Along with the White House, the Octagon House is considered among the most haunted houses in Washington, D.C.

Most people nominate the White House as D.C.'s most haunted building, but a close second contender is the Octagon House. Rebecca Sheir took a daytime tour of the Octagon for last year's "Haunted D.C." edition of Metro Connection. But she turned down an invitation to spend the night and prove/disprove the alleged haunting. One year later, she grabs her sleeping bag, microphone and trusty producer, and returns to the Octagon House for one unforgettable slumber party.

To hear the spook-tacular sounds of our original Octagon House visit, check out this story from last year's "Haunted D.C." Metro Connection!
