October 2016 marks the Second Annual East Brunswick Ghost Walk, located in the historic Old Bridge village section of town. This neighborhood was settled in the 1600s, but was first inhabited by the Lenape.

Their trails became roads and their village became the site of the South River Bridge Tavern.

In 1727, a local Indian Sachem shot and killed the owner of the tavern, marking the first, but not the last, murder to occur here.

Sites and stories of local hauntings are featured.
