Feltville Historic District Haunted House "The children will play...."
The Feltville Historic District is located in the Watchung Reservation, Union County, New Jersey. It includes eight houses, a church, a carriage house and a general house. Only one family remains in this "deserted village of Feltville". In 1850, about 175 people lived in Feltville. It has been a widely held belief that three ghosts live in the house furthest down the path. The rumor originated in 1912, when three young sisters all went camping deep in the woods, yet did not return. Locals were only able to find their bonnets, and the fears of the people caused almost half of the residents to move away. Those that remained never let their children go deep in the woods again without supervision, and a town ordinance now prohibits camping beyond the scope of the houses without the appropriate permits. I took this photo because this is the home where the ghosts are said to haunt, and the inscription on the wood struck me in a very eerie way.
