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.
