The Jersey Devil

The Jersey Devil

This week, with people starting to head to the jersey shore for summer vacation, we thought it might be interesting to take a look at the Jersey Devil (also known as the Leeds Devil). For almost 250 years Jerseyans have told tales of this mythical beast that stalks the Pine Barrens and terrorizes local residents. There has been an evolving folklore that surrounds the Jersey Devil and even if the monster isn’t real it’s inspired some real life hysteria. So today we’re going to take a closer look at the Jersey Devil and its Philadelphia Origins. 


Check out the visual companion below to see some images of the Jersey Devil.
