The 13th Hour haunted house opens every Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights beginning in October.  New cleaning and safety measures in place.  They have an interesting story about the family of Haydens.  The people who investigated the interior of the farmhouse—residents, journalists, passers-by, media—spoke of sickening discoveries: utter squalor; human feces; bloodstained floors, walls, and ceiling; battered, rusty cages that might have been used for ghastly experiments; moldy food; dirty threadbare clothes; discolored drug bottles with unreadable labels—a real-life nightmare beyond human comprehension. A horrendous scene, a disturbingly baffling story through and through, permeated that farmhouse.
