The MCC, in conjunction with the Murfreesboro Advertising and Tourism Commission, will continue to host the inaugural haunted house at the former Pike County Hospital building.

The haunted house is set to be open on Oct. 27-28 and 31 starting at 6 each night. The hours of 6-7 p.m. each night will be a “kid-friendlier” version of the house with no loud music, live people or bright lights. (See the chamber of commerce Facebook page for times, as a later closing time has been debated.
Admission to the show will be $10 cash for those 14 years of age and older, $3 cash for those 13 years of age through kindergarten and free for those not yet in school. Anyone using a debit card for admission fees will be charged 50-cents extra to cover processing fees.
