TAPS heads to New Jersey to investigate the oldest Governors mansion in the 13 original U.S. Colonies. The Proprietary House occupies an important place in American history as the residence of the last appointed Royal Governor of New Jersey, William Franklin the son of Founding Father Benjamin Franklin. During the period leading up to the Revolutionary War, Ben Franklin often visited the house, unsuccessfully attempting to convince his son to join the colonists cause. Over the past 200 years, the house has undergone extensive additions and numerous restorations and through it all has maintained its reputation as a bona fide haunted hotspot! From there, its off to central New Jersey, where 19th century spirits inhabit an historic mill and quarry. Built in the 1800s, this 10-acre site houses a water-powered mill, a schoolhouse and various other buildings. Today, the grounds and structures serve as a time capsule of what rural life used to be - but visitors and employees alike believe there are long-dead villagers still working and living on the property.
