Default Haunted in San Antonio

I came across this interesting video depicting some of the "ghost" stories of San Antonio.


YouTube - Haunted in San Antonio

Mentioned are the Donkey Lady, La Llorona, the Haunted Rail Tracks, and an old insane asylum. Creeeeepy.

What an awesome short piece! Does anybody know exactly where that insane asylum is located at? I grew up and lived on the southside for 20+ years and never heard of it. That would be an awesome place to go with friends on Halloween night. Take some sleeping bags, cold beer and you have a very creepy evening. Spooky!

That insane asylum looks like some of the building at Stinston airport but I've never seen that particular building. Ive lived in SA all my life and on the side side since 76 and I dont think Ive heard of an insane asylum. Remember midget mansion and the devil house. That was on Ashely Rd next to Stinson but burned down sometime in the 90s.
Sadly the Donkey Lady Bridge is no longer there. Its like a four lane road now that was made for the Toyota.

It's actually a few minutes from the ghost tracks. There's a jail or something right by there.

I'm not showing this to my husband...'cuz he'll drag me out there. ;-) He loves stuff like this but it creeps me out.

And that was a very well done short piece.

I remember that house down Ashley Rd. I think they had two massive palm trees in the front yard that led to the front door. I recall that entrance to the house, the front door was about three feet above the front porch but there were no stairs that led up to it.

True story about this place...When I was younger my father took us by that house on Halloween night. It was maybe '86 or something. A curtain to one of the front rooms was open and a blue light was on in the room. That wasn't freaky but what we saw was. It seemed that there was a mattress on the floor and a young kid was jumping on it. We stopped the car in front of the house (from the street of course) and looked. When my father realized what he saw he sped off. That kinda spooked him I figure.

Yep thats the place. And it had 2 windows on either side of the door with burglar bars. I heard the story was that the mother did not want her children to get out of the house, hence the windows with bars and no steps. I remember a girl I went to school with actually lived there. I would say that was early 90s or so then of course it burned down.
