2017 Haunted Halloween Barn in Portsmouth New Hampshire

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

The Haunted Halloween Barn

on Middle Road in Portsmouth, New Hampshire

is a Seacoast Halloween tradition.

 

I wrote about this last year, and several other years, but it's worth repeating...

Every night in October, except Mondays, the residents of 292 Middle Road open their yard and barn to the public as a Halloween gift to the city.

 

Open Tuesday - Sunday through October 31

5:30pm - 9:00pm

(Weather permitting)

 

Every year the theme changes and more props are added.

I've been going for ten years and I've never been disappointed.  

 

It is a totally FREE event!

 

Don't let the free admission fool you....it's far better than some events that charge admission!  

 

This is a walk-thru experience to enjoy at your own pace.

There are no creepy characters jumping out at you....no live actors involved.

But some of the props do have moving parts that might surprise you.

 

Some of the scenes are pretty graphic and disturbing and

may not be appropriate for small children.

UPDATE 2019:  NO LONGER RUNNING THIS EVENT

Brian England  And I would be happy to bring you! It's amazing that it's a private residence. I cannot imagine the storage of all this stuff!

Hi Sharon - Wooooo! That's quite a Halloween display, and you're right - it's better than a lot of others that charge admission.

Sharon- I bet you can't wait for the grand kiddies to be old enough to take to this!  That's so generous of the residents there to provide this each year.

Dick Greenberg  The pictures just don't do it justice. It's quite impressive. Each year I'm more amazed at what this family is capable of.

Kathy Streib  A family tradition....for sure! The Portsmouth Halloween Parade is pretty amazing too. Portsmouth takes the holiday seriously!

Alex Gandel  Everyone who goes enjoys it. The detail and the creativity is something many appreciate.

Where ever you are, that's where I'll be!

Looks like a lot of fun.  I don't think that just the kids would be scared.  I know I would be too.  What a wonderful thing the owners do for your city.

Marie-Denise Kratsios  I'm sure there are plenty of people who would not be comfortable. Not just the fright factor.... It's very hard this time of year for families who have lost someone to violence to see all this stuff.

Sharon, sounds like a fun experience, and without anyone jumping out at you, it will be less frightening!

Joan Cox   Being able to go at your leisure is wonderful.

There is another event in the area that has the jumping out at you characters  and it's hard core frightening. My daughter and I go every year to one of their daylight events that they offer without the characters and it's really enjoyable to walk throught.

From coast to coast Halloween is a big money maker for manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and shippers. And of course, kids and grownups have a great time. Everyone wins!

Dave Halpern  This barn is keeping the Halloween manufacturers in business for sure. At least they offer their fabulous experience to the public for free so now cost to us!
