Description

This tiny village in New Jersey has lived many lives... Originally established in the early 1700s, the small village of Feltville existed in several forms, including a mill town, a religious community, and a mountain resort, but with each new transformation, the village gradually became a ghost village. The small village, now known as Feltville, was first settled by Long Island immigrant Peter Willcox, who built a sawmill there. New Jersey continued to grow around Willcox's land. In the middle of the 1800s, the site was bought by David Felt, another owner who was looking for cheaper properties outside of New York City. This large mill gave birth to its own village, which Felt dubbed “Feltville”. A staunchly religious man, Felt forced citizens to attend regular church services, earning him the nickname “King David”. By the end of the 1800s, Felt sold the land, and while trying to restore the remaining buildings, none succeeded, and the tiny settlement soon became known as the “abandoned village”. However, the land on which the buildings still stood eventually changed hands and became a place for a mountain resort. Unfortunately, the much more attractive Jersey coast soon put a nail in this incarnation's coffin, and Feltville was abandoned again. Feltville is still a ghost village today. Many of the original buildings are still standing, and the village is a popular tourist attraction for New Jersey history buffs.
