Are you familiar with the allegedly haunted Bowers Mansion in Palestine?

I confess, I was not. But after learning a bit more about the history, I'm fascinated. Built in 1878 not far from downtown Palestine, the Bowers Mansion is considered one of the most historic, and infamous, places in East Texas.

It was the setting for tragedy in the 1950's when the then-owner, Mr. Bowers, murdered his wife Mary. Then, when authorities showed up at the mansion, he committed suicide. Some believe their spirits still reside in the home.

But it's not just the spirits of the Bowers that some suspect may still be on the 140-year-old property.

There were several others who also died here over the course of the home's long history.

In addition to the mansion itself, the property also had other building that will be accessed on the day of the inaugural ghost hunt. In fact, only the slave quarters are off-limits. Why? We're not sure.
