We have gone to Monmouth Battlefield to hike and there is plenty of open space to get a nice walk in. Monmouth Battlefield State Park also has a lot of history and they have a little museum that you can check out when you go to the park.
According to an article in Only In Your State, "Over the years, visitors, researchers, and ghost hunters have noticed all sorts of paranormal happenings here."
'd be curious to hear if anyone has seen anything "spooky" on the battlefield. Many of the open fields at the park were part of the Battle of Monmouth.
Halloween is next month so maybe a trip to Monmouth Battlefield State Park would be appropriate at this time of year. Personally, my wife and I did not encounter any ghosts on the battlefield, but it is spooky to think you are walking where so many fought hundreds of years ago.
"If you visit on a calm, quiet day, keep your ears perked. You might hear a sad wail in a warm summer breeze."
