- From Visit South Jersey, the Burlington County Prison, at the corner of High Street & Grant Street in Mount Holly has been investigated by Ghost Hunters and many other paranormal reason teams. From 1811 to 1965, the prison was home to male and female inmates, including convicted murderers who were held in their maximum security dungeon. There were many escape attempts – some ended disastrously – and at least two guards died at the nads of escaping prisoners. Historians believe that some successful escapees were never found. On the third floor, cell five is haunted by the ghost of Joel Clough, convicted of stabbing his girlfriend to death. After being hanged in 1833, guards and inmates have reported strange phenomena such as hearing sounds of moaning and rattling chains, seeing floating items and apparitions inside the empty cell. Even after the prison closed, Clough’s ghost tormented the workers who were restoring the prison. This historical landmark now operates as a year-round museum where visitors can tour the haunted prison Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays for a very low admission fee.

It was designated a hospital by George Washington during the Revolutionary War. The tavern has had many ghost sightings and stories over the years.

Witnesses have had numerous experiences with these burlesque ghosts from the early days such as weird photos with glowing orbs in them and hearing someone tap dancing through the halls. One stage manager even said that one of the ghosts tugged on the scarf she was wearing around her neck! The Ritz Theatre is still in operation with family friendly shows running, so the best way to get an up close and personal experience of this haunted site is to go see a performance there.
