Haunted House

Each year as the air turns crisp, leaves begin to fall and the scent of pumpkin spice lattes fills the atmosphere, we know a certain season has arrived. Fall! It’s when the kids go back to school, college football season kicks off, and things get just a tiny bit more spooky. And there’s no better time than this, it seems, to embark on a ghost hunting adventure (or two).
