    The ghostly nun and the doppelgangers of staff who roam La Posada Hotel, on the site of a former convent, in Laredo; creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; the unexplained phenomena and spectres of the Hotel Lawrence, Dallas, including the ghost of a gambler; 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 ghost of a murdered call girl in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio; the three ghosts of the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Galveston, including one that leaves the scent of gardenias in a room; and the Confederate soldier and the phantom boy nicknamed "Jimmy" who still roam Tremont House hotel in Galveston, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Texas.

    Appearances of the spiny goat-sucker, the chupacabra; the black eyed boy, presumably a BEK, who terrified a large airman on a military base; the phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo; phantoms of the Faust Hotel, New Braunfels, which include a black cat; the spooky goings on at the St Anthony Hotel, San Antonio, including phantom second-honeymooners who don't know when to stop; 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; and 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, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.

    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; 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 spectral cowboys who, in the hours before dawn, walk in the courtyard of the Y.O. Ranch Hotel, Kerrville; the groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical; the sounds of happy children heard in the Hamilton Hotel, Laredo, even when no children are near; 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 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, are yet more strange folktales of Texas.
