Disembodied voices, shadow figures, and phantom footsteps have given the White Hill Mansion a reputation as one of New Jersey’s most haunted houses. Its origins go all the way back to 1723, when Robert Field built the first phase of the house. His son would go on to expand the house, but in 1775, he drowned mysteriously, leaving his widowed wife to fend for the house’s safety from British soldiers during the Revolutionary War. Since that time, it’s been home to a senator, inventor, and many more before becoming an upscale German restaurant in the 1920’s. By the 90’s it was a deteriorating, abandoned structure in danger of demolition before preservationists successfully rescued it. Since then, they’ve continued to work on preserving the home and host events like open houses and ghost tours. Check out whitehillmansion.com to see their upcoming events!
