The Ghost Stories of the White House

Did you know that America’s most famous home, White House, has a reputation for being among the most haunted in the country?

On numerous occasions, past residents and staff members at the White House have shared stories of hearing strange noises and sighting ghosts of historic figures.

According to History.com, Harry Truman, the 33rd US President once shared his experience about its spookiness with his wife in a letter, noting, “I sit here in this old house and work on foreign affairs, read reports, and work on speeches–all the while listening to the ghosts walk up and down the hallway and even right in here in the study“.

President Abraham Lincoln’s ghost has been known to be seen in the hallways or his former bedroom. During World War II, the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill allegedly saw Lincoln’s ghost by the fireplace while staying in the former president’s bedroom.

Another spooky story revolves around Abigail Adams, 2nd President John Adams’ wife. They moved to the White House when it was still under construction and had no heating system.

Abigail used to dry her clothes in the East room because it was the driest room in the house. Abigail’s ghost has reportedly been spotted walking out of the East room with her arms extended in front of her as if she were carrying loads of clean clothes.

The ghost of President Andrew Jackson is said to haunt the Rose Bedroom which used to be his room. The Washington Post notes that “one former White House seamstress claimed she felt him lean over her while hemming a in his old bedroom”.

Besides human ghost sightings, ABC News says that there have been reports of a black demon cat with glowing red eyes in the White House basement. The legend is that the cat generally shows up before a national disaster.
