Mize Cemetery & Haunt

The haunt was started in 2006 as a small yard haunt with a few of the props hand built. Over the last 4 years, these have been improved upon, and more props built. Now 75% of the haunt is hand built props.

in 2008 we extended the haunt into the garage. Again, this has been added to and improved upon over the last 3 years.

In 2009, we decided to collect non perishable food for a local food bank, and the food collection for 2010 amounted to 580lb of non perishable foods.

Due to the success of the haunt, together with an article on the haunt being featured our local newspaper, we were invite to present a workshop at the 2011 West Coast Haunters Convention, as well as being provided with a booth for the 3 day show, where we were able to showcase some of our props and pass on prop making ideas to fellow haunters.


We have been able to improve on the quality of some of the displays thanks to the generosity of family, friends, work associates and fellow haunters.

We hope to keep the haunt going for many years to come and welcome any help or donations that will make this a success
