EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Every Saturday evening in October, join us for the Third Annual East Brunswick Ghost Walk tour of the historic village of Old Bridge, located in East Brunswick.
This neighborhood was settled in the 1600s, but was first inhabited by the Lenape. Their trails became roads and their village became the site of the South River Bridge Tavern. In 1727, a local Indian Sachem shot and killed the owner of the tavern, marking the first, but not the last, murder to occur here.
This year features stories of the Crandall Family, who lost their son, Joseph, during World War I. Two tragic deaths occurred in the Crandall Home, and spirit activity includes moving objects and apparitions. Most of the pre-Civil War homes in the village report paranormal activity, including the site of the Rachel Wright murder of 1906. There is even an abandoned cemetery in the middle of the village.
The tour lasts about ninety minutes, rain or shine (bring umbrellas). They begin at 7:30 p.m. each Saturday evening and start on Kossman Street, near the corner of Main Street. For GPS directions, use 21 Kossman Street as the central point of the historic village. The cost is $8 per person, with a portion of the proceeds going to the East Brunswick Museum. The tour is appropriate for ages eight and above and are both wheelchair and stroller friendly. Flashlights and cameras are recommended. We are sponsored by the New Jersey Ghost Organization.
This year the proceeds in part will be given to the East Brunswick Museum.
