Berclair Mansion

The Berclair Mansion was built in 1936 and is a 22 room mansion located in Berclair, Texas (between Goliad and Beeville, Texas). For the latter half of the 20th century the mansion was occupied off and on by a lone, eccentric woman. The home was reportedly already haunted before her birth. As the last member of her family, she lived there alone with locals working as maids and house workers. The locals would not work in the mansion at night and required a separate building be made on the grounds for them to sleep in. During the day, maids reported hearing footsteps, talking in empty rooms, doors slamming for no reason and unexplainable chills. They did not talk about what happened at night.

Extended relatives of the Berclair Family donated the estate to the Beeville Art Association. The association provides tours for a fee on the last Sunday of each month from 2 to 4 pm. The tours focus on antiques instead of stories about haunting. Some of the antiques date back to the 17th century.
