Haunted House: The event will be held at the haunted Hannah House where on one tragic night, a group of slaves, cramped into a dark dirt-floored cellar, sit waiting for the right time to leave their hiding spot in the Hannah House, to head for the freedom of Canada on the Underground Railroad. One of them unknowingly tipped over an oil lamp, instantly igniting the fire that trapped them there for eternity. The dead are buried in the very cellar that claimed their lives, in an attempt to cover up any trace of the heartbreaking incident.
The Hannah House is looking for volunteers to help them with their Haunted House fundraising events. Please look for their booth at the Meet & Greet to sign-up!
