Our culture’s most primitive form of entertainment has always been storytelling. Ghost stories and folklore have survived the ages and still find an audience in today’s society.


The Weird N.J. magazine started in 1992 and is still around today, constantly updated with stories of haunted or unexplained happenings. With enough stories to fill a magazine and furnish a flourishing company, New Jersey has more than just the New Jersey Devil.


New Jersey the ancient village of Uxbridge in Cherry Hill, the haunted police barracks in Bloomfield, or the Butterfly Shack hauntings in the Pine Barrens. And that’s just a few of the examples.


Go down the rabbit hole, reading scary stories of abandoned hospitals, ghost stories of every variation and pet cemetery accounts. Every state book or story on the site is within reach of the reader.


The popularity of these stories spread, creating Weird Locations a website that details unusual and creepy state-to-state folklore across the country.


With a peaked curiosity, there are plenty of creepy locations within driving distance that are worth visiting or, at the very least, reading about.
