The Historic Bowers Mansion, Palestine, TX
Built 1878, and located just a stone's throw away from downtown Palestine TX, lies one of the city's most historic and infamous mansions.
This Victorian home and National Texas Historic Landmark has a deep history, with stories of death, murder, and suicide.
Back in the 1950's the then-owner Mr. Bowers, murdered his wife Mary. As the police made their way up the path to enter the home, Mr. Bowers committed suicide. It's believed that their spirits still linger, as well as several others who took their last breath here over the years.
In addition to the 140+ year old home itself, there are several other buildings on the grounds, some of which are accessible, the slave quarters is the only building that cannot be accessed.
