Venerable Halloween tradition moves to new northside location

The venerable Huntington Halloweentime attraction Haunted Hotel: 13th Floor has moved.

After being located in downtown Huntington at 511 N. Jefferson St. for several years, the attraction has moved to 1885 N. Jefferson St., which is the former Niswander car dealership.

The change in venue prompted a change in format for the Haunted Hotel, says owner Brett Molitor. This year, the attraction is titled “Haunted Hotel: 13th Floor – Hooded” and sees attendees outfitted with blindfolds and hoods. Deprived of their sight, they must then navigate their way out of the venue.
