Ayers-Allen House - Real Metuchen Haunted Place
Some also believe the property was a stop on the Underground Railroad in the 1800’s. The home has two trap doors and a hidden room in the house.
Many believe the property is haunted. Some say the ghost of a Continental Army soldier exists here. Several ghosts have been seen on the premises, including a mother searching for her son who was killed by British soldiers, American Revolutionary soldiers, and even Hessian mercenaries. Some have even seen two Native American spirits who were unjustly hanged from a tree in the house’s yard.
Since 1985 the house has been listed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and National Register of Historic Places. It’s also been dubbed one of the most haunted places in Central Jersey by CenteralJersey.com.

This is a friend of the owner. I know it is not a parking lot because my friend has been living here for the last 21 years. The parking lot is from next-door. Also, Jonathan, Catherine, Matilda, & Lousie has NEVER been living in the Ayers-Allen House.\Posted 4/23/20

Yes, we do haunt this house, but we are very cooperative with the current living residents. They neer feel alone here, because we are here for them. We don't do too many bad things, and when we do, we can easily blame it on the children who live here. You are welcome to trick-or-treat on Halloween, but unless you know our living humans, we won't let you in. All the best, Jonathan, Catherine, Matilda, & LouisePosted 8/12/18

16 Durham ace wawa ant the only haunted house there was a three
I grow up in Metuchen New Jersey. I know that my house at 52 Durham before it burn down was haunted I lived there. In my sister's bedroom I saw a ghost of small soldier. There was also a house next door to the Ayers Allen house that is now a parking lot. Many times in the winter after a fresh s ow on the ground would be foot steps that the owners didn't going to the house next door. I never knew what happen there in the old house. Very spooky place. In my own house at 52 Durham Avenue you would hear foot steps on the attic stairs at night and no one was in the attic.Posted 8/10/18
