    The ghostly civil war soldiers of Patterson Road, Houston; 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 phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo; the spooky goings on at the St Anthony Hotel, San Antonio, including phantom second-honeymooners who don't know when to stop; creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base; the Confederate soldier and the phantom boy nicknamed "Jimmy" who still roam Tremont House hotel in Galveston; the ghostly nun and the doppelgangers of staff who roam La Posada Hotel, on the site of a former convent, in Laredo; and the three ghosts of the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Galveston, including one that leaves the scent of gardenias in a room, are yet more strange folktales of Texas.
