Burlington County Prison Museum
The Burlington County Prison operated from 1811 through 1965 in Mount holly Township, Burlington County, NJ.
It was designed with prisoner rehabilitation in mind. The motto over the door, "Justive Which, While it Punishes, Would Endeavor to Reform the Offender", was chosen by Robert Mills.
The Burlington County Prison operated from 1811 through 1965. When it closed in 1965, it was the oldest operating prison in the United States.
It is reportedly haunted by a legless, floating spirit that moves from the entrance to the yard, a tall male in a uniform in the basement, and the third floor is claimed to have a flurry of paranormal activity. It is currently a museum.
