A ghoulish prisoner awaits visitors at the Lost County Haunted House. Hosted by The Traveling Men and Pace Lodge No. 558, the annual screamfest operates every Friday and Saturday night from dark until 11 p.m. during the month of October, as well as Oct. 30 and Nov. 1. The haunted house serves as a fundraiser for the organizations' charitable efforts and charges $10 for admission. If you dare to venture there, you'll find it one mile south of Ga. Highway 36 on Ga. Highway 212 at the Newton and Jasper County line. For more information, visit or call 770-597-9315.
