The Hill House Manor of Texas
Built in the mid-1850s, this home sits in Gainesville Texas, and is surrounded by trees in what seems to be a quiet neighborhood. This home having a vague history and a very unique floor plan, was able to gain popularity in 2004, when the new owner Linda Hill purchased the property. No records could be found on who built the home, so this home became known as the Hill House Manor. The story goes that back in the day when this house was used as a brothel two men got into a fight over a prostitute, that ended with one murdering the other leaving this room in a bloody massacre and staining this floor and walls with the hatred and jealousy of one man. This violent act is what many think that has given this the haunted hostile vibe in this part of the manner. Maybe it was just me but to be honest I could feel something that did not seem right by being around this room.

The Bonnie and Clyde abandoned " OUTLAW STATION " - History
Join me as we learn the history of "The Outlaw Station" in Glen Rose Tx. Where Bonnie and Clyde ran moonshine business out of the back of the store. This abandoned building has just been put on the market to sell. This building was built sometime in the 1920's. This building was part of the prohibition era. The owner at the time Ed Young built it to rival the local White Rock Roadhouse which was next door. The white Rock Roadhouse was a roadhouse and also said to be a grocery store for a illegally sold moonshine. The building finally was demolished around 2015 due to being unsafe. There is not much else documented after the sell of the place, but it seems from what little I could gather it was turned into a legit gas station and small grocery store sometime in the 50's and 60's. then not too long after that shut it doors and has been sitting abandoned ever sense. 🗨 What is your favorite part about this video?
