House of Shadows

Visit Website Add to My Favorites

***SOLD OUT 10/23***

The House of Shadows is one of the scariest, most elaborate haunted houses around. This ominous building was built in the 1930's and was used as an infirmary for a child care center for dependent and neglected youth. It was later used as a care center for the elderly. The House has long been rumored to really be haunted by spirits who can't find rest.

All proceeds from ticket sales at the House of Shadows benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Sparta. If you are feeling brave, come visit the House, located on Osborne Drive, just down the road from the Boys & Girls Club.

Not So Scary:
This is the best option for the young or faint of heart. Characters will not jump out at you, and a flashlight will be provided. This is a great way for families with small children to enjoy the Halloween experience without being terrified.

Very Scary:
We dare you to try this! Your heart will begin to race and you will want to turn back. You won't escape the thrill of each chamber as they get more and more twisted and bone-chilling. Your senses will become heightened and you may lose your way. Hopefully, you'll make it out...
