CASTLE HALLOWEEN MUSEUM
AN ARCHAEOLOGY OF HALLOWEEN AND ITS PERIPHERY IN FACTS, FICTION AND FANTASY
by Pamela E. Apkarian-Russell, The Halloween Queen ®
The newly opened Castle Halloween is at 577 Boggs Run Road in Benwood , West VA. The old Boggs Run Elementary School is being renovated to accommodate the World Renowned Halloween Queen's collection of every Halloween-related object imaginable from 1860 to the present.
The Museum is not a Haunted House or a carnival Fun House but rather a showplace of the most comprehensive Halloween collection ever assembled. There are no trick mirrors or gory creatures popping out of dark corners. It is more of a gold-mine for anyone with an interest in antiques, postcards, history, folk art, memorabilia and vintage collecting.
