Haunted Jail Halloween is back

The Haunted Jail Halloween is back at Franklin County’s Old Jail this year. The Franklin County Historical Society hosts its annual haunted jail fundraiser October 21-22 and October 28-29 from 7-10 p.m.

This year’s theme is The Night of the Haunted Dead.

Guests will encounter ghosts, goblins, and other haunts as they traverse four floors of the jail; including the three story cellblock and dungeon areas. The event has expanded from last year, when over 2,000 people attended.

The cost is $12 for adults and $7 for children 12 and under; payable at the door or online at franklinhistorical.org. Cash and credit cards are accepted.

The event benefits the nonprofit Society.

This year’s gold sponsors are Bridgett’s Beach House and Volvo Construction Equipment. Silver sponsors are Chambersburg Dental Associates, Adams Electric and Salzman-Hughes PC.

Built in 1818, The Old Jail, located at the corner of King and Second Streets, is the home of the Franklin County Historical Society, founded in 1898. Each year the Society serves thousands through its tours, genealogy library, events, and educational presentations.
