For many, growing up in a small town or city means a true connection with neighbors and celebrating good times together. In 2016, it’s safe to say that a part of living in Brownsville, Oregon, is the fact that we keep those warm-hearted traditions alive.
Historic Brownsville’s Haunted House, run by the American Legion Post #184, is the kind of event that children will remember most of their lives. Members and volunteers from the community gather together weeks in advance—and transform the Legion Hall on Main Street into a spectacularly spooky place.
The volunteers think of everything—if young children are too frightened as they enter the darkened doorway—they’re handed candles to help light the way. Bats and goblins, witches and pumpkins, tasty treats and fun activities await all curious and adventurous ghost-busters at the Haunted House.
If you would like to take the family, here’s what you’ll need to know—this year’s Haunted House is twice as large as usual! Admission is $2.00 or two cans of food for the food drive. You have a choice of days and times: the house opens on Saturday, October 29th, at 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. On Sunday, October 30th, the house is open from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. On Halloween Day, the house will open at noon to accommodate young children and will close at 8:00 p.m. If you’re not familiar with Brownsville, the American Legion Hall is located at 339 North Main St., right in the heart of the city.
We hope you make it your new tradition to meet our Historic Brownsville family at the American Legion Haunted House.
