It can’t be confirmed Frank Lloyd Wright’s favorite holiday was Halloween but judging by the work happening at the A.D. German Warehouse, the conservancy members love it.
This year marks the third annual haunted house hosted at the A.D. German Warehouse, located at 300 S Church Street. The planners assure those who have visited in the past that this year’s rendition is bigger, scarier, DARKER, and well worth another tour. The Haunted Warehouse incorporates not only the main A.D. German Warehouse but also the basement of The 1912, the original warehouse. Visitors should prepare to be scared by the many frights and hair-raising fun that awaits.
The Haunted Warehouse will be held for two nights only, October 27th and October 28th from 6-9 p.m. For younger visitors who may not be ready for the full experience, a lights-on tour is available from 6-7 p.m. At 7 p.m., the lights will be turned off and both warehouses will be pitch black. A lantern will be the group’s only light source as they twist and turn throughout both of the warehouses to find their way out.
Volunteers are still needed to scare people for this event. Those interested in participating as a “scarer,” need to attend the last volunteer orientation on Thursday, October 26th 2023, from 5-7 p.m. at the 1912, 177 E. Haseltine Street. Volunteers under the age of 18, must have their parent/guardian accompany them to the volunteer orientation as volunteers. Parent/guardian must sign the volunteer forms. For those unable to attend this orientation will need to contact Derek Kalish prior to the volunteer orientation at email@example.com.
Purchase tickets on the Eventbrite website or on the night-of with cash at the event’s ticket booth. Tickets for adults are $15 and $10 for children. With a purchase of a Haunted Warehouse ticket, visitors will be given a free movie pass to use at either Center Cinema or Starlite Drive-in.
Proceeds from the Haunted Scarehouse event will assist paying for The 1912’s new roof.
