Are there many haunted places in New Jersey?

The Garden State is a ghost hunting paradise, with haunted hollows and spooky spots everywhere you turn! In Ashbury Park, you'll find the former home of writer Stephen Crane. This historic property has been featured on Ghost Hunters. Legend has it that Scotch can't be kept here - the contents of every bottle mysteriously vanish... even while remaining sealed. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is currently undergoing restoration efforts. Then there's the Trenton Psychiatric Hospital up in Trenton, New Jersey, a place that even the most thick-skinned folks won't venture near. Though many old asylums in New Jersey have been demolished, Trenton Psych still stands, and parts of the building are in use to this day. The institution has a dark past filled with tales of torture and terror. The hospital's director, Dr. Henry Cotton, believed that removing organs could cure mental illness. He would often perform treatments with anesthesia. Dozens of patients (or more) died while under his care. Read about more haunted places in New Jersey in this article... if you dare...

What's a creepy ghost story about New Jersey?

If you visit Angel of the Sea, an historic inn in Cape May, you may meet one of the state's more infamous ghosts. Rumor has it that a woman in the 1960s, known only as Miss Brown, forgot her room key and attempted to climb her way in. She fell to her death and never left. There have since been reports of vibrating beds, swaying furniture, and mysterious lights at this New Jersey hotel. Another hotel in Cape May, Hotel Macomber, also has spirits all its own. It is said that there are multiple spirits haunting this centrally located boutique hotel in Cape May. Sightings of a shabbily dressed waitress in the dining and kitchen areas have been reported along with claims of moving silverware. Room 10 is said to be the summer home of a spirit from the 1940s who often loudly drags her trunk about. We don't know about you, but we would steer far, far away from these places!
