The picturesque waters of the Mullica and the Delaware River belie the dark past of Burlington County. Legends of ghosts and spirits are all that remain of this troubled history. A blue ghost sings in the piano room of the Barclay Haines Homestead on the banks of the beautiful Rancocas. The Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences in Mount Holly houses some most unnatural "artifacts." Riverside's eerie Keystone Watch Case Tower, just thirteen miles north of Philadelphia, stands as a reminder to the lives lost in the harsh course of industrialization in the area. Join local legends expert Jan Lynn Bastien as she explores the haunted history of Roebling, Pemberton, Eastampton and other Burlington County communities.

Jan Lynn Bastien is a freelance writer in Mount Holly, New Jersey, the haunted seat of a very haunted county. Upon discovering the lingering spirits in her hometown, Jan organized popular Mount Holly ghost tours, which led to her first book, "The Ghosts of Mount Holly, A History of Haunted Happenings." She feels that the ghosts do a good job of telling people about this unique and history-rich area, but the real reason they hang around is because it is such a great place to be, they just hate to leave!
