Trail of Terror or the Path of Death

There are actual corpses buried within the path and grounds you will be exploring. Please try not to wake the dead as this will anger them. As you walk down the winding trails deep in the forest, it will be hard to tell if a bush is just blowing or something more sinister is in the making.

Blackwell House

At this location you will witness some of the worst nightmarish, bloody and gruesome sights imaginable. This is the actual remains and location of the Blackwell house where 5 alleged murders took place in the early 1900′s. You can experience the actual smell and sense of death around you as chills run up and down your spine. You will experience firsthand a reconstruction of the crime scene with reenactments of the horrific events according to legend. If you’re fortunate enough to survive the Blackwell House haunting and curse.

*True History and legend of the Cursed Blackwell House
You will witness and actually walk a trail that leads to the visible ruins and foundation of what was called the Blackwell house. This house was constructed in the early 1800’s and was lived in by the Blackwell family for several years until certain events took a turn for the worse. Documentation and records dating back to the 1890’s indicate that the owners along with their 4 young children were all found slaughtered by deer hunters who were passing by. The father, John Blackwell, was found hung in the living room while his wife, Elizabeth, was discovered in the same room stabbed to death with her arms and head cut off. Two of the four children, ranging in age from 5 to 16 years of age, were found mutilated and stuffed inside an upstairs bedroom closet as if they were attempting to hide from the intruders who killed them.

A third young female child was found lying in a partially dug up grave on a trail approximately 20 yards from the Blackwell’s home. According to reports it appeared through her ripped and torn clothing, including many self-defense wounds, the third child identified as Jessica, made an unsuccessful effort to escape the murderer. The youngest of the four children, Charles Blackwell, was never found either dead or alive at the horrific bloody crime scene and his whereabouts to this day remain unknown.

There is only one known undated and faded picture of the Blackwell family taken together in front of the house which was discovered in the Worcester County Archives of records in Snow Hill. Distant family residents of the Blackwell family still live and reside in this area today. There has been much rumor and speculation over the years about who or why would someone commit such a horrific and terrifying acts to an innocent family and four young children. As you walk this wooded area, an eerie feeling sometimes comes over you as if you are not alone or being watched by someone.

In August of 2010, the grass covered remains of this cursed house and foundation were accidently stumbled upon and discovered by four unknowing University of Maryland College students. At this time, the students were given advanced permission from the property owner to roam and camp the property as part of their summer weekend outing.

Equipped with a metal detector and small shovels there were findings inside the foundation as well as the faded outer perimeter. Glass wine jugs, remains of an oil lamp, a woman’s diamond and ruby ring, two knives and several rusted metal items, all of which likely belonged to the Blackwell family, were found buried just inches under the ground. The students, after later learning and now realizing the previous dark history of the location rightfully decided not to keep any part of their historical findings turning all the items over to the property’s owner. There is still evidence and findings of human remains today on this property. Cold case files remain open with law enforcement till this day and remains as confidential information not open for public information.

Field of Fears

Here you will need to be mindful of attacks from all sorts of creatures’ from the night There are also plenty of clowns and other Psycho’s who will be greeting and offering personal escort service. This is just a glimpse and brief overview of what AWAITS YOU. We cannot for obvious reasons be more specific and give all the scares and secrets away.

General Information

Our three haunted attractions, The Trail of Terror, Haunted Forest, and Field of Fear are very scary attractions that take place in a wooded and outside venue setting. Most haunted trails are close to a mile long and may include small buildings, tents or huts that include various scenes and themes you’ll be forced to enter or walk past. Some haunted paths are roped off to deny access to certain restricted areas and may or may not have lit paths. Unlike enclosed haunted houses, weather plays a major role to determine if the attraction will be open or closed. A typical haunted trail tour will last anywhere from 40-50 minutes. The tour time varies greatly depending on the number of people in a group, the customer’s pace and the overall size of the attraction. The Trail of Terror, Blackwell House and the Field of Fear are comprised of over 20 acres, with over 30 acres for parking. Refreshments and souvenirs will be available during the event.

So what makes a haunted trail and forest so special? Traditionally, a haunted forest tends to be a more extreme and horrifying experience than a haunted house. Being out in a true dark wooded environment as opposed to a closed in space allows scares to come from all angles making this type of haunted attraction more dynamic and scarier than a standard haunted house. We are not saying that a haunted house is not scary, but a haunted forest has more edge and is generally thought to be a scarier and a more fun haunted attraction. If you like to be scared, this Trail of Terror is the one for you!

Try one or all three attractions for the same admission price of $15. I dare you to visit and experience one of the best haunts on the entire Eastern Shore.
