The last Breckinridge Haunted House opened its doors to the community from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Halloween night. Children and their parents shrieked and sweated as they walked through the house. The scenario was that Breckinridge was the site of a nuclear meltdown and people were exploring the ruins for the first time.
Breckinridge students also used the haunted house as a forum to spread awareness about Breckinridge’s upcoming closure. People coming out of the haunted house wrote messages in support of the haunted house and Breckinridge. One read, “It’s a community tradition. Not to self: don’t kill the community.” Breckinridge students plan to give these “Save Breck” cards to Dean Boyer.
