If you wanted to be scared in late 1970s or early 1980s New Jersey, you had plenty of Haunted House options. One of the most storied was Brigantine Castle which was located by the beach in Brigantine, New Jersey at the corner of 14th Street and Brigantine Avenue. It was built in 1976 and was a big hit. They did so well that they ran these commercial for the attraction statewide, that quickly became the talk of my town.
Sadly in 1982 it was badly damaged in a storm. That coupled with a declining popularity caused the Castle to close in 1984. In 1987, the place burned to the ground and became another entry in New Jersey folklore and mythology.
