A haunted halloween

The annual haunting we all know as Halloween falls a Monday this year. So, to prepare for ghouls, candy and costumes, we head south to Jasper County for the spooky tale of a haunted house dating back to 1849. And autism theater has made its way to Columbia, Missouri.

Featuring a pirate with Asperger’s named Weird Beard, KBIA’s Elizabeth Trovall  has more on the Spectrum Ensemble’s brand new production. The sense-sensitive play opens Saturday, November 29 at the Berlin Theatre.

On Halloween, a sure spook is steeped in history. The historic Kendrick House in Carthage, Missouri is one of the last standing homes from the pre-Civil War era. Today, the house stands as both a museum commemorating its involvement in the War, as well as a site where some say paranormal activity has taken place. Rebekah Clark shares how the grounds were used during the Civil War, and tells of some local controversy about the haunting of the house.
