President Truman’s House is a Victorian 14-room home, now operating as a museum. Staff members have seen the ghost of President Truman himself inside the home, often in the living room or walking the sidewalks outside. The smell of his brandy also has been detected. President Truman passed away in 1972, and his wife Bess continued to live in the house until 1982.
