Port Isabel Cemetery began with workers on El Fronton de Santa Isabel Ranch since the 1840s, although the oldest gravestones that still stand are from the 1880s. It became a Catholic cemetery (French Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate) in 1849, but folks of all faiths are buried here. The apparition of a little boy is said to wander throughout the cemetery.

  1. I was raised on South Padre island, and I remember many apparitions growing up, and my group of friends always daring one or another to spend the night on cemetery grounds, which I’ve done more than I care to share.
