My Morbid Mind - Lacey

My Morbid Mind Haunted House began as a Halloween display on the front porch of a house in suburban Lacey. Trick or Treaters would creep through a small gauntlet of horrors to reach the front door and receive their rewards. This was only the beginning for "Master of the Macabre" Kevin Noah. He is the owner, chief designer, builder, director, and supervisor for what has become the "best haunt in the state"! Together with his wife and two sons, they moved from the front porch to converting their entire backyard into a haunt. When that proved to be inadequate for their ever-growing following, they set out looking for a larger venue.

The Noahs didn't have to look far. Just down the road, an old, huge barn looked like the perfect place to set-up shop. Fortunately for Kevin, the owners Tom & Mona, were intrigued by the prospect of setting up the event on their property. They agreed to share their building with all of you, and have worked hard as staff members of the haunt every year.
