The Legend of Cyrus Grain continues to grow as his family's old farm land has been developed into a shopping center. Cyrus seekers have documented videos of a shadowy figure they believe to be Cyrus Grain along the family's last area of undeveloped land, legend has it that Cyrus will do whatever it takes to keep all trespassers off what he believes to be the last of his family's land. Cyrus has been seen lurking in the woods, between buildings, and along the private roads at DePiero's Farmstand in Montvale NJ. Do you and your friends have the nerve to ride North Jersey's Best Haunted Hayride and search for Cyrus?
