Haunted house will be fall fundraiser

By Leigh Anne Butler

Many of us say we don’t like to be scared, but Halloween proves otherwise. Visiting a haunted house can be both terrifying and fun. This October, The Guest House in Tallassee will be the scene for a spooky Halloween adventure.

To raise money for the Tallassee High School soccer team, Corrie Sid, owner of The Guest House, has volunteered her venue to provide a fun and safe experience while helping the growing athletic program.

"When Corrie, from Grove Station, approached me about having the THS soccer teams help her provide a service to our community of course we were all in,” explained Matthew Tarpley, Tallassee High School soccer coach. “Providing the Tallassee community and the River Region as a whole with a Haunted House during October was a no-brainer. Part of the mission of our soccer program is to teach our players the value of serving others, and volunteering to give our community something they will enjoy was an easy decision!"

“We’re so excited to partner with the soccer team and give them some funds from this fundraiser and pull off a haunted house in Tallassee,” Sid added.

Sid purchased The Guest House from the City of Tallassee in September 2018. The Guest House was built by Mount Vernon Mills in the 1920s to house visitors to the mill.

“There have been quite a few [haunted] experiences at the Guest House,” Sid said. “This will be fun!”
