Exploring Jaycees Haunted House Behind the Scenes

One of the coolest things we did in 2012 was tour the 2012 East Liverpool Jaycees Haunted House.  Held in the old Elks Building on 5th Street, we were invited to tour the mayhem before it began! 

 Jaycees is one of those organizations that a town just can't do without.  The East Liverpool Jaycees handles so many things for the area, they are an essential part of the community.  You see them at places like the Pottery Festival, the annual Christmas Parade, Special Olympics, and many other aspects of the East Liverpool Community.  We appreciate the hard work they do and will always  be some of their biggest fans! 
 While I love haunted houses, the chance to walk through this awesome old building was like an opportunity I truly appreciate to this day!  I can't say ghosts walk the halls here, but memories certainly do. 
 I did a story about the old coffin they use and how it actually had dozens of dead bodies in it, as it was used for showings for those who were going to be cremated. 
Several of my crew took the chance to try out the old coffin, though they didn't know it had ever been used.....
 Jack was mildly surprised, but nothing ghostly shakes him, so he was fine with it.
Now you may ask if we investigated the building.  Well, that is a video for another time.  :)
