The Moonlight Towers In Austin Have A Dark And Evil History That Will Never Be Forgotten

Anyone who’s watched Dazed and Confused knows about Austin’s moonlight towers. The movie’s iconic scene at the moon tower had everyone at the theater wishing they were at that party. While this exciting image would make you think these towers are full of excitement and fun, rumor has it that these structures have a dark past. According to some, the moonlight towers were put in place as a response to Texas’ most deadly serial killer, The Servant Girl Annihilator. Whether or not these two stories have a correlation, one thing remains certain: 19th century Austin had a dark and evil killer that will never be forgotten.
