One afternoon I took my nephew by the mansion as he loved haunted things. I pulled in to the driveway at the end of the street and he got out and walked around the house (I remained in the car). When he got back he stated that he wanted to come back after dark. What he didn’t realize was that I was unable to get the car started. It took about 5 minutes before it would start. Later that night my nephew and I along with my son (not a believer in ghosts) and his girlfriend went back to the mansion. This time I parked across the street. My nephew got out of the car and when my son realized I wasn’t getting out he stayed in also. My nephew walked around the outside of the house again. While we were waiting we were watching for him at the top of the driveway. After about 10 minutes we saw him just standing there not moving. Then all of a sudden he came running toward the car and jumped in and told us to drive off. We drove a few miles away with my nephew babbling about someone named Loretta in the yard that kept telling him to come visit her. We stopped and my son and I looked at each other and realized that my nephew was wearing a black t-shirting not a white one like we saw at the top of the driveway. To this day my son gets shaken up when anyone talks about Pharr Mansion.
