luckily we don't have to take down all of our haunt-it's through the woods and in an huge open field. the graveyard is near the end of the trail where the woods thin out to just a couple of trees. and normally we have the regular Styrofoam or plywood/MM tombstones...
but this year i called the local monument company. after explaining that our haunt is for charity (Salvation Army and Toys For Tots) they generously donated some markers. these are samples of designs they no longer offer, mis-spellings, and old ones whose families have replaced with new ones (one is over 100 years old!) we loaded 17 marble tombstones onto our trailer yesterday and have the option of getting more! you do not want to have to move these every year- they are HEAVY... but it is an option for those of you who have the space to leave your haunt up year-round!

Congrats!!!
That's awesome.
Would love to see pictures.
The ability to leeve them out all year is great.
That way they get nice and weathered, naturally.

Hey good idea. I'm sure the places around here get miss spelled ones all the time. Might have to give them a ring and see if they are willing to give or let me purchase them for cheap.

Because I am on the historical society, I often frequent old graveyards. Well one saturday my hubby and I are at this fairly new cemetery, looking around, reading markers. I walk off to the edge of the property and there is 3 stones sitting on top of a pile of garbage bags. They were broken in many places, we went and found that, the original markers indeed had been replaced, I contacted the owner of the cemetery and he said that we could have the old ones. I am hoping I didn't bring any ghosts home with me.

Sounds Great but I would check with your local or county first before you set up a year round haunted cemetery. They just might let you do it, but besure to start on a fence to keep Drunk high school kids out. Next you need a story to go with it the cemetery im sure these nice people in here can give you imput.

we set up an aged-looking picket fence around the cemetery. where our trail is all the surrounding land is owned by members of the same family, so hopefully there won't be a problem with kids messing around. i didn't think to contact anyone about it though... *worries*
