Ardenwald graveyard attains a decade of spookiness

by: David F. Ashton The Davis’ new addition this year, the “ruined Abby”, draws gasps of amazement.

For ten years now, ghost-masters Jeff and Chris Davis' salute to Hallowe'en has grown and improved.

'It took several years to bring the dead and dying to life,' reflected Jeff.

In addition to the local residents, their now-famous 'graveyard' was attracting visitors from Tigard, Beaverton, and Canby the night THE BEE stopped by. The tombstone slogans elicited chuckles - but the atmospheric two-story decayed Abby got gasps.

You'll find the ghosts playing from dusk till 10 pm, with full effects running on the weekends.

The Davis Graveyard is situated at 8703 S.E. 43rd Avenue, at the intersection of S.E. Johnson Creek Boulevard. For more information, go online to: www.davisgraveyard.com.
