2. Benjamin Franklin-Founding Father

Ben Franklin is one of the most significant figures in American history. As a writer, inventor, and founding father, Franklin’s legacy is almost anywhere you look. He wore many different hats during his lifetime and as such his spirit has been seen in various locations. Philadelphia, the city most closely associated with Franklin, is the most likely place you might see his ghost. People have seen him strolling the streets from time to time, and one woman claimed he had knocked her over while she was in the American Philosophical Society Library. Old Ben also appears to have a sense of humor as he is said to possess the statue of himself that is outside the American Philosophical Society and go dancing in the streets.

1. Anne Boleyn-The Discarded Queen

Beheaded in 1536 by her angry husband, Henry VIII, Queen Anne Boleyn clearly met a violent end. Scholars say that she may have actually been innocent of the charges Henry brought against her. If this is the case, it would make sense that her soul could not rest peacefully. As such, she has been seen in various places across England. She wanders past the Queen’s House near where she was executed and has appeared to be leading a procession of nobles across the Tower of London. She also appears at her childhood home of Hever Castle around Christmas time and visits Rochford Castle where she and Henry first met. Some who have seen her claim that she also likes to ride around in a carriage, holding her severed head in her lap, just like her niece, the Lady Jane Grey.
