Haunted Texas: Julia Ideson Building

The Haunting of the Julia Ideson Building

Houston, Texas

The Julia Ideson Building’s resident ghost, Jacob Frank Cramer, worked for many years as a night watchman. He would often play his violin in the evenings from the top floor of what is now the Tudor gallery before retiring to his on-site basement apartment. On a November morning in 1936, librarians found him dead. But Cramer has never really left the building, returning in spirit when the mood strikes him to play his melodies once more.
