Owners of historic mansion file Chapter 13 bankruptcy

The Morey Mansion is a historic Victorian mansion which was built in 1890. Many readers in Texas and elsewhere may remember the property as being part of the 1952 film titled 'Talk About a Stranger.' It was also in a 2009 episode of 'The Outsiders' which helped to fuel existing myths of supernatural activity within the historic residence.
