Legendary Halloween House Decor - Downtown Silver Spring, MD

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc MD 82788 DC SP97220

My neighbor Joseph would decorate Dramtically for every holiday.  His Decorating of the House was Legend in the Neighborhood for many years.  Kids and adults alike were mesmerized every Halloween and at Christmas Time.

The kids in the area would all flock to his house for Trick or Treaters, even from other neighborhoods that were further away or in another county.  Word always got around.  I always wondered how much candy he had to have to survive Halloween.

It's been quite a few years now that Joseph has moved away, there are new owners of the house now.  The new owners have a much more "simple" idea and style of decorating, maybe a few mums and a pumpkin on the front porch.


I took pictures of the Halloween, the 4th of July and Xmas jobs Joseph has done through the years.  Sadly, I can not find any pictures of his Christmas displays.  This is too bad, because the Xmas display was always the most extravagant, each year was different and each year there were more and more lights and features to that display.  I hope some other neighborhood is now enjoying the holidays as much as the people in this Silver Spring Neighborhood did while Joseph lived here!

there is a mansion in the Back Bay that really goes all out on Halloween...grave yard, ghosts, zombies, witches...spider webs all over the house.
