Victoria's Black Swan Inn (Northeast San Antonio)

"Built in the late 19th century on the site of a battlefield where Texans fought to maintain the independence of their short-lived republic, the mansion now known as Victoria's Black Swan Inn is one of the most historic and haunted places in San Antonio. It is also one of the most famous sites of paranormal activity in the area, has been featured in numerous books, articles, and television programs on the paranormal, and is a popular venue for ghosthunting groups. One of those is the local San Antonio Ghost Hunters, and I had an opportunity to visit the inn for the first time in June 2014 as part of an overnight investigation with them." 

That is the opening paragraph for my chapter on the amazing and incredibly haunted Victoria's Black Swan Inn that will be appearing in Ghosthunting San Antonio, Austin, and Texas Hill Country! As things stand now, this is the largest chapter in the book and details both its history and my experiences at it.
