Another Halloween gone by. This year I heard of something new to check out so I asked Tom and Karole if they’d like to join me on a trip out to Ione, to see the Haunted Preston Castle.
We started the evening with a wonderful dinner at Indian Oven.
Then we headed out to Ione. Driving through the dark we approached town and spied our first view of the Preston Castle. The building itself is pretty impressive, large stone walls with tall towers set on top a hill overlooking the town. Add to that the opportunity to tour it and walk through its halls in near darkness. It really was a spooktacular evening. They did the usual ‘haunt’ setups as well as some original ones but really it was the ambience of the location that truly made the evening. Between the old massive construction, crumbling walls, creaky floors and its varied history as a prison with more than one violent death during its recorded history. definitely an ideal Halloween haunt.
