White House at Night

While this isn't technically a ghost tour, it is the perfect accompaniment to the darker side of history.

A scandalous side of White House? Who would've thought it? Join Free Tours by Foot for a walk through the neighborhood around the White House at night to talk about presidential affairs, nearby duels, murders, and scandalous first ladies.

Our historian guides take you through this small park, known as Tragedy Square, for the true stories of some of the city’s darkest secrets and most haunted houses, including the White House.


We consider this tour for adults only. We'll let you decide what adult means but be forewarned we will go into gory details and not gloss over topics of what happened around the White House at night. If you think your teen can handle it, they are more than welcome but you've been given a heads up.
