Guide to the Haunted Houses in Nashville

I’ve always loved everything about Halloween and horror-themed entertainment so it’s natural that I love haunted houses – the entertainment kind. Although, I love visiting actual haunted houses or alleged haunted houses at least. I think I’m pretty lucky that there are so many good options for haunted houses in Nashville.

I used to be deathly afraid of clowns and I’ll never forget the time a clown chased me from the haunted house to my car. And, yet, I keep on going back in for more. I’m no longer as afraid (I used to not be able to even look at one) but they still get my blood racing when I stumble on one in a haunted house.

This is your chance to “open fire” and protect our city. Millers Thrillers has quarantined a horde of infected zombies. They are growing stronger and are planning their evacuation routes to attack our whole city. Their intent is surviving and creating more of their kind.

Beast House – The Money-Back Haunted House

The Beast House is set in the still-standing portion of the original Isaac Kechem Mansion. Kechem’s Family was found brutally murdered within these walls before committing suicide in 1897. This building sat vacant thereafter. In 1951, the dilapidated Kechem home was revitalized and used commercially for the first time, as it was transformed into a Dinner and Nightclub (Starlite Club) – ultimately closing in 2014.

This house is considered to actually be haunted so enter at your own risk.
