Roma Historic Plaza

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Roma Historic Plaza

The Roma Historic District in Roma, Texas preserves an intact example of a border town in the lower Rio Grande valley. The town was an important port and transshipment point on the Rio Grande from 1829 to the 1880s.

The apparition of a beautiful girl in a flowing white dress has been seen in the plaza area outside the church late at night. Crying is also heard when no one is around.

  1. La LLorona is alive and well in Roma? Man, she really does travel, I have heard that she frequents San Antonio, the Valley (McAlllen,Weslaco,Brownsville etc.) Regardless, she must have a ton of stock invested in tissue paper for all of the crying she does. lol!

  2. As a former Roma Police Officer, I worked night shift many times. We patrolled that area due to a large amount of illegals (migrants) crossing the border illegally. One night me and another officer were stationary in front of the city hall (a street south of the church) at approximately 1 or 2am. He was in his patrol unit and I was on mine. We were talking about a case I had assisted him earlier that shift when I saw a black flowing shadow next the his front passenger window going toward the back of the unit. I followed the shadow with my eyes. My partner asked me what’s wrong. I immediately got off my unit to yelled at him “un mojado”(illegal immigrated) and he got off his unit following me. We both looked around the units and the surrounding areas but didn’t find anyone. I am a skeptical person but that night I know I saw something n I’m the type of person that I will look for something until I find it. That night we spend a little over an hour try to find the “illegal alien” but we never found anything. To this day I still think what could that black shadow be? A plastic bag that flew away? Idk but it was weird
