A barnful of creepiness: Shermans turn historic structure into scary event

  • Sep 30, 2015 at 2:00PM

When Dale Sherman slides open the massive door of a rustic, old barn, a musty scent immediately fills the nostrils. It’s a creepy, old place, for sure, with dusty cobwebs galore, hooks and ropes that dangle from the rafters and a large hole in the floor covered by loose boards. All things considered, it is the ideal site for the “Haunted Barn” attraction that is part of “The Haunting of Coupeville” this month.
