22 Years and Scarier Than Ever!!

       Night Visions DO Exist Here!

Fall is approaching. The leaves are changing into a rainbow of colors. The cool evening air makes you shiver, as the moon climbs to show its deep orange glow just beyond the tree line. The moonlight is casting its shadows all around you as you walk toward the Jefferson County Fairgrounds Buildings. You can see faint lights in the distance and hear the screams from the buildings. You are beginning to wonder if you can make it through the maze of hallways and rooms occupied by night visions that exist here! The things that occupy these buildings seem to capture all your senses at once. It’s your turn to open the door. The adventure begins as you go through the doorway into building #4, and doesn’t end until you leave the property. This Haunting Adventure returns to Jefferson County Fairgrounds to continue testing your will to survive the horror, the dark, and the terror that lurks in every corner of your imagination. The Challenge for YOU is to complete the adventure, without screaming for mercy!

          A Few Things To Remember

  • Rain is NOT a factor, the creatures are always here, rain or not.
  • For 21 years, these dark figures have stalked all who come into their lair and these brave souls exit with Halloween Spirit in close pursuit.
  • Screams are encouraged to release some of the fear you may encounter!
  • Terror will come to you from any direction, prepare if you can.

About The Haunted Fairgrounds

For 21 Years… Ron Nowell and friends that enjoy Halloween, like Dick Ernst and Peggy Mills, who are now starting their 22nd year, decided that Jefferson County would enjoy a scary and fun filled event in October. No Fall Harvest Days for us, we wanted a true scare fest to get the heart pumping. Ron had a few good friends on the fairground board and they allowed us to start, what has become a major Halloween activity. The haunted house began in 1994. Later in 1999 Ron started Country Roads Car Club and The Haunted Fairground became a club sponsored event.
  Where does the money go? Ron and the original group decided that all money earned on this event, would go back into the community to help others less fortunate. All money earned at the Haunted Fairground less expenses, is donated to four local charities, at an awards meeting every November.
  Donations… In the past 21 years, the Haunted Fairground in Jefferson County, West Virginia has donated over $181,000.00 dollars to local Jefferson County Charities.
