Chair House

West Creek, New Jersey

This beautiful 1873 Second Empire has a chair on its roof, and no one's certain why. According to Roadside America the chair was placed there as a gag by a previous owner. Weird NJ speculates the chair was a sign to passing sailors that indicated they could stop to rest at the house. Another urban legend states the chair was placed there to calm a spirit that violently haunted the property.
