Loudon County Fire and Rescue Squad getting spooky support
LOUDON COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The All-Volunteer Loudon County Fire and Rescue Squad is getting some help from a spooky source. It's a new Halloween attraction that is, "certified haunted." That's according to the Spirit Hunters of Knoxville.
Dead Man's Farm is a new Halloween attraction that is, "certified haunted." That's according to the Spirit Hunters of Knoxville.
"You pick up voices that aren't there, you get odd pictures," says John Jamison, the founder of SHOK. "We call it haunted because haunted to me means that maybe some remnants of the past are here."
Past remains are everywhere at the farm, say owners Sarah and Jeff Linginfelter. They say authenticity was their goal with Dead Man's Farm, using old barns and building materials to create the scares.
The Linginfelters say they've been designing since last Halloween, and building for more than a month. And Friday under a full moon, they opened the door, hoping to provide a few scares alongside community support.
"We wanted to keep everything local. We had the t-shirts made at a local Lenoir City company," says Sarah Linginfelter. "We have the Loudon County police out, and we're donating to the Loudon County Fire and Rescue. We just felt like we really wanted to donate to someone who was also volunteer-run."
