The Historic Menger Hotel
by R. L. Luna and family
Menger Hotel - Look near my daughters hand. We retook that picture. Same camera and lighting conditions. We could not recrate that
About a month ago I came across one of those ghost documentaries on the History Channel or A&E, I’m not sure which. They had a show on The Menger Hotel located in downtown San Antonio. It is literally across the street from the historic Alamo. The Alamo. Can you imagine the amount of deaths that took place on those grounds. Living in Dallas, Texas it wasn’t my first visit to San Antonio. But we were going to be in town anyway. So I decided to get a room there. It was beautiful in an antique sort of way. They had rooms behind Plexiglas and plaques outside rooms where famous people had stayed. It definitely has a rich history.
Long story short. My family heard piano music in the room it was really faint. I believe it was coming from the vents. I assumed maybe from the lobby. We took a quick trip down there which was probably about 4 or 5 hundred feet away. Nowhere did we find the source of the music. We did find an old piano though. As a joke I told my daughter to reach out as if there was someone in the bench before the piano, and I took a picture. It was actually in the daytime still. When midnight came that night, we ventured into the hotel hallways and took maybe 150 more pictures.
I don’t know what we captured on the images but I will say this. The camera is well over a year old. We have used it in all kinds of lighting conditions and never have I seen anything like what we caught in these pictures. These are not altered in anyway. I my not be a total believer in ghosts but I will say this.
“There is something out there that is way weirder than everyday experiences. I think people are so caught up in getting to the next meeting or tough city traffic. They don‘t realize they are side by side with other dimensions. All you have to do is reach out.”
I welcome comments.
