    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; 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 ghostly civil war soldiers of Patterson Road, Houston; the lady in white who carries a cat in the Marriott Plaza Hotel in San Antonio; the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base; the spectral cowboys who, in the hours before dawn, walk in the courtyard of the Y.O. Ranch Hotel, Kerrville; and the spooky goings on at the St Anthony Hotel, San Antonio, including phantom second-honeymooners who don't know when to stop, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Texas.

    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); the groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical; the three ghosts of the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Galveston, including one that leaves the scent of gardenias in a room; the winged, humanoid monsters of Littlefield who allegedly lived in the basement of two elderly spinsters; paranormal phenomena at the Tarpon Inn, Port Aransas, including a bathroom that sometimes has a pink glow; 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; and 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, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.

    Appearances of the spiny goat-sucker, the chupacabra; the ghostly nun and the doppelgangers of staff who roam La Posada Hotel, on the site of a former convent, in Laredo; supernatural entities at Victoria's Black Swan Inn in San Antonio; the ghost of a murdered call girl in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio; the suicidal jumper who is said to still haunt his room at the Omni Austin Hotel; 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; the phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo; and creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene, are yet more strange folktales of Texas.
