So this past week I received so many messages, tweets and emails about this “mystery” building that I have seen for a long time in Toms River. I even asked the question “Does This Fall Into the Weird New Jersey Category?” Strange oddities here in the Garden State……

This building is located on Route 37 and for me, someone who didn’t know the background of this location, it was a bit of a mystery. It’s an odd shaped little building and it’s been deserted for as long as I can remember….so you can understand my questioning it’s origination…..or maybe not lol

As it turns out this wasn’t any mystery and it didn’t even have a real unique story. It wasn’t haunted and the Jersey Devil wasn’t born there lol it was simply an abandoned gas station ⛽️ but it was fun finding out and I enjoyed all the feedback and it was great YOU reached out and shared your stories and answers to this mini mystery.

TWITTER: The property that you recently talked about on Route 37 the white building they were talking about could be weird New Jersey used to be a Hess gas station and it's been that way for a long time ~ Sam 

FACEBOOK: The white building on Rt. 37 in Toms River is an old Hess gas station ~ Jeff 

EMAIL: It was a Hess gas station. That all . Back in around 1981 or so I was just out of high school the economy was terrible you couldn’t find a job anywhere I applied there to pump gas. ( didn’t get hired lol) . Interestingly no beards or facial hair was allowed. But that’s all it was a Hess station ~ Don

Thanks everyone for your input and yes it was not “Weird New Jersey” material, but we did solve a mystery and we learned something :)
