Castle Halloween Museum.

Castle Halloween Museum

Fantastic house with two floors crammed with Halloween objects of every -- and I mean every -- description, from sculptures and artwork to cheap novelty items. The Halloween Queen herself, Pamela E. Apkarian-Russel, gives a fun and interesting tour. We had a great time! An older couple run the place and it is their home, so be considerate!
