The W.E. Scott Theatre was built in 1966 with funds left by William Edrington Scott, who died of lung cancer, to benefit Fort Worth’s culture. W.E. Scott himself is believed to be one of the ghosts who haunt the theater. He has been known to straighten his portraits when they were hanging crookedly due to street vibrations. Another theater ghost is Kenneth Walker Yandle, who was an actor working here as a stage hand from 1967 to 1970. Kenny hanged himself in the prop room in the dungeon on January 7, 1970, depressed because of a breakup with his former girlfriend. He appears in a brown suit, walking across the stage, and folks have heard the sound of his laughter under the stage.
