We are packing our bags and heading into the time machine so we can zip ourselves back to the 18th century. We’re headed to present-day Texas which was then Papaya territory—we don’t mean the tropical fruit that smells like vomit, but rather a tribe of indigenous hunter gathers.
The Papayans lived around what is now called the San Antonio River, and in 1731, a group of people all the way from the Canary island with a promise from the King of Spain that they could build a church there. Today we’re going to try and understand why they thought this was a good idea, and how the church that they would eventually build what would become one of the most haunted landmarks in America.
The Lady Dicks dick-tect history, mystery and paranormal tales from around the world. Hailing from Canada, Andrea and Tae are a terribly cheesy comedic duo that covers some of life’s biggest mysteries and peskiest ghosts.
