Idaho Haunted House to be Featured on Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures

Subscribe to 107.9 LITE FM on

Almost a three hour drive from Boise, this haunted attraction is one of the Gem State’s favorite places to travel each October…mainly because, many believe that the campus is haunted whether or not the cast/crew are there!

Which haunt am I talking about? The Haunted Mansions of Albion at 437 E North St in Albion. The haunted attraction pops up every October at what used to be the Albion Normal School.  According to Southern Idaho Tourism, the school operated under the state from 1893-1951.  It remained empty until 1957 when Magic Valley Christian College leased the campus.  The school was only there for twelve years.  While the official reason behind the school closing its doors was a lack of financial support, others suspected there may be something supernatural playing a factor.

According to Southern Idaho Living, the campus remained sealed and closed to the public until the Mortensen family from Boise bought it. They’ve taken pride in cleaning it up and showing the public the historic buildings but have chosen to leave Comish Hall, the women’s dormitory, untouched. Comish Hall attracts paranormal investigators from all over the world because some areas are of it so “supernaturally charged.”  Some believe that its because the school’s former cook haunts the basement. There’s also been reports of eerie voices and ghostly animals in the building.  It’s included as one of the available haunted attractions each October along with the Clown House, Creature House, School of Chaos and Old Steam Plant.

Not surprisingly, Comish Hall is the building that attracted the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures to the Gem State! According to the “Haunted Mansions of Albion” website, the show’s star, Zak Bagans and his team stopped through the property this summer to see what type of paranormal activity they could find (the website makes it seem like they found a ton!)  It’s not yet clear which day the episode will air, but we do know that Ghost Adventures airs on Travel Channel on Saturdays. You can see a couple of shots from their visit on the Haunted Mansions’ website.

If you’d like to explore Comish Hall (which is creepy on its own, there’s no actors in that building) or any of the other historic buildings, you can check out the Haunted Mansions of Albion Fridays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. – 11 p.m. and select Thursdays.
