The Lindbergh home in New Jersey

Highfields was the home of Charles and Anne Lindbergh, the famous aviators. It was the location of the Lindbergh kidnapping, after which it was turned into a rehabilitation centre.

Over two months later, the baby’s body was discovered a short distance from Highfields in Hopewell Township with a massive skull fracture.

After a ling investigation, lasting more than two-years, Bruno Richard Hauptmann was arrested, tried in one of the so-called trials of the century, and convicted of the crime. He was executed by electric chair at New Jersey State Prison on April 3, 1936.
