In an area of Southern NJ, there is a section known as the Pine Barrens. It is home to "The Jersey Devil" and is loaded with many forms of life that
are indiginous to only this area. The water in the many lakes and streams is what locals call "cedar water". Many accounts claim that the water in
these streams, rivers, and lakes is "blood red". It is more brown, the color of drying blood than bright red. It is not polluted water, in fact it
is considered very clean by most standards. Having spent MANY a day and night in the Pine Barrens, it doesn't take alot of imagination to feel as
though you are in a haunted place while there.
When I was in my late teens, my buddies and I came across a very old farm home that was falling apart. The roof for the most part had caved in, one
side of the entire home was missing, and so on. The lower rooms were fairly intact, with holes in the plaster walls, and litter from a past life
throughout the place. Very narrow stairways would take you to the 2nd, and 3rd floors, and a rock lines stairwell took you into the basement. I would
estimate that the house had been abandoned for 20 years, and it showed. Lots of dirt, and water stains everywhere. It was a great place to hang out,
ideally creepy. There were old bottles, and trinkets you would occassionaly find - nothing we found was ever worth anything, but fascinating to look
at and speculate what the owner was like. Like I said it was a delapidated, very cool hangout.
With one exception.
Attached to the back of the house - with no opening to the inside of the house, you had to go outside and enter from an exterior entrance, was a room
that you had to take 3 steps down to get into the entranceway, there was also a very large garage type door at the far end leading to what was once
the back yard. The first time we were there, we didn't even see this room, as we were busy exploring all of the rest of the house. The second time we
went, we went to this room, took the 3 steps down, and opened the door. It's important to note that there were no other doors in the house, they all
were missing. We opened the door, and much to our amazement, there was a clean floor with a drain in one corner. Hooks hung from the ceilings and
walls - we were inside what was the slaughterhouse.
There were 2 sinks along one of the walls. 2 tables were in the center of the room, not far from the sinks. I'm not claiming that this room was
sterile like a doctors office, but it was clean, and looked like it could've been used last week. The feeling of a prescence was unmistakable. The
rest of the house was absolutely trashed, yet this one room was ready to go......
We took a ton of pictures, hoping to catch some anomalies on film, but aside from a couple of "different" things we never really saw anything on
We all said we were going to spend Halloween night there, but we never had the cajones to actually do it. VERY VERY creepy.
