Known to the area as one of the longest running haunted houses, St. Rita School for the Deaf’s Haunted House will be closing its doors this year to scare-seeking folks.
The annual non-profit haunted house, located inside a Civil War era farm house, had been used as a fundraiser for the school but Angie Frith, associate executive director at St. Rita’s, released a statement saying that the haunt would not be running this year due to, “dwindling crowds and income.”
As a silver lining to this end of an era, Greater Springdale Jaycees who previously supported St. Rita’s Haunted House, indicated that they may be planning to begin a new haunted house somewhere else in the area.
