Outdoor Haunts:

Stagecoach Stop Area: Turning of wagon wheels and horses heard.
Stage coaches, horses, and Native Americans seen.

Side of House (near Library): 

At the leaning tree some have seen a tall, lean older man in a dark suit with a whip. Others feel an ominous presence.  The investigators* sense that he used to beat people and possibly hang them there.
*”The investigators” are the Paranormal Investigators, Denise, Ray Jay, and Brian. The latter work for the Ghost Hunters Show

The Library

The Library

Library, Parlor, Foyer & Solarium: 

This is the oldest portion of the house and 1st building on the property, dating back over 200 years.  A trap door leads to a small cavern below the Library.  A local historian said folks were hidden there during the underground railraod days! Miss Patrice feels it was a place to hide from the Native Americans, as the ranch sits on the highest land in San Antonio, the Native's Ceremonial grounds!

When Miss Patrice acquired the property, she saw people in the library sitting in rows against the walls, dressed in early 1800’s fashion, wearing hats.  There was no furniture in the room!        Since then, there is always someone, some spirit, in there.  Start to communicate with them and the temperature will change, as happened with the investigators!

A lady is often seen walking between the foyer and library.  Investigators heard the rustle of her skirts!  One Haunted Mansion Sleepover guest "saw Miss Patrice leaving the Library!"

The Solarium

The Solarium

  Alas, Miss Patrice was not there!!

Sometimes, a baby is heard crying in all 4 rooms within this area.    This was also reported by the investigators!

Guests taking advantage of the "Sleeping Bag" overnite rate, staying in the Solarium, reported seeing "Naked men" running through the Atrium.  Native American spirits are seen and felt regularly here!

The Carriage House

The Carriage House

The Carriage House

In the 1800’s it was the stable.  Folks who stay there now hear stagecoaches and horses! Sometimes the lights will flicker.  The investigators said they heard the stagecoach wheels.  Then, their tape fast forwarded.  When they communicated with the spirit, the tape fast forwarded again!     One guest said a man passed by the kitchen window.  She went out to see him but no one was there!

Music Room Spirit 

Music Room Spirit

Music Room Spirit

The man in the music room is a resident ghost.  He is heard playing Chopin on the baby grand on occassion!   At least three spirits reside in the main house.   Others are seen and felt, both indoors and outdoors. Some are repeatedly described the same, in the same places, inside and outdside.

Who will you meet at the Jackson Ranch?

Michael's Room

       This room is not part of the tour.  It is available for overnights only. Though how much you'll sleep is the question!  Michael likes to play with you. He may open and close the door all night long, flicker the lights, make the ceiling fan spin, change the temperature, and so on.  Some experiences are the same for all, but others have different tales to tell of spending the night with Michael!
