Comment by Jade: Now that area is some sort of doctors offices….
Comment by Putz: This house was next to ''The Bird Lady's'' house Midge Erskine. The lady took care of wounded and injured birds for many years. I have no idea about the house on the corner, but Midge never mentioned anything about it to me. She had Eagles, hawks, and many other birds of prey and when we would go rabbit hunting, we would take her the ones we shot, to feed her birds with.
The (pink colored) house behind it became a training center for German shepherds, as the owner had left it just for that purpose. Midges house and the one on the corner were torn down for the medical center which has replaced it. I have lived here for 60+ years and never heard of it being haunted.
The house across the street (Golf Course... On the corner)was owned by the stupid sheriff Dallas Smith, known to be a wife beater, beat up arrestees before taking them to jail, being a known liar and thief as a DPS officer in the 70's and 80's.
The corner house (across Midkiff was owned by Joe Henderson Sr. (co-owner of Mustang Mud Corp), and the place where the 2 condos it (catty cornered from it on midkiff and Golf Course) used to be a single residence owned by BeBe (I forget) who for years was the secretary of the Midland Community Theater.
The turner mansion (museum) is another story. This is where the ''legend'' of the dog with the murdered owners killer's finger found in it's throat, originated. It is not true, and it was a manhunt that eventually caught the killer who was sentenced to death, and then released after serving only 20 years, saying he was ''redeemed'' and was a preacher. It is said that Mr. Turner haunts his mansion.
Comment by Hill: If you are talking about the house on the corner of golf course and Garfield caddy corner from the fire station they moved that house out by a cleachy pit by Midkiff and I20. We used to ride horses out there and watched them move it out there. I wonder if it still has activity.
Comment by anonymous: I grew up hearing the same story about the special needs girl. We actually walked around the property and it was pretty creepy.
Comment by T: Midge Erskines Bird Lady house is still on golf course, not torn down. They changed so much in the area. It's easy to think it was further down where the medical center is, but it's west. I'm a researcher good with census records and deeds and finding lost friends and family. I think researching into places like these would be fun. Womensan @ aol. com.
