List of Haunted Places in New Jersey

Wall Township – Arthur Brisbane Child Treatment Center – Was a mental hospital for children. Lights flicker as you drive through and you can hear little kids screaming if you stop and shut your car off and leave the windows open.

Warren – Warren Graveyard – There is the Warren Graveyard at the intersection of Mountain Blvd. and Mt. Bethel Rd. It is supposed that you see Sir Isaac warren in the corner by the church with his to grandchildren who died with him in a car wreck nearby. They are usually only seen on Memorial weekend and Halloween!

Washington – Washington cemetery – This cemetery is kind of large and extends on both sides of a small street off RT. 57 in Washington. In the smaller side of the cemetery there are 3 large headstones (possible the largest in that section). It was a husband, a wife and child, and a family friend. They were all murdered together in the family’s house in the 1840′s. If you read the epitaph on the headstones it mentions something about the wrath of God coming down upon those who did the murders. (the words are very warn and hard to read). This event was known as the Changewater Murders. Apparently the wrong people were caught and hung for the crime and by the time authorities figured out who really committed the murders, they were long gone. Orbs have been seen and caught on film.

Watchung Reservation – Densely wooded reservation with abandoned houses and etc. There are many stories that have come out of here. Example, there have said to have been a murder by the big lake there. Occult practitioners are said to have, and still meet and perform rituals.

Wayne – Clairview Movie Theater – voices heard in the projection room, apparitions of a grinning, pale man with big teeth standing in the open stall in the women’s restroom mirror, feeling someone kiss them, and lights turning off then on again.

Wayne – Dey Mansion – Strange lights can be seen and a strange shadow occupying the windows.

West Long Branch – Monmouth University – Library – The library which was once the summer cottage of Murry and Leonie Guggenheim is haunted by the ghost of a lady in white who walks down the staircase overnight at midnight. No one is allowed there past 11:30, they close it down (conveniently) before 12. Upstairs and all inside the house you have the feeling that you truly don’t belong and someone wants you to leave.

West Milford – Clinton Rd. – There is said to be the spirit of a little boy which haunts a small stream. If you toss a coin in at midnight he will throw it back. There is the story of the haunted coach that runs the road. There is also a “Hell-Hound” that chases you down if you enter the woods on the side of the road and see it. It is said to travel as fast as your car can go. (Note: Clinton Road is a hot bed for ghosts and other mysterious happenings.).

West Milford – Passaic County – Clinton Rd. – This road is a scary road. It has KKK sightings, Nazi meetings, Haunted dogs, and an old lady who walks on the same side as you re driving, and a creepy castle; A little boy was walking on this road one night and a car sped fast around a sharp turn and hit him and the boy fell over a little bridge and died. They say if you throw over a penny at exactly midnight, he throws it backs to you. Creepy huh? You can read more on weirdnj.com

Westville – river drive – Along River Drive there have been sightings of a ghost of a young woman in a night gown. She has been seen floating at about the second story level along River Drive. There is mention of a second spirt. this spirit sometimes looks like a fish or mermaid of some sort .Tributes to her are found on one of the bridges crossing the Big Timber Creek. Timber Creek runs next to River Drive, and the sightings have increased lately as there is a lot of digging taking place right now. It was an area of an amusement park a long time ago. Maybe the spirit is upset with the area being disturbed.

Woodstown – Seven Stars Tavern – a ghost with a noose around his neck and other noisy ghosts haunt this place.

Wycoff – Route 208 North, Russell Ave. – Wyckoff Exit – The legend is, there was a girl who was killed by a hit and run, and her father roams the streets (only on Russell Ave) every night from 12:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. looking for her killer. He is also blind. You can ride around all you want before 12:00am and you will not see him, but he seems to appear right at 12:00am. He will stop and stare at every car that drives by, so you will hardly ever see him walking, but yet you drive 1 block and turn around and he has already walked 5 blocks down.
