Seabrook-Wilson House, also known as the Spy House, is said to be the first house on the Jersey shoreline. It was constructed by Thomas Whitlock in the 1600s and is rumored to be haunted. It operated as a tavern during the Revolutionary war, and reports say that British troops would visit here and talk strategy, which the tavern owner would relay to the Colonial troops. Now, at least 5 ghosts are said to linger here. One is a lady in white, who walks room to room. Another is a bearded sea captain, and a third is a young boy who looks out the windows. Legend has it that long ago the notorious Captain Morgan hid treasure and performed torture in the basement; his apparition has been reported here as well.
