Burlington County Prison - Mount Holly NJ Real Haunt
Now a museum, the Burlington Prison was active for over 150 years before it closed in 1965. In the early 19th century it was state law for those convicted of capital crimes to be executed in the county where the crime occurred. As a result many people were hanged in this prison; there were also a few prison guards who died violently during attempted prison escapes. The spirits are said to still roam the building. The most common siting is that of a tall male specter in uniform walking about the basement. The third floor is also said to be the source of paranormal happenings, and electronic equipment will sometimes malfunction for no reason on the grounds. Email Haunt
