Hanger No. 1: Lakehurst, New Jersey

History:


Hanger No. 1 is located at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station in Lakehurst, New Jersey. It became quite infamous as it was the site of the Hindenburg disaster. On May 6, 1937, the Hindenburg (an airship) was approaching the hanger in order to dock when it caught fire. The scene quickly became one of chaos as the airship became consumed by flames. The 97 people on board (61 crew and 36 passengers) were in a rush against time and gravity to find a way out. Ultimately, the Hindenburg did fall to the ground, still aflame, killing 35 on board, as well as 1 on the ground.


The Hauntings:


Ever since the disaster, almost 84 years ago, paranormal activity has been reported at Hanger No. 1. Disembodied voices ranging from casual conversation to screams of terror have been heard. Shadow figures, bright orbs, and even apparitions have also been reported inside and around the hanger. Reports of items being moved on their own as well as feelings of ill-at-ease round out the paranormal activity at the famous crash site.
