THE STORY BEHIND THE HAUNTED HOUSE
In the 1960s, Happy Horace Dickerson, a circus clown, fell in love and wed a fellow circus act, Mimi the snake charmer. In 1970, the two ventured out with an old, junky carnival traveling to small towns across the midwest. The couple was soon met with their first and only child, a daughter with the namesake of her father, Horace Jr. Yes they named their daughter, Horace Jr.
A few years after the birth of their daughter, Horace suffered injuries when the Ferris wheel they were setting up collapsed, leaving him wheelchair bound for the remainder of his life and his wife Mimi succumbed to her injuries. Neither Horace nor his daughter, Horace Jr., who was 8 by then would ever be the same. Horace was in and out of mental institutions, claiming to have been abducted by aliens and his daughter was possessed by the devil. When released, Horace with the help of his daughter, lured unsuspecting customers to his seemingly fake haunted attraction.
It was here that his lust for evil began. He relentlessly tortured and mutilated victims aided by his army of mentally unstable outcasts, carneys, and clowns, all while whistling happy tunes. Horace was put to death in 1976 after countless bodies were recovered from his maniacal midway. Those who travel amongst those grounds today have claimed to smell popcorn and cotton candy. It’s also been reported that sounds of the midway including clown laughs and Horace’s whistling have been heard at the sites where those heinous acts were carried out. People have even reported hearing echoes of the last words Horace spoke before being put to death; “the smile was only painted on”
