The Crying Little Girl of Matz Street (Harlingen, TX)

Natives of Harlingen, Texas can tell you all about the little apparition who haunts Matz Street.  Locals claim that the girl wanders up and down the street, sobbing into her hands.  When approached, she is unresponsive, but will sometimes peer up at her would-be good Samaritans, before mysteriously vanishing before their eyes!

Read what these people had to say about it.

“I heard this little girl in 2008 when my friend came over one night.  We had my window open and heard a little girl screaming.  I didn’t see her, but it freaked me and my friend out terribly. I have lived on Matz for 18 years.” –anonymous

“My niece lived in an apartment right on the curve on Matz Street  and had to move out after only month.  It was only one month because one day her husband saw a little girl standing behind him while changing the TV channels.  When he jumped up to look behind him, there was no one there.  My niece, a few days later saw her little shape behind a floor length curtain after hearing her laugh as she washed dishes, my niece ran out of the apartment and ran to my house for help.” –anonymous

  1. True I heard her when I picked up my brother in law on Blake I turn on matz and heard her even lowered down the radio

    1. I lived on Blake I was walking down the canal and when I hit matz street I saw a white shadow looking thing then I heard her sound, then I smoked my blunt I had with me. True story

  2. My huband and i live on matz ave. One morning around 5am we went out back to smoke a cigarette and heatd a child crying. We automatically thought one of the kids woke up but when my hb checked the kids wrte all sound asleep….keep in mind i staued outside while he ckecked and the crying never stopped. Soon after he came back out and told me kids were asleep but the crying continued….sounded as if it was comming from the alley to tell u the truth. He heard it as well so i convinced myself it wad a cat and rushed inside. It was no cat though….cats dont cry like that j/s

      1. Apparently after reading the story it seems it haunts West Matz Ave. West Matz Ave is where the older subdivions are located, probably 50s/60s/70s. East of 1st is consudeee E. Matz. And, E Matz between 1st and 7th st is where all new ritzy houses are located. And, after 7th st still E. Matz is also considered somewhat new subdivisions till it ends on 13st.
        Someone saw her close to Blake and Matz Ave which is West Matz, west of 1st. Another one mentions apartments. Only section of Matz with apartments is West Matz where Dennis St and New Combes HWY meet. Hope this helps🙈

  3. Local history doesn t back up the story, though, and the camp in the legend probably refers to the nearby defunct girl scout camp, Camp Lula Sams, which is currently the focus of a conservation effort.

  5. First incident***I lived at the green house on the corner of Matz, my room had a long opening cause at one point it was the dinning room. Well one morning I woke up to a shadow of a little girl on the ceiling in my bedroom walking back and forth of the opening I had. She was walking with her head kinda tilted down and had long hair. I swear it went on for more then 5minutes. She didn’t want to go away and I wasn’t trying to get out of bed to call my sister . I forced myself to sleep and when I woke up again she was gone.

    2nd incident** my sister woke up one morning and followed me to the restroom or at least so she thought. I see her coming out of my mom’s room cause that’s the restroom I usually go to, anyway I was coming out of my room and she had a puzzled look on her face. I asked her what’s wrong and she was like “how did you get there, I just saw you go to the restroom and when I followed you you weren’t there”. I told her “what are you talking about you just was me walk out of my room”. 😱😱😱
