First on our list, even the center of U.S. Presidential power is haunted. Abraham Lincoln’s ghost is most frequently seen, including by Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Grace Coolidge. President Andrew Jackson’s ghost is said to haunt his old bedroom and First Lady Abigail Adams is occasionally seen carrying something through the White House’s hallways.


Queen Mary

Moored off Long Beach, California, the Queen Mary was modified from its role as a luxury cruise-liner to a hotel in 1967. If you’re curious, listen for the ghosts of children around the pool and watch out in the changing rooms – hands are said to touch you out of nowhere.


General Wayne Inn

Nowadays a Jewish center, the General Wayne Inn just outside of Philadelphia has had a rough history since its opening in 1704. Edgar Allen Poe wrote sections of his famous poem The Raven at the inn and even as recently as 1996 the property saw a murder and suicide due to owner disputes.


The Stanley Hotel

This Estes Park, Colorado, luxury hotel inspired Stephen King’s book The Shining. Staying a night at the Stanley Hotel might leave you restless – children are said to play all night outside room 418 (the most haunted room) and you may awaken to find your blankets off and neatly folded.


Roosevelt Hotel
