Hidden among the trees near Mt. Misery are the remains of the Brooksbrae Brick Factory, which has been mistakenly called the Pasadena Terra Cotta Factory for years. We’ve been to Brooksbrae numerous times, and these are probably my favorite South Jersey ruins.
There is a ghost story attached to the place as well. Supposedly one night long ago a stranger looking for a place to stay overnight came to the factory. After gaining the trust of 2 people who agreed to let him stay, he killed them and took their money. They’re said to haunt the area to this day. I’m not so sure about that; I’ve been there at night before and never had anything odd happen.
