The groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical; phantoms of the Faust Hotel, New Braunfels, which include a black cat; the suicidal jumper who is said to still haunt his room at the Omni Austin Hotel; paranormal phenomena at the Tarpon Inn, Port Aransas, including a bathroom that sometimes has a pink glow; the spooky goings on at the St Anthony Hotel, San Antonio, including phantom second-honeymooners who don't know when to stop; the spectral cowboys who, in the hours before dawn, walk in the courtyard of the Y.O. Ranch Hotel, Kerrville; and creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Texas.
The ghost of a murdered call girl in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio; the winged, humanoid monsters of Littlefield who allegedly lived in the basement of two elderly spinsters; the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base; the lady in white who carries a cat in the Marriott Plaza Hotel in San Antonio; the Lake Worth monster, a creature appearing as part man, part goat and part fish; the ghostly woman who walks the banks of the Rio Grande in Laredo, looking for the children that she pushed over a cliff into the river; and the strange phenomena at the Driskill Hotel, Austin, including the odd sensation experienced by guests who stare at the third floor picture of a child holding flowers, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Texas.
Ghosts in all of the rooms (including one that still sometimes leaves tips for the maid) at Miss Molly's Hotel bed and breakfast, once a bordello, in Fort Worth; the thirty-two benevolent ghosts of the historic Menger Hotel, close to the Alamo in San Antonio, including Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt (who recruited Rough Riders in the Menger Bar), the phantom of rancher Richard King in his former suite (the King Room), chambermaid Sallie White who still meticulously performs her duties in Victorian attire, a bespectacled lady in a blue dress who knits quietly in the lobby, a man in a buckskin jacket and unseen kitchen helpers; the ghostly civil war soldiers of Patterson Road, Houston; Pecos Bill with his coyote family, his rattlesnake Shake (that served as his lasso) and his true love the catfish-riding Slue-Foot Sue (Neil Armstrong may have been the first MAN to set FOOT on the moon but Sue banged her HEAD on it many years earlier, after being thrown by Bill's appropriately named horse, Widow-Maker); the spirits of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, such as the shade of Sarah Morgan (who was killed by a student) in the biology building, the ghost of a bearded and stetsoned professor in Holden Hall, the phantom of a student in the underground tunnels (still trying to sneak into the girls' dormitories) and "George", the harmless spectre of the old President's House; supernatural entities at Victoria's Black Swan Inn in San Antonio; and the three ghosts of the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Galveston, including one that leaves the scent of gardenias in a room, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.
