New Jersey is home to hundreds of haunted spots. We’ve got the creepiest old homes, cemeteries, roads, asylums and battlefields, but one of our spookiest attractions is a haunted prison. Many inmates were sentenced for life, but it seems some stayed longer than that. With all the horrors that happened here, it’s no surprise.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Spooked out? I AM! Are you brave enough to explore the prison for yourself? Even if you don’t believe in paranormal activity, I’d still recommend giving this spot a visit. It’s a unique piece of history and the employees are truly helpful and informative. Have you ever been to Burlington County Prison? Share your experiences in the comments.
