It was during the Wilson administration when Dolley's ghost was most active. First Lady Edith Wilson wanted to have the garden removed. The workers hired to perform the task of removing the garden were never able to do their job. Dolley Madison's spirit simply wouldn't let them. The workers were distracted constantly by her angry ghost and finally fled. First Lady Edith Wilson gave up and left the garden alone.
Sometimes people can smell wet clothes and laundry soap in the East Room. She has also been seen walking to the East Room with her basket of laundry
Lincoln has been known to pace the grounds of the White House when the nation is in danger. His ghost was most active during the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt. First Lady Eleanor often used the Lincoln Bedroom as her study. Late at night she would sense his presence. Prime Minister Winston Churchill saw Lincoln when he stayed at the White House. One night he emerged from his bath and found Linclon sitting by the fireplace. A young clerk from President Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration claims to have seen President Lincoln sitting on his bed, putting his boots on.
President Calvin Coolige's wife, First Lady Grace, saw Lincoln's spirit standing by the window in the Oval Office, looking out with his hands clasped behind his back. Daughter of President Ronald Reagan, Maureen, claimed to have seen Lincoln's ghost several times. Tobias Johnson has been a butler since the days of the Kennedy administration has been reported saying that Lincoln's ghost is a polite and harmless one who will get your attention by tapping you lightly on your shoulder
Although many Lincoln scholars say otherwise, it is more than possible that Abraham Lincoln didn’t just believe in the supernatural, but that he actually participated in it. Many have scoffed and said that Lincoln had no time for ghosts and spirits, but there are others who say that he actually attended séances that were held in the White House. Whether he accepted the movement or not, it is a fact that many Spiritualists were often guests there. Several of them were even said to have given him warnings about the dark shadows that hung over his life.
Perhaps the most creepiest ghost of all is that of a phantom cat which has been seen in the basement of the White House. From far away, the cat looks like a harmless kitten but as you get closer, the kitten gets bigger and looks more menacing. The cat makes its appearance before something devastating is about to happen to the nation. The cat has been seen before President Kennedy was assassinated and before the Stock Market crash of 1929.

The most interesting account, in my opinion, of White House hauntings is the "Demon Cat" that is said to reside in the basement.

It happened on the first months of this administration and the MSM has erased all mention of it...it's true enough... You may find a reference to it in some alternate media...The Blaze or some such

ThIs high concentration of ghost activity is probably due in part to the upside down pentagram one can see when looking at the aerial street view of The White House itself.
That might explain why these spirits are trapped and continue to linger.
