What to Expect

The Farrar Schoolhouse is a "known"
haunted location here in Iowa visited
by dozens of Paranormal Groups and
other individuals including
Discover Channel's "My Ghost Story"
and "Ghost Stalkers", Fox news,
Lazor 103.3 Radio, Des Moines Register,
author Steven Lachance, Villisca's
Johnny Houser, John Tenney and more.

Many alumni and past students
have also visited the schoolhouse.
 Some have left us with great stories
of their childhood.
Some have left stories of creepy events
from doors closing on their own to
disembodied voices heard during class.
Make sure to check out our evidence
pages then consider a visit.
The building would love to meet you!

What to bring: Dress in comfortable clothes. Although there are many places to sit in the schoolhouse you no doubt will be spending time sitting on the floor. A seat cushion or blanket might be a good idea if you believe you need it. Bring whatever will make you most comfortable and is appropriate for the nights weather.

Although the gym and 1st floor levels are fairly comfortable keep in mind that the 2nd and 3rd floors can get warm or cold. We always provide one small room for our guests that is air-conditioned or heated as needed. There are only chairs in the room so you should bring an air mattress or blanket to sleep on if you wish. The small room (the old school office)
also has a small refrigerator and microwave for your convenience.

Please bring only flashlights, cameras or other "investigation" related items. If you are attending a "Hosted" event your hosts may share equipment with you. Other then the items mentioned above, rule of thumb is if it fits in your pockets
or carried on your person (Exa: backpacks) it's ok. Ice Chests are allowed but may
 be restricted during large "Hosted" Events. 

We cannot be responsible
for lost or stolen items.


Haunting at Farrar discourages anyone
with health issues or physical
restrictions from attending.
Everyone attending must sign a waiver.

Please note: The owners do live in

except 3rd floor.

on property. No services.
Smoking permitted outside only.
  When you book an overnight you may
come and go as you please.
Main doors are unlocked during your
stay unless you want otherwise.
Children under 18 will have to be
accompanied by an adult.

Must be at least 14 years old to
