Haunted Halloween Barn 2018 - Portsmouth New Hampshire

Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

A Seacoast Halloween tradition that is not to be missed...

Make sure you stop by the 

Portsmouth Haunted Barn for a frightening Halloween treat!


Located at 292 Middle Road, Portsmouth NH


Every night in October the residents kindly open their yard and barn to the public as a memorable and enjoyable Halloween gift to the city.

It's FREE to enter.

Donations appreciated!

Don't let the fact that it's free fool you....

it's better than many of the events you have to pay to enter.



The theme changes every year and every year more props are added.

I've never been disappointed in the eleven years I've visited this great Halloween event.



There are no actors....no spooky, chain-saw carrying monsters.

It's simply a walk-thru experience to enjoy at your own pace.




Some of the scenes are pretty graphic and disturbing and may not be appropriate for small children.  


Open every evening in October 5:30pm - 9:00pm

This was the last year of this event.  No longer happening.

HI Sharon... if that's your kind of Halloween spookiness, this looks like a great event (especially for free).

Good Morning Sharon Tara 

I can't go to Haunted Houses anymore. The last one I went to someone jumped out at me and scared the xxxx out of me and I instinctively took a swing and clocked the guy. Thus, I can no longer go to events such as these BUT it looks like so much fun!!!

I had to laugh at comment #4.  I don't like spooky events. We do have an event similar to this a barn with all the spooky things as well. These events seem to be a big success.

That looks like a very fun place to visit and not having to pay to visit it makes it even more enticing!

Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®  I have always loved them. We did a couple of other haunts this year too. 

Brian England  You would fit right in with your costume. LOL

I don't think they have ever done a pirate theme....I would like to see that.

Hannah Williams  We go every year. I would miss it if we moved away.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886  It's quite overwhelming to me to imagine the cost and the storage and the TIME involved!

Kimo Stowell  Once again you have sucked me right in. I really didn't think I could do it this year. Thank you for getting me in the spirit!

Sharon Tara - Out of all the holidays, Halloween is my least favorite. HOWEVER, I think I could dig that Haunted Halloween Barn and have a really good time!

I hope your kiddo's have a Monster Mash Blast!

Hi Sharon- my old hairdresser loved participating in the Halloween Fright Night in West Palm Beach. She did Halloween makeup. Your haunted barn there looks like fun but yes, I can see why really young children might be frightened.

Roy Kelley  I get phone calls from people all the time asking about it because of my posts!

Grant Schneider  I've gone with two of the grands. The others are too afraid.

Wow!  These folks really go all out to get some extra manure for their fields.  I guess that's why they are scaring the sh*t out of people.
