 Cherry Hill 

Headless Horseman – A man named Stephen Decker haunts the area around Cherry Hill Road. He had gone off to camp one night and was robbed and murdered by thieves, who cut off his head. The murderers tried to pretend to discover his corpse, but when they arrived, his body was missing. There are reports of a headless man on horseback to this day. Some witnesses have even claimed to see a body lying in the road. Cars and people pass right through the body when approached.

 Good Hope 

Ghormley Road – The dangerous “S” curve on this road is said to be the site of many vehicle accidents. Numerous people have lost their lives in the accidents and some of their spirits are said to haunt the area, making eerie noises on certain nights. Apparitions have been seen on the bridge near the curve.


Creamer Road Abandoned House – Orb-like objects have been photographed in the second floor window of this abandoned home.

 Washington Court House 

Department of Health & Human Services – This building once housed the armory of the National Guard. During World War I, a soldier was left behind at the armory while the rest of the men from his company went off to war. Being so upset that he wasn’t with the rest of his company, the man committed suicide. His ghost is said to knock boxes off of shelves and people have occasionally smelled pipe smoke when no one is smoking.

Washington Cemetery – This cemetery is haunted by a mysterious shadowy figure. It is said that the shadowy figure chases people out of the cemetery when visiting at night. The ghost may have even been captured in a photo! Click Alice’s name to be transported to an archive of her website with the photo. (Credits: Alice)
