The house at 108 Ocean Ave in Amityville, New York has become an infamous icon in both fictional horror circles and with those with an interest in true-life stories of paranormal phenomena.

Over the years it has also become an unofficial tourist attraction as well, with people stopping to gape at the house and pose for photographs with the house as a backdrop.

Many times it has even been suggested that the dutch colonial home should be converted into a tourist attraction such as a bed and breakfast style lodging accommodation or a paranormal museum.

Add those ideas to others including the intense desire by paranormal investigation teams to have access to the house and conduct the first known investigation of the property since the Warrens in 1976 and you have a lot of people who would like to see such a plan come to fruition.

One individual took this idea and ran with it straight to the crowdfunding website ‘Go Fund Me‘ in June of this year.

Although the idea of being able to actually walk into the Amityville Horror House and see the locations where not only a brutal multiple murder occurred but also the site of one of the most famous haunting cases in recorded history seems like a dream come true, don’t pack your bags just yet.

There are many factors that scream ‘get out’ at any potential investor in such a scheme.

Usually I don’t post many news items that involve individual paranormal investigators or groups unless they have captured something interesting, but in this case I wanted to point out this story as it someone within the community doing something for a charitable cause.

Thomas Warrington from Sleaford will spend 24 hours in a haunted nuclear bunker from the 1950’s to raise money for Cancer Research UK in May of this year.

The bunker, which is one hundred and twenty-five feet below ground was decommissioned in the 1990’s and now is used for historical tours. The bunker can be entered from a passageway from the cottage that sits above it in Essex.

Warrington seems to be excited about the opportunity as well, judging from his statements about the upcoming charity event:

Late last year the United States Postal service revealed that they will be producing a Halloween set of forever stamps featuring photographs of four carved pumpkins in the spirit of the Fall holiday.

This week they released word that the stamps would make their debut in self proclaimed ‘Halloween Capital of the World,’ Anoka,  Minnesota, which celebrates the holiday with events like large parades, a fitness walk and a house decorating contest.

Choosing Anoka might have been a no brainer for the Postal Service, as the town has an interesting history with the holiday that has gone on for almost one hundred years…
