The Burlington County Prison Museum has a dark and daunting past that eerily calls out to the living to reveal its secrets. These spirits have lured in several eager paranormal investigators, reporters, and programs such as Ghost Hunters. But there is still much more to be discovered hidden within and beneath the brick and mortar.

Burlington County Prison saw more than a few public hanging since its founding in 1811 and has also been home to several notorious inmates including Albert De-Salvo, who was later known as “The Boston Strangler.”Perhaps his tormented spirit is why so many guests feel that they are being choked when investigating the dungeons. One of the most active and prominent spirits at Burlington County Prison is Joel Clough. The 29-year-old refused to take “no” for an answer when he proposed to his lover. Unfortunately for her, Clough’s revenge took place in the form of her brutal murder. Several guests and staff members have captured EVPs from an unknown man referring to himself only as Joel. During many séances and vigils in the basement, people have both witnessed and heard the slamming of cell doors, full blown apparitions and even disembodied voices coming from the top floor.

Will you be brave enough to venture off into the prison for a lone vigil?
