Washington, D.C.’s past is brimming with presidents, politicians and scandals, so it’s no surprise that there’s a presidential haunting around almost every corner!
According to The History Channel, some presidents may have never left the White House once they passed away. Andrew Jackson’s ghost has been reported by everyone from Harry Truman to Mary Todd Lincoln. The ghost of Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams, can sometimes be seen clad in a cap and lace shawl, headed toward the East Room as though carrying laundry.
Lincoln’s ghost is said to peer out of a window in the Oval Office.
Most famously and most frequently seen, Abraham Lincoln is said to be seen in the Oval Office and the upper level of the White House. He’s been seen or heard by famous figures such as First Lady Grace Coolidge, Lady Bird Johnson, Eleanor Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
Washington, D.C.’s hauntings aren’t just limited to the White House. Around every Halloween, DC Ghost Tours gives tours of two other haunted sites in the district: Lafayette Square and Capitol Hill.
