Small Town Secrets


Celebration, FL/ Ong's Hat, NJ

Season 4, Ep. 6

Celebration Florida lives close to Disney World and with good reason. The town with a current population of 7,427 was started being developed in 1996 by The Walt Disney Company itself. It is not some Disney themed town, in fact, Disney is now mostly “hands-off”. But in 2000 and 2001 a man named calling himself John Titor started posting from this small town in Florida. John claimed to be a time traveler from the year 2036 sent back with a very important mission to save his world line.’’

Ong’s Hat WAS a place set deep in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.  The 17th-century town was more of an outpost with just a few buildings.  It was known as a rowdy place.  The town got its name from a man named Jacob Ong who after a fight with a woman threw his beloved hat up in the air.  It become stuck in a tree and he never retrieved it.  But Ong’s Hat may have served a different purpose in more modern times, it may have been a place where fringe scientists and cultist gathered to travel into other dimensions.
