From the outside, this place looks like an average manor house from the early 20th Century. Truth be told, the history of Midnight Manor will leave one’s skin crawling. The story about to unfold is an actual account of the monstrous acts that occurred in this home.
In 1900, Midnight Manor, in Mansfield, Texas was owned by the Morbid family. Dr. Morbid’s wife, Mary, and 2 children, Emily and Alex were all dying from an unknown sickness. In response, Dr. Morbid started performing experiments on his patients and manor staff to find a cure for this sickness and one by one, they began disappearing. Dr. Morbid was hiding the dead bodies throughout his home both inside and out. Some say that Dr. Morbid built secret doors and passageways throughout his mansion to hide the evidence of his monstrous acts. Because he was unable to find a cure for his wife and children, they all perished in October of 1902. Dr. Morbid lived at Midnight Manor for another 31 years until he perished alone and insane in 1932, but his body has never been found and some say he is still alive.
The Mansfield authorities have still never discovered some 20 missing persons that disappeared from 1900 to 1930. The manor sat vacant for over 75 years, when the Texas State Historical Society deemed it a state historical landmark. Midnight Manor was opened to the public in 2007. Within the first month, numerous encounters with spirits were reported and the National Ghost Hunters Association was called in to investigate. The N.G.H.A. recorded at least 15 spiritual encounters in the manor.
Still, spirits haunt Midnight Manor and no bodies have ever been discovered. The manor has now been re-opened for public tours.
If you dare, come to Mansfield, Texas and see Midnight Manor and experience a real haunted house at TERRORPLEX!
