Is This the Most Haunted House in Monmouth County, New Jersey?
As we approach Halloween 👻 it is definitely time to share some good spooky tales. This particular haunted house is known as the Burrowe’s Mansion and after I shared my adventure at the Elem Physick Mansion in Cape May, I thought let’s go to Monmouth County for this story.
This article is about a Jersey Shore home that has a spooky past. It’s the Burrowe’s Mansion in Matawan, Monmouth County. What caught my eye about this home was seeing a show on the travel channel aka ghost tv lol it was featured on an episode of Ghost Nation on Travelchannel. If you remember Steve Gonsalves from the show, was on the air with me and we talked ghost hunting and links to New Jersey.
Let’s take a look at some of the history of this Monmouth County landmark. The Burrowe’s Mansion was built 1723 making it almost 300 years old. Major John Burrowe’s decided to buy the property in 1769. In 1776 British troops attacked the Burrowe’s Mansion looking for the Major, however he was not there. According to legend, his wife Margaret held the British at bay for while until they stormed into the home. Mrs Burrowe’s was struck by a soldiers sword, which the wound eventually led to her death.
Legend says that Mrs Burrowe’s spirit haunts the home and many have said they have seen and heard things in the home. I had a chance to drive up and get photos from the outside, currently I believe there are no tours being given inside.
Quite a sight seeing this 300 year old mansion in person and wondering if I’d see Mrs Burrowe’s in a window, guarding her home from the British.
Check out the photo gallery and maybe this Halloween season take a drive by the Burrowe’s Mansion and see if you see anyone in the window? 👻
