Scariest Haunted House In West Michigan…EVER!
I’m pretty old…school. So I can say without a doubt on Halloween, the scariest haunted house that ever was in West Michigan was….back when I was a kid. Mid 70’s….’74 if I remember correctly. My Aunt and Uncle and my 2 cousins (who were older than me…by about 10 years) who lived in Midland always came over to the west side of the state around Halloween, and took us to….
The old house on Old 131 just south of 84th street. That was by far the scariest haunted house ever. It’s a family house now. The new owners bought it and remodeled it a few years ago, but you can still see it off 131.
Now granted I was 4 at the time (back when kids 4 years old could go to a haunted house and not be sheltered from that kind of crap) but i remember having nightmares for days after. Like Billy Joel sang, “They don’t write ’em like that anymore” and they don’t make em like that anymore.
No computer graphics or hi tech stuff…just scare-the-out-of-you stuff…Ghosts, goblins, people with heads cut off, ya know…scary stuff. Good Times…Good Times!
