The Haunted Forest at GSU

This Halloween, the Center for Addiction Recovery at Georgia Southern University brought back the Haunted Forest for another year of spooky fun. The history of the Haunted Forest dates back to 1980, when Professor "Mouse" Blankenbaker launched the event for the first time.

The forest was a phenomenal success and continued to be an annual occurrence until Blankenbaker's retirement in 2003.
