Scareview Grave Schoul

The School was built in the 1920's and served as a local grade school up until the late 1990's. There have been multiple sightings, noises and one-on-one encounters. There have been a couple of local paranormal teams to investigate. This year we are having a medium from Massachusettes and a national paranormal team come in for more investigating. The school now serves the community as one of the scariest hauntes houses in the state. This is one of the nation's largest non-profit haunts, ranked in the top 40 in 2015. Non perishable food donations are accepted for $2.00 off the $10.00 ticket price. Our facility is the old Fairview Grade School, which gives us 25000 square foot of scary fun. We have something for everyone, young or old, big or small. We won't keep the lights on for you. Concessions and facilities on sight. Check our review out at TheScareFactor.com Hours: Open Friday and Saturday starting in mid-September and running through October. The school is also open for appointments and small groups on a daily basis if needed.
