We continued to operate the Hustonville Haunted Castle until 2012 when we bought the old Insane Asylum on College Street (behind PBK Bank). We dismantled the Haunted Castle moving everything to the now famous "Asylum".
In 2014 three more Haunted Attractions came into Hustonville, Terror in the Woods, operated by David Couch, The Haunted Funeral Home, operated by, Sean Reardon and Zombie Paintball ,operated by Eugene Crowe.
The three new Haunts along with the Asylum, operated by Fred McCoy decided that since this was our 20th year we would give back to Lincoln County and the community. All four Haunts decided to team up with various community groups and charities And give a portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold, to the Charities listed below.

The ski lifts are closed, the lodges are locked, and the parking lot is empty, . . . but if you close your eyes and listen close, the hair on the back of your neck will start to stand up straight. Footsteps in the attic, lights going on and off.
This mental institute is in a state of absolute chaos. The patients have overrun the staff. Doctors, nurses, and security guards they are all dead. Be extremely careful as you navigate the facility. Many of these patients have been here for decades. They know every twist and turn, every dark corner, every shortcut. You won't see them coming, but they will see you. They are dangerous, and they are on the loose.
As for the Ski Lifts and the Lodges we were joking,lol
Once again Besthaunts.com has selected a Hustonville, Kentucky Haunted Attraction as the
BEST IN STATE!
and the "2013 Winner for Best Haunted House in the State of Kentucky" is
This Two story house was built in the late 1800s by the town Marshal, Harold Stokes. Back in those days it was considered a mansion. It was one of the nicest homes in Hanging Fork. Which was the original name for Hustonville.
The original name was derived after two men were caught stealing horses from the stable at the end of the street. They were brought to the Marshals home where he allowed the towns people to hang the horse thieves in his front yard to serve as an example. One was hung from each tree, out front. Needless to say there was never another horse stolen while he was the Marshal.
Marshal Stokes was assassinated while standing on the Northeastern corner of his front porch in 1920. The assassin was never caught. It was always thought to have been one of the hanging victim’s brothers seeking revenge on the Marshal.
In 1922, the County paid back taxes on the house and turned it into a house for the mentally ill. They named it, The Asylum. The house was used as an Asylum until it was shut down by the state after one of the orderlies went crazy and killed five of the patients. He did this on Friday, the 13th day of October in 1944. Some blamed it on the full moon.
The orderly was Frank Smith he murdered the (2) men and (3) women in various ways. Using whatever means he had. He stabbed some. He doused one with paint thinner and set him on fire. He used the states low voltage electric chair which was used back then for what they called "shock treatment". Frank reaped havoc on the helpless mentally disturbed patients and he was never found.
We have pretty much left the place as it was back then. It has been closed for over 32 years, but now in 2013 we are going to open it up to the public. As we feel it is truly haunted.
If you want to see where some of Kentucky’s most gruesome history was made you might enjoy the tour. (You morbid person you)
