If the beautiful weather continues it’s a great time to hunt down a pumpkin or visit a haunted house.
The places listed below certainly doesn’t cover every place with pumpkins (let me know if you want your business added to the list) and some of them are not really “pumpkin patches” but do offer pumpkins for sale, hay rides and/or corn mazes.
Check each site for more detailed information.

From the truly haunted at the Sedamsville Rectory
“The Midwest Preservation Society began renovations of the Sedamsville Rectory in March 2011. The Sedamsville Rectory was built over 120 years ag and the Midwest Preservation Society is working hard to restore it back to its original condition. The facility has over 6000 square feet of space and four levels. On the first level, it has a parlor, living room, library, formal dining room, a kitchen as well as a bathroom. The kitchen has a staircase leading up to the second level where the servant’s quarters are located. The second level has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a beautiful staircase going to the first floor. There is also a staircase leading up to the huge attic. The Rectory also has a full basement, which is divided into four separate areas.”

“The Mt. Healthy Haunted Hall got its start in 1990 with only the main building featuring scenes. Since then the Haunted Hall has expanded to include not only the house but also five tents, backyard areas, and one giant vortex! The Haunted Hall has a number of classic favorites such as Wolfman, Frankenstein, and Zombies. The Haunted Hall also prides itself on its original props and scenes such as Bug Boy and the Reverend Emmett Rotts.
This year the Haunted Hall features more than 20 scenes with several new scenes you won’t want to miss!
The Haunted Hall is sponsored by the Madonna Council Knights of Columbus and assisted by youth organizations. The Haunted Hall benefits these groups and other charities.”
