The Clinton Chamber of Commerce's Terror on Washington Street haunted house opened up this past weekend.

The 17th annual haunted house has returned for the season. Executive Director of the Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce Marian Brisard explains the haunted house has not always been the "Terror on Washington Street". In fact, for the first several years it made several appearances throughout Clinton before permanently being located on Washington Street.

The Haunted House has grown to such a big event that people from different areas around DeWitt County come to be a part of it. With the size of the event, the house takes up to 50 volunteers helping out to function on any given night.

The Haunted House obviously would not be possible through the event without the many volunteers that come out. However, Brisard explains many volunteers lent a hand in upgrading the house this year. She says earlier in the spring, a group went as far as attending a workshop to learn how to improve the Haunted House. Brisard feels the improvements will certainly bring some added thrills to those who attend.
