List of Haunted Places in New Jersey 2

Absecon – Pitney House – Late at night, as the only visitors when staying in a private cottage of this B&B, a soft song could be heard playing on a fife (a flute like instrument).  No one else was on this property that night, not even the owner or caretaker.

Atco – Multiplex – Strange noise can be heard in theater 12 as if someone is moving their hands across the wall and voice can be heard.

Allamuchy – Shades of Death – is the actual name of a road located in, New Jersey. It is said that if you drive down there late at night, and you enter into a patch of fog on the road, it will follow you and you will find footprints on your car…human footprints.

Allamuchy – Ghost Lake –
 Ghost Lake is located on Shades of Death Road in Allamuchy Township the local legends vary – but the prevailing theme is that there was an Indian Graveyard there and settlers built a man made lake over the graveyard. At night the Indians haunt the area – even we (locals) stay away. Plus there are MANY bear families there so be careful.

Alpine – Devil’s Tower – It is said to be, that a long time ago, during the 1900′s though, a man was building a “tower” tall enough so that his wife could see the New York Skyline. While it was being built, the wife went up to the top floor, as she came down, she saw her husband with another woman! She ran back up to the top, and jumped out. There is a myth, if you circle the tower, 8 times or something, something is supposed to happen. Nobody has been able to complete it.

Ancora – Veterans haven – Veterans haven is right next to bayside prison ward and Ancora mental institution. It was once a town the psychiatric hospital made for patients to all live together, many of the patients murdered each other, and the most of them are old veterans from the war. Eventually, so many killings took place they just shut the whole town down. It has a lot of paranormal activity and the streetlights are still left on through out the little deserted ghost town.

Atlantic City – Taj Mahal – it is said that man jumped from the tenth floor of the garage and haunts that area every night around midnight

Bay Head – The Greenville Hotel/Restaurant –
 Over the years many employees have experienced many things from ghosts physically appearing (looking very much like a live person) and walking down the hall and disappearing, to the sounds of children playing in the lobby late at night. One employee even reported falling asleep on the couch in the lobby and awaking to the sounds of kids playing in front of them. He saw glimpses of them as well. There are sounds of moving furniture in unoccupied rooms, sounds of people walking down the hall but “no one is there”, the sense that someone is standing behind you, but “no one is there”. Guests report hearing children run down the halls laughing in the middle of the night, but there are never any live children doing that. In fact it is rare that children stay there.

Bayonne – Bayonne High School – The now auditorium of the high school used to be the Jr high section. It’s been said that a boy around 14 hung himself from the stairwell, also it’s been said he was pushed and broke his neck but anyway. If you go there just before school season begins you will see a boy opening the doors to the auditorium with school books in his hands. Also on many nights that the high school has put on plays there is a boy in the back of the room just watching.

Bayonne – Elco Naval Base – This was a World War Two Factory active to make P.T. Boats after the war a lot of people lost the jobs. During the war a boat fell off a conveyer belt and crushed 2 men. And now the little girl is seen some times looking for her father and her father is still yell for her. Over and over. Never to be seen again but forever heard!

Bayonne – Robbins Reef Yacht Club – The gentleman who haunts this location was said to have hung himself in an unstairs bedroom. If you enter the room in the dark, a cold icy feeling passes over your skin. In addition, bottles have been seen “jumping” off the ledges in the back of the bar, not breaking, and if replaced on the ledge, will again leave the spot to land on the floor.

Bayville – Admiral Farragoes – There is said to be screams coming from the old building every night around 12:00 am.

Bernardsville – Long Rd. – Devil’s Tree – Turn onto Long Rd, (which is really short) then make a left at the end, you will come upon a highly wooded area and then it just opens up into a field. At the end of the field there is a huge hideous looking tree with a branch that extends perfectly parallel to the ground. It is said that the tree was used to hang slaves on and still has a chilling aura to it. You can see marks on the trunk from people attempting to chop it down, they say whoever tries, something bad happens to and sometimes a pickup truck will try to chase you out. In the Summer that tree is in full bloom and actually quite lovely. In the Winter or Fall however, it is creepy looking. The axe marks on the tree are from years of kids hearing the legend of the tree and what would happen if you tried to cut it down. Supposedly if you try to cut it down the devil in a black pick up truck will come and chase you away, once you drive down the road a bit the truck just vanishes. It’s an Urban Legend that gets featured in Weird NJ magazine all the time. Please get permission before you visit this property, otherwise you are trespassing and could get arrested.

It is said that a residing monk hanged himself on the third floor of this building. Security guards of the college have reported hearing footsteps thumping down the hall of the third floor. They often avoid interior patrol.

Boonton – Darress Theater – It was closed for many years and was finally bought and used for children’s theater (like Snow White, etc.) and they also show movies there at night, too. The people that are there late at night say they hear voices, footsteps and the chair seats move. There have also been reports of singing coming from the theater when everyone has gone home for the night.

It is part of the Green Cathedral. People get married and children are christened there.
