Built in 1867 on the historic site of the 1842 Battle of Salado, Victoria’s Black Swan Inn is an elegant two story Greek Revival style plantation home. The house sits on a grassy knoll overlooking the Salado Creek in San Antonio.
On September 18, 1842 General Adrian Woll, Sam Houston and his men massacred more than 60 Mexican soldiers during the bloody Battle of Salado. Their bodies were left to rot where they fell. Only one Texan lost his life, Steven Jett, during the battle. There is one report of someone actually witnessing a skirmish between Mexican and Texan soldiers that resembled some sort of reenactment. There have been sightings of a ghostly confederate soldier near the gazebo in front of Victoria’s Black Swan Inn.
Spirits young and old are said to linger here, and reports include accounts of aggressive spirits within the barn and stable area. There is also a child spirit here who likes to play inside the house and jump on beds. Sebastian, the original owner of the home, is also said to reside inside the inn.
