Stroll the carriage road through Laurel Grove Cemetery to visit Tri-State Rock, the famous landmark where New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania meet at the convergence of the Neversink and Delaware Rivers.

It’s obvious that the renowned landscape architect, Howard Daniels, who designed this site in 1855, intended it to serve as a park as well as a final resting place for the departed. It’s not likely he could have imagined the unexplained crashing sounds that occasionally disturb the peace of this beautiful setting, or the woman dressed in a flowing white gown who suddenly appears from behind a mausoleum, runs  from river to river, then disappears.

Port Jervis Police Detective, Mike Worden, also a paranormal investigator and author of “Ghost Detective” (2009), has personally witnessed these ghostly activities, and is mystified by the “abnormal readings” in the area.
