Bush sisters recount supernatural encounters at the White House 

The daughters of former President George W. Bush have revealed their past supernatural encounters while staying in the White House.

"There are ghosts in the White House, and had you said that to us [before], we would have said 'No way,' because we are not necessarily believers," Jenna Bush Hager said at a recent SiriusXM event.

She recounted that one night during her father's term, she heard the phone ring and in her words, "I kind of woke up, turned it off, and I was falling back asleep and I heard opera, and a woman's opera voice coming from the fireplace. I got chills."

The twins then said they heard jazz music coming out of the same fireplace two nights later, with Jenna's twin sister Barbara recalling, in part, "The hair on the back of our neck was standing up ... We convinced ourselves that the cat must have jumped right on top of the piano."

They aren't the first ones who have shared stories of unexplained occurrences in the White House which a recent Washington Post piece dubbed "the nation's most famous haunted house."

Former President Harry S. Truman had mentioned sounds of footsteps when no one was there in a letter to his wife.

"The damned place is haunted sure as shootin'," he wrote.

And Abraham Lincoln was also said to have seen an apparition of his deceased 11-year-old son Willie before being spotted around the White House after his own death in 1865.

According to the White House Historical Association, guests and staffers have also reported seeing or hearing signs of former Presidents Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, John Tyler and William Henry Harrison in addition to first ladies Dolley Madison and Abigail Adams.
