October’s Spooky, Scary Events in Jefferson, Texas

September 20th, 2010 by carriagehouse

So you wanna be scared do you? You want to see ghosts and goblins and have things go bump in the night. Well, I can’t think of a better place to go then right here to Jefferson, Texas, the most haunted town in Texas.

The Historic Jefferson Railway has been closed for most of September so that they can retool the ride for Halloween. The steam train will reopen the first week of October for Terror on the Bayou. You’ll get the willies walking through the spooktacular Creepy Screamin’ Corn Maze, now more than an acre, which includes a walk through the Piney Woods, the Haunted Cemetery and culminates with the infamous 100 foot underground Tunnel of Doom. The Runaway Fright Train will feature the Midnight Stalker as he chases the children through the dark and spooky woods! The scenes and haunters along the railroad track will keep you at the edge of your seat and give you a laugh now and then, too.

The Grove, a real live haunted house, will be open for tour as well. Texas Monthly has named this house as the 8th most haunted place in Texas and people have been experiencing (hearing, smelling, feeling) strange things in this house for over 100 years. Tours of this spooky little house will be available by reservation only during the month of October. Call us and we would be more then happy to help you make those reservations for your visit to the Carriage House Bed and Breakfast.

There are only a few rooms left for the weekends of October and Halloween weekend. Please call us at 903-665-9511 to make your reservation or go to our website at www.carriagehousejefferson.com to take a look at our rooms and book online in real time.
