You read it here, and it has since become a hot topic among Cooleristas, many of whom are not willing to give up the ghost of a secret pool, despite floorplans of the Mount Hebron school’s basement and other hard evidence.
When I was at Mt. Hebron, there was this dead end section in the back and locked doors leading from the locker room and from outside. Whereever they went we weren’t allowed and the teachers said it was the pool….someone drowned and they closed it.
We admit we’d like to know what lies behind those locked doors, if they, in fact, exist? If there is a pool, does that cancel plans for the one at Elm Street? And who’s going to write the letter to Weird NJ? The story’s longevity may have something to do with an eerily familiar bit of folklore that appeared as The Tale of The Deadman’s Float, an episode of Nickelodeon’s now-defunct Are You Afraid of the Dark?
