Halloween Guide 2019: Haunted Houses and Spooky Spectaculars in Richmond

Haloween Scary Haunted Houses For some, Halloween is all about dressing the kids up as cute cartoon characters or heading to a friendly block party in ironic pop culture costumes. For others, Halloween isn’t Halloween unless there are enough haunted houses, horrifying sights, and sickening sounds to make a sane person go mad. If you fall in the latter group….good luck to you! I’ll be safely at home in a cartoon character costume. However, if it’s thrills that you seek, it’s thrills that we have with our all-new updated list of Halloween haunted houses, spooky spectactulars, and ghostly guided tours.

Take a look below to find all the Halloween haunted houses and ghostly gatherings your heart could desire – from murder mysteries, to historical tours, to truly terrifying attractions. And as always, if you have a favorite scary Halloween haunt that’s not on our list, be sure to let us know at cs@richmondmom.com!

In the meantime, if haunted houses and ghastly ghouls aren’t your thing, be sure to check out our Family Friendly Halloween Events (And Not-TOO-Scary Events!) in Richmond for Halloween festivals, events, and activities that are just right for the whole family.

Red Vein Haunted House 

Red Vein Haunted House weaves a deliciously dark tale of intrigue, witchcraft, mystery, and horror. As the legend tells, Lord Thomas Redvyn and his wife, Emily, came to Massachusetts from Europe in 1690. After mysterious deaths and disappearances in their Puritan community, Emily became a suspect and the Redvyns vanished…only to appear in Virginia years later. In 1781, The Providence Home for Wayward Children in Hanover County was founded by someone bearing the name Emily Redvyn, and despite the years that had passed, she was described as young and vibrant. Soon, children began disappearing and Emily Redvyn was convicted and executed as a witch. A local scientific research group discovered her sordid story while investigating a cult called The Order of Red Vein, and eventually uncovered her final resting place on the present-day site of Hanover Vegetable Farm. Unfortunately, the group disappeared under mysterious circumstances, but the mystery lives on. Is Emily still haunting the grounds? The all 2019 Theme, “The Witch’s Plague” will offer new scares, new scenes, and new characters in this ever-unfolding tale of horror.
