Meet 7 Ghosts From New Jersey And Discover Their Bone-Chilling Stories

New Jersey has a lot of history. For hundreds of years, the area was inhabited by Native Americans from the Lenni-Lenapi and Powhatan tribes. European colonization began in 1609, and New Jersey became a state in 1787. Many Revolutionary War battles were fought here, and the state has seen its share of disasters. It should come as no surprise that we have a handful of ghost stories to share.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
