He had bought the corner lot at Lane and Jackson and had built a beautiful house for him and his bride. Together they were raising three wonderful children, 2 strong boys and a lovely daughter.
Then one dark and stormy night ....
Those poor children and their Mother did not stand a chance.... so much blood. It was enough to bring strong men to their knees when they entered the House.
Nobody figured out the why, Cyril was tried and found mentally insane and sentenced to spend the rest of his life in Fairview Manor, under the warm,loving care of Dr. Enhu Mann. Located across the South Umpqua River , where today stands the Douglas County Fairgrounds..............but did he??
Several years later The National B.P.O.E bought the land and the Roseburg Elks Lodge rose from the ground over the very same spot where Cyrils house once stood.
For several decades nothing happen, but then around 2010 The Elks Lodge decided to hold a fundraiser.... A Haunted House as it were. BIG MISTAKE!!!!
Something has been reborn in the ballroom , the faint child laughter....the screams......the moans........the Strange happenings, has Cyril returned?
Every year it culminates during late October when the Haunted House takes place.
If you and yours are brave enough , come see what takes place at
Cyrils House of Horrors.
