History
Started with a 2 homemade tombstones around 2007. have only found pics back to 2010. 2015 was the year I stepped it up and will be in another showcase. Moved in July of 2019 so will have a new Haunt starting this year. Nearly everything is custom built, except the skeletons. You may catch a glimpse of my 2 sons in some of the pictures.
2010: Sorry for the crappy pictures, had a crappy camera! looking for some better pictures buried away somewhere. Trying to find some pics for 2010.

If you can't ready the names, This is Abbey Normal and Hans Delbruck, YES I'm a hug Young Frankenstein fan. Bonus on Abbey, I hook a fog machine to the back and it pours out of the mouth.

Here you can see the tombstones were still just painted plywood. They get major face-lift in 2015 and remodel in 2018. Last year for this scarecrow, he caught on fire (you notice that is a running theme with me)
