the building was abandoned that satanic rituals would take place there. Not confirmed but there were many people who trespassed within the property which at the time was owned.
