From our humble beginnings, when the Haunted House was only a small stop on the Jaycee Spook Run, run by 10 people and raising a meager $500, we’ve evolved into a major production that takes more than 9 months in the planning, not to mention over 80 volunteers to keep it going during October.

Yes, volunteers. Every creature you encounter at Literally, a Haunted House, living and not, is not getting paid, but is here out of the kindness of his or her heart, brain, and guts to give you the scare of a lifetime

So, where does your admission price go? Every penny we raise goes directly into the restoration of the historic Culbertson Mansion. All of this effort brings in over $30,000 every season. Since the beginning, we’ve raised over $700,000! And you can see the results of our effort when you visit the Culbertson Mansion.

The Carriage House; however, is another story…

Originally, the Culbertson Mansion’s Carriage House sheltered the family’s horse and buggy. After the Mansion was auctioned off at the turn of the century, the Carriage House fell into disuse. During the days of the American Legion ownership from 1946 to 1964, the Carriage House was restored and reopened for parties and musical events.

In 1987, the Friends of the Culbertson Mansion started using the Carriage House for Literally, a Haunted House. Over the years, the Mansion staff and volunteers have reported unusual occurrences in the old Carriage House: electrical problems, missing items, strange sounds after hours and mysterious figures moving from room to room. It’s not unusual for the motion-activated security alarm system to get set off by something moving around late at night. A few staff members and past volunteers have even refused to work in the building because of personal experiences with the unexplained.
