Haunted Prison

The Haunted Prison is a haunted attraction that is built within the massive courtyard of the Burlington County Prison Museum in Mount Holly, New Jersey. Yes, It is very scary! One of the scariest in the tri-state area.

Excerpt from The Burlington County Prison Museum Website:

The “dungeon” or maximum-security cell, was in the center of the top floor. That location was carefully chosen to prevent escape by digging, to minimize communication with criminals in the cell blocks, and to ensure constant surveillance by guards making rounds. This was the only cell without a fireplace. It is flanked by niches for guards or visitors and has one very high, very small window and an iron ring in the center of the floor to which the prisoner could be chained. As one might expect, tradition states that this cell is haunted. Supposedly, the ghost of Joel Clough, a murderer who spent his last night there, has paid tribute to his last earthly residence and to the vigilance of the prison guards in later years.

Joel Clough brutally stabbed his girlfriend to death. Sentenced to death, he escaped from the prison but was quickly recaptured. He spent his final days in the death row cell known as “the dungeon”. Clough was hanged in 1833. Shortly after his death, guards and inmates heard moaning and the sounds of rattling chains from the empty cell. They also claimed to see apparitions and items levitating in the cell.
