Olde Columbus Inne - Real Haunt in Columbus NJ
- 24491 West Main Street
- Columbus, NJ
The Olde Columbus Inne no longer operates but the building still stands and it is believed to be one of the most haunted locations in all of New Jersey. Ghosts have been seen here, including that of a 19th-century orphan girl who used to work at the location. Unexplained noises have also been reported by the jail cell.
Olde Columbus Inne built in 1812 was a stage coach stop.
The Old Columbus Inne is in the process of renovations and will open within the next 2 years. It’s haunts are many. There’s Mickey who sat in his chair outside and at 5 pm would open the screen door and go to his seat at the bar. After his death the door would still open at 5 pm and the locals would say hey Mick. There’s also an Indian ghost per rumors from the towns old timers. The other ghosts are Kieth Webb seen outside around 3-4am. Doc whose wife stabbed him 12 times after he spent the rent money drinking, lived another couple years before alcohol got him. Mr.Miers the neighbor who lived next door would stand outside with his brimmed hat and suit coat. There also is Cousin Howard as that’s what all called him, who sat on the old traffic light standard all day under the roof of the Inne. I’m sure Herb whose intial H is on the chimney is sure to visit. Posted 2/26/20
