Guests aren’t the only ones staying at the Menger Hotel
There are ghost sightings aplenty over at the Menger. They occur so often that many of them have names. There’s Sallie White, a chambermaid in the 1870s who was shot by her husband because he thought she was being unfaithful. She’s been seen wearing a uniform and apron, holding fresh towels in her hands. There’s also Capt. Richard King, who founded the famous King Ranch. He died at the Menger and has been seen wearing a bolo tie and black hat in the King Suite. The elevator next to the suite regularly stops there even without being punched.
