Cape May Haunted Houses

This weekend we went to visit friends in Cape May, known for being one of the most haunted towns in the country. We stayed at a home built in 1690 by John Hand, a whaler who lived in the house with his beautiful wife, Mercy. According to the owners, her presence is still very real, along with her ghostly body. 
Stories of lights mysteriously going on and off, and strange, unexplained noises have made the owners, and their guests believe this home is a magnet for paranormal activity, In fact, medium and author John McManus was called to the beautiful farmhouse by this lively apparition during a seance across the street. 

Multiple stories were enough to have me convinced!

Even during the day, haunted houses can be found on just about every corner. During a bike ride, I passed the Cherry House, a private residence that gives the occasional haunted tour for those who are interested. 

This is a photo of the Physick House, apparently the most haunted home in all of Cape May. There was something downright eerie about the place, maybe it was the shadows lurking in the windows that seriously made me think twice about doing their late-night haunted tour. Even Delaney's, the quaint Irish pub where we had lunch, has been documented as a haunted dwelling. If anyone gets over to Cape May this season, I highly recommend the haunted trolley tour, especially with a group and you can decide for yourself!
