As Halloween draws nearer, the brave wander the rooms of the basement of Paxton Manor, where supernatural shocks and haunts lurk in the dark. There, an underground lake lures guests to stare down into the well of souls.
Shocktober and other haunted-house events are fundraisers for Paxton Campus, a nonprofit that provides direct services for people with disabilities and their families. Since its founding in 1922, Paxton Campus has served as a nurturing place for people in need. Rachel Paxton had the dream of turning her home into a welcoming environment for underprivileged families, and it has since sheltered people as a convalescent center, daycare, and orphanage. In the past 90 years, the center has grown into a sizable organization with an onsite preschool, one-on-one academic programs, and ALLY, an advocacy program for people with disabilities. To keep the community involved in its operations, Paxton Campus also runs regular events including yoga groups, seasonal dances, and life-skills workshops.
