Attic windows of the haunted tavern.

Haunted Gabreil Daveis Tavern House

I only saw it from the outside in the daylight, but it is still a creepy place. The windows are old and have that wavy look to them which could explain why people see things in the windows. Even with that, I wouldn't want to be there at night.

There is what looks like a grave off to the left of the house for a William S. Schuck 1890-1976. Also down over the hill from here there are wooden benches in rows, and two off to the side at a 90 degree angle to the others. Not sure what it is for. It reminds me of an outdoor church at a Boy Scout summer camp, but there was no visible area for a pulpit. Weird. Like I said, just plain CREEPY!

Haunted tavern.

Gabreil Daveis Tavern - Stains and Spirits

One of New Jersey's oldest historical landmarks used to be a tavern during the Revolutionary war. The attic was used a hospital for wounded soldiers. The original furnishings are in the house and there are still blood stains in the attic. Sightings have been recorded of people walking in the upstairs and strangest sounds of people suffering. The tavern used to open on Sunday afternoons from April through December, excepting holidays and is a really cool place to visit. I used to be petrified of this place when I was young, I lived in the area and used to pass it all the time. It is off the beaten path and up until about fifteen years ago there was no road leading to it -- it was in the woods.
