Overview

13 Ghostly Tales and Yarns of the Navesink River: Where History and Folklore Collide by Patricia Martz Heyer

13 Ghostly Tales and Yarns of the Navesink River reveals this very confrontation. Although we call them tales, each story is based on actual events from our local history. Through the years these historical accounts became meshed with oral legends and paranormal accounts shared by locals. If you dig deep into the local archives you can find the seeds of each and every tale.

With such a rich and colorful history the region's folklore bears such unexpected encounters as a phantom ship and sea serpents. There are specters of lost soldiers and glimpses of a cruel slave owner's ultimate punishment. There is a war fought only on our river, a house that floats across a river, and a valley where settlers feared to travel. There is even an elegant Victorian party that goes terribly awry and a report of a local ghost with a police record.

The collision of history and folklore creates savory reading. So sit back and relax and enjoy some of the many ghostly tales and yarns of the Navesink River.
