BRILLIANT, OH(WTRF)-Just in time for all things spooky and creepy, the Wells Township Haunted House is only days away from creaking its doors back open.

Even the untold story behind the house is enough for a good spook.

Built in the 19th century, this house is said to be haunted. A while back, it’s store bodies of soldiers killed in the Civil War, and all these years later, it’s one of the top attractions around here: A promise Sean Norman, who’s behind it all, intends to keep.

It’s the haunted house’s 18th season: Still known for its interaction element, still packed with a couple dozens of rooms, each with its own theme, and it all keeps you on the edge of your seat the moment you step inside.

“Then you go around to the front of the house and all of a sudden your whole mindset changes. You know you’re about to go into what is known as the Wells Township Haunted House, and everything about it changes. It’s no longer a rock concert atmosphere. It’s in a moment.”

You also don’t go in alone, like most haunted houses, but with the tour guide who takes you through the scenes that come to life along the way.
