Haunted Mansion Shuts Down

Search for new leadership falls short

The Haunted Mansion is closing its doors. During the search for new community members to join the core leadership team, a number of people did volunteer, but not enough to fill the vacant core leadership positions.

Although the group has the assistance of more than 500 volunteers annually, much of the work falls to the core leadership team, whose members – people in the community who already had full-time jobs but still worked to support the kids – have dedicated more than 4,000 volunteer hours each year. Understandably, life changes have meant that some core leadership team members have had to step back from this commitment.

During its 14-year history, this Southern Door school-wide fundraising event has expanded to include a corn maze, trail, bus ride, paintball, escape room and mansion. In total, the Haunted Mansion has raised more than $415,000 for pre-K–12 student programs in the Southern Door County School District and earned the title as the Fan Favorite Northeast Region Haunted Attraction for 10 years.
