Located in High Point State Park is the abandoned town of Doodletown. The residence of mostly workers at a local mine, when the mine was played on in the fifties, New Jersey decided that they were going to absorb the land into the state park. The houses were all torn down, leaving only the foundations, and the town cemetary. Gravestones go back to the 18th century, up to the present (apparently people born there still have the option to be buried there. Someone visiting a deceased relative left this crown of vines hanging on the fence.
