Are These 12 New Jersey Haunted Houses Real?

Let’s uncover the spooky secrets behind 12 haunted houses in New Jersey.

New Jersey’s Haunted History
New Jersey’s haunted history extends well beyond historic mansions and old estates. NJ’s collection of ghost towns — many of which remain as ruins in state parks and forests — are magnets for ghost hunters and visitors looking for a thrill.

In particular, the remains of Ong’s Hat in the Pine Barrens are filled with intrigue. Some claim it’s a portal to another dimension, while others call it the birthplace of the Jersey Devil.

Others cite historic Allaire Village in Wall Township as a stomping ground for ghosts and specters from the mid-19th century. Visitors claim to have apparitions in the form of iron ore miners in the abandoned homes.
