Founded and built by the brave Texas Rangers who fought for the state's independence, Seguin is a picturesque town with a chilling history. The defensive wall around the city is said to also keep souls from leaving. Locals whisper tales of a headless soldier roaming the streets at night, searching for his remains. The town square, now a hub of activity and commerce, once hosted public hangings and beatings. Lake McQueeny is known for its beauty, but a lost spirit wails along the shores to warn would-be drowning victims. Discover these and other stories from the shadows of Seguin's past with author Erin O. Wallace.

MYSTERIES OF THE MAGNOLIA HOTEL

Please read before purchasing a ticket!
It's summer and the unrestored side does not have air conditioning. It's gonna be hot so dress accordingly and bring bottled water. Your ticket purchase is a license to Enter at Your Own Risk and you Waive/Release any claim or injury liability to Magnolia Hotel Tours, Ghedi Properties LLC and James and Erin Ghedi. The hotel tour does go up a flight of stairs so please be aware of this. No children under 10 are allowed to participate (we speak of very spooky stuff). All children MUST be accompanied by an adult throughout the entire tour, so no drop offs. Although there is no videoing or audio recording allowed we encourage still pictures. Leave your purses and backpacks at home, it's a two hour tour and they get heavy. No food or alcoholic beverages, and no smoking allowed. We do recommend bringing bottle water. No noise making paranormal equipment allowed but YES bring those K2 meters along. Please mute your phone before entering, there's nothing worse that having a spirit come forward then someone's phone rings. Absolutely NO refunds and NO rescheduling for ANY reason (again, no matter what the reasons are). Tickets may though be transferred for the date purchased to another guest upon advance notification to the owners. Tours go on rain or shine. Save your alcohol drinking for after the tour please. Any intoxicated guests will be asked to leave. Just an FYI, the unrestored side of the tour does not have electricity, so it is hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Costumed people do not jump out at you on our tour. This is a history and paranormal experience not a Halloween spook show. Our spirits have been known to come forward sometimes to greet our guests, so keep this in mind.

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, this tour will leave you in awe. Come walk along side the hotel owner/paranormal author, Erin O Wallace-Ghedi as she leads you from room to room of this massive 7,000 sq. ft two-story building. Throughout the entire 2 hour tour, you will discover the history and haunting of this once active 1850 frontier hotel, stagecoach stop, jail, shelter from Comanche attacks, brothel, and even a speakeasy. As you roam through Texas' most famous haunted hotel, you will hear stories of its former owners and visitors who once resided there (and still do). Paranormal activity has been known to happen along the tour, so it is not recommended for the weak of heart.
