Located in the Port Monmouth section of Middletown, The Spy House's correct name is the Seabrook-Wilson Homestead, but it has acquired its nickname due to its ghostly tours and visitors. Originally built circa 1650, during the revolutionary war, this homestead was a tavern known to be a popular drinking spot for the redcoats.
The legend says the owner of the tavern, Thomas Seabrook, was a spy of sorts and a part of the New Jersey Militia. Seabrook was known for getting the British troops sloppy drunk so they would spill all of the military's secrets. After a short while, in 1776, the house was dubbed the spy house, known for its owner at the time, giving ghastly tours of the building. Eventually, paranormal investigations were conducted. Many started to report ghostly apparitions in the windows and even a young ghost boy!
