There are old dilapidated mansions and buildings in some of our neighborhoods that are boarded up and give us an eerie feeling as we pass them. Some of these old estates have their own unique story telling us why they are no longer inhabitable. There are people who believe these homes are haunted while others are skeptical. In Newark, New Jersey, in the Forest Hill section of the city, there is an abandoned estate. Long ago, it was a beautiful residence, but now it is boarded up and neglected. No one knows what happened in this mansion with the no trespassing sign. Many Newarkers are curious and often look at this estate. Could this abandoned home be haunted?
