Shocktober™, a terrifying, PG-13 haunted experience, takes place in the 32-room, 20,000-square-foot, 4-level Carlheim Manor and “Well of Souls” basement, located in the historic district of Leesburg, Loudoun County, Va, the heart of DC’s Wine Country. Carlheim Manor, Northern Virginia’s only REAL Haunted House, was built in 1872 over limestone caverns and an underground lake which has a history of legends filled with paranormal activity. Shocktober™ is NOT for the faint of heart! Are you brave enough to face the horrors around every corner of Shocktober™?
EVERY SCARE COUNTS AT SHOCKTOBER!
Shocktober is an award-winning fundraiser for the nonprofit, The Arc of Loudoun.
The Arc of Loudoun’s vision is to provide a lifetime of opportunities for people with disabilities. Our mission is to advocate for, educate, serve and support people with disabilities and their families.
In 1967, parents of children with disabilities founded The Arc of Loudoun because they had a vision to help their family members live “a life like yours.” In December 2009, The Arc leased the Paxton Campus and, on this property, created a seven-acre “safe-haven” for all people with disabilities and their families.
Today, The Arc of Loudoun, a local chapter of The Arc National, is home to five integrated programs that serve the most vulnerable and underserved in Loudoun and the Greater DC Region—children and adults with disabilities, their families and caretakers, and the professionals who work to help them achieve their greatest potential.
