Minter Mansion

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Minter Mansion

This historic mansion is now an architectural firm. In recent times, employees began reporting paranormal activity, including a ghostly shade, faces peering out of the second floor of the building and a ghostly woman known as ‘Annie’. The owner dug a little deeper into these reports, and found that these reports originated back in the 1970’s, when a pair of workmen guarding the building fled in fright after a heavy oak door slammed shut of its own accord.

  1. Regarding your Minter mansion story, it’s woefully incorrect. It was me and a college buddy on the renovation team sleeping in the home the night a poltergeist ripped up the floorboards by slamming a bedroom door shut. The floor had buckled up over the years, and could not be closed by any human strength.The floor was badly damaged. We awakened to the terrible roar of flooring being shredded.

  2. I live in Abilene as a 9 year old in the late 60s. The house was boarded up and would break in to venture around as young boys would. The story is the Minters owned a hardware store and the father hung one of his kids out one of the upstairs windows. Pretty spooky place ! And yes it is haunted. I can’t believe we had the balls to play there.
