    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 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; the ghost of a murdered call girl in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio; the Lake Worth monster, a creature appearing as part man, part goat and part fish; the suicidal jumper who is said to still haunt his room at the Omni Austin Hotel; and strange phenomena at the Emily Morgan Hotel, near the Alamo in San Antonio (the Alamo itself is said by some to be the site of paranormal phenomena), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Texas.

    The winged, humanoid monsters of Littlefield who allegedly lived in the basement of two elderly spinsters; creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; the spooky goings on at the St Anthony Hotel, San Antonio, including phantom second-honeymooners who don't know when to stop; the ghostly nun and the doppelgangers of staff who roam La Posada Hotel, on the site of a former convent, in Laredo; 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; phantoms of the Faust Hotel, New Braunfels, which include a black cat; and the phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Texas.

    The emerald-headed serpent, a great deity that inhabits a crystal cave in the Gulf of Mexico but which, according to Native Americans, may be seen from the coast, when it ventures to the surface with a great display of light; the Confederate soldier and the phantom boy nicknamed "Jimmy" who still roam Tremont House hotel in Galveston; the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base; 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 groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical; the alleged hauntings of the historic Excelsior House Hotel in Jefferson, including a light-fingered woman in black with a baby, a perfumed lady, a headless man and a boy who wakes people up to ask whether they want breakfast (it is even claimed that Steven Spielberg had a supernatural experience at the hotel, the guests of which have included Oscar Wilde and Ulysses S Grant; and the unexplained phenomena and spectres of the Hotel Lawrence, Dallas, including the ghost of a gambler, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.
