History:

Fort Lipantitlan was used by the Mexicans during the early- and mid-1800s. The fort is haunted by “the Lady in Green”, the wife of Marcelino Garcia. After being wounded during a battle with the Texans, Garcia laid dying in bed, only to see the ghost of his wife at his bedside for several days, even though she was alive, living in Mexico City.

The Lady in Green continued to appear even after Garcia died, and she did so for twenty-five years. It wasn’t until 1860 that she stopped making her appearances, when Garcia’s wife died.
