The White House is considered to be one of the most haunted locations in the USA. Many of its previous tenants never left the building. The most famous ghost, seen by Winston Churchil, Eleanor Roosevelt and Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, is Abraham Lincoln. David Burns, former owner of the land on which the White House was built, is also said to wander around in cold nights.
