I write this story from my coming booklet series called the “Rattler Mission Series”!!
The “Wild West” held many untold secrets of fortunes made and fortunes lost.
One such story that comes to mind this Holiday is of the famious Mills Mansion.
Attorney Melvin Mills arrived into the West from back east to sell railroad tools and equipment.
With the railroad pushing forward he made quite the wealth from this.
He built a mansion in Springer called the Mills Mansion. This is where he entertained
all kinds of wealthy and politically influencial people.
But hid real fortune came when He built an Empire on
the Canadian River of trees, vegatables and fruits with blood for the unfortunant
souls that he judged lesser then himself.
In 1904 the Floods came, and wiped out all that Melvin Mills had. He became even homeless.
selling the mansion to Thomas Catron his partner.
He asked to be allowed to livein the Mansion until his death.
That he did, but the ghostly cries still remain
and those he persecuted would not help him.
Melvin Mills died in that Mansion…it told when you go through it that
a cold chill goes right through you!! The walking dead?
Maybe Melvin got stuck in time!!!
Where is this mystery lady from Kansas
that is suppose to now own the Mills Mansion?
Did she find the matching heart rocks that Melvin Mills
left for the lady he so loved after she left him?
I been in this mansion
and yes the hairs seem to craw during the sunset hours..
Happy Halloween!! The Colonel Rocks!! 😉
