We headed back out through the
entrance, pausing to look up at the cornice above the front door one last time, before
heading back to the truck and toward our next destination... leaving the doomed old high
school behind up on top of the lonely hill, hidden beneath it's cloak of green foliage.
The Shady Lady sped down the hill and back onto the main road,
ready to carry us on to our next adventure... the Scoobies were
headed to North Princeton, a huuuuge abandoned ghost-town of a facility, but we saw
security guards at the entrance, so of course we didn't even try it. We did get to drive
through it, though... and it was pretty damned incredible... well, until the security
guard spotted us and chased us out, anyway. Wish we had pics to show, though.
It was late in the day at this point, and
we didn't have anything else on our agenda, so we started to head back toward home.
Somewhere along the road, we managed to spot a treasure of a find, a grand old empty
mansion nearly hidden off the side of the road. Of course we had to pull over and
investigate! What we discovered there was beyond what any of us had ever imagined we would

say a few things. First, I love your site. It's great and filled with cool and mysterious
old abandoned buildings. Second, about Lambertville High School, I recently went there in
the evening, and there were alot of strange noises coming from the third floor. Also, I am
a chain smoker, and keep having to light up a cig to relax me, and it was very odd that
the lighter (I use a Zippo) would not work in the building at all. Could the past be
trying to protect it from another fire? It was creepy. Put me on your mailing list, and
keep me posted on this wonderful old high school. Thanks"
Another reader, Norbert, wrote, "I went to Lambertville
school twice and i read your story about your camera that the battery died, and similar
thing happened to me 1st time I went there. I had my brand new back then HP digital
camera, i took little over 100 pictures of school outside and inside and what was weird
that on the way back all those pictures were gone and corrupted so i had to go back there
again and retake pictures. But i found it very weird that for no reason all the pictures
of the school got corrupted. Just my 5 cents."
And our reader Kyle wrote, "I have been to lambertville
high school numerous times. I know the story behind the high school and all. In fact one
of my ex friends has a relative who went there at some point in her life. Anyway, my
friends and i make a regular treck to labertville high. We have been inside and out, and
in fact have some memorabilia from the old spook house. the story behind the school is it
was built in the late 1800's to early 1900's. around the year 1931 the place burned down
due to an accident in the science lab. many lives were lost. the school was rebuilt around
1941 to 1942 im not sure exactly. it was fully functional for a few more years when the
same incident happened, except the difference is that this time most of the people inside
the building perished except for a couple teachers, the principal and maybe a handful of
students. the school was never rebuilt because the money invested in it last time went
down the drain. I have seen all of the things inside. the pictures on the chalkboards, the
cold science room, etc. it is quite a fascinating place. i will be mad if they tear it
down. i know its still there as of this date, but i was not aware they were going to
GrAffiX tells us, "I have lived in NJ most of my life in
Flemington actually. A couple years ago a friend and i went to the lambertville high
school and were freaked out...in front of the entrance near the "driveway" there
was a baby carage...my friend took part of the carage too. When we were on the second
floor standing in the long hall and we clearly heard someone walk down the stairs from the
3rd floor and stand right in front of us. We didn't see anything we just heard it and felt
the presence. I have never heard anything about the school but have been looking for info
on it for a about 1 year now. I am very sensitive to these types of things and instantly
knew it was haunted but could never find any info. I do know that the last fire was in
April. Thats about all the info the historical society will give you. Thanks for adding
this school very helpful. Just dont get caught on the property the neighbors next door (my
friends family) will call the police."
