History

Fieldsboro, NJ is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, White Hill Mansion. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys. 

The History

During the Revolutionary War, Mary Field was reported by her loyalist neighbors as a rebel supporter, when it was discovered that she had dinner with an American naval, Captain Tom Houston, and his officers. Soon after her home was invaded by the British in search of hidden soldiers.

In 1777, General Washington put in orders for Colonial Captain Thomas Read and Captain John Barry to dock the American ships at White Hill. Mrs. Field eventually ended up marrying Commodore Thomas Read in 1779 and he made White Hill Mansion his home until his death in 1788.

Upon her death, Mary passed down the property to her son, Robert III in 1797. Unfortunately, he lost the entire property due to mismanagement in 1804.

The Mansion changed hands many times, occupied by inventors, doctors, and even a State Senator. Rumrunners and even bordello entrepreneurs took hold of this incredible structure. In 1923, Heinrich and Katrina Glenk turned it into Glenk’s Mansion House Restaurant, a German cuisine eatery. The restaurant served New Jersey’s upper-class for the next 50 years, but that was not without strange experiences. 

In 1972 the Glenks sold the restaurant. The Stepan Company purchased the building with the intent of using it for corporate offices, but when the Borough of Fieldsboro learned that Stepan planned to demolish the house, the borough bought the property. The White Hill Mansion is now on the New Jersey State Register of Historic Sites. Today, the White Hill Mansion is now on the New Jersey State Register of Historic Sites.

The Hauntings

The paranormal activity at this site may be due to Revolutionary War energies. Or could it be the rum smugglers that spent much time here during the during prohibition days? Its history as a bordello and speakeasy unquestionably adds much flavor and energies to its haunts.

Workers, as well as patrons of the previous restaurant, have reported sightings of a featureless “shadow man” who tends to appear and then disappear into the darkness. Black shadows have also been captured lurking around the basement. Make sure to listen, for you will also hear ghostly conversations down in the cellar. Other reports include sounds of children playing in the nursery and sounds of footsteps at the stairs in the middle of the night.

Some say they have heard Mr. Glenk, the restauranteur, talking in the attic. Regardless, this haunted historic site will not disappoint.

This property was featured in the 2016-19's "World's Largest Ghost Hunt." http://www.nationalghosthuntingday.com/
