Why is Atlantic City So Haunted?

Long before high-rise hotels, casinos, and beachside shops peppered the Atlantic City coastline, the Lenni Lenape tribe spent their summers on its beach. For 12,000 years, these indigenous people enjoyed the coastal town in relative peace. Then, in 1783, the first known settler came to Atlantic City to set up a year-round home.

Over the next century, Atlantic City would go from relatively unknown to a coastal paradise for pleasure seekers. But beneath the frivolity, a darkness festered. Boardwalk freak shows featured baby incubators, which housed sleeping premature infants on life support. These grotesque displays of human fragility accompanied whispers of city-wide corruption.

In 1920, organized crime sunk its claws into the beach town. The ability for people to drink freely in the city set in motion a history of corruption. Atlantic City also bore witness to the horrors of war. During World War II, Atlantic City served as a training site for military recruits, and its hotels were turned into makeshift hospitals and rehabilitation centers for wounded soldiers. Did these souls ever truly leave?

Even after the city’s decline in the ‘60s, a different kind of visitor arrived: those seeking solace, or perhaps escape, in their final moments. It seems that some spirits found neither. Atlantic City beckons with a deep and restless history. Go beyond the flashing lights and explore Atlantic City’s haunted past with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours.
