Menger Hotel

The Story Behind Menger Hotel

First opened in 1859 by German immigrant William Menger, The Menger Hotel quickly became a huge draw for the country's most notable figures. Babe Ruth, Mae West, and Presidents such as Eisenhower and Roosevelt made it a point to visit the hotel. 

But is it possible that the spirits of the Menger Hotel actually be any of those historical celebrities? Well, yes. Many believe Theodore Roosevelt one of the many ghosts to haunt the Texas hotel. And it's no surprise to anyone that the most likely room you'll find his phantom spirit is none other than the bar, enjoying a fine drink of course. 

There's also the story of Sallie White. A chambermaid during the early days of the hotel, she had an altercation with her husband that left her severely wounded. Unfortunately, she wouldn't survive those wounds as she died only days later. Now Sallie haunts the halls and rooms of the Menger Hotel. In fact, one woman took a picture in the halls and when she looked at the picture, could see a figure of a woman who was definitely not there. Many think this figure is of Sallie White, still working at the hotel in her afterlife.
