Granbury has plenty of paranormal history!  In the Livestock Barn at the Hood County Reunion Grounds, visitors can tour the home and stomping grounds of the man known as The Mad Butcher. The ghoulish acts of Gein – who robbed graves of their inhabitants in the dead of night and furnished his farmhouse with “buried treasures” – spawned such films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Silence of the Lambs, Deranged and Carrie. At the Gein farmhouse, guests come for a visit – but stay an eternity.

First Annual Granscary

“The Slaughter Begins…”

Granbury has plenty of paranormal history, but the town’s past can’t compare to that of Plainfield, Wisconsin. The crimes of Plainfield resident Ed Gein were so horrific, he inspired the characters behind some of the nation’s top horror films. In the Livestock Barn at the Hood County Reunion Grounds, visitors can tour the home and stomping grounds of the man known as The Mad Butcher. The ghoulish acts of Gein – who robbed graves of their inhabitants in the dead of night and furnished his farmhouse with “buried treasures” – spawned such films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Silence of the Lambs, Deranged and Carrie. At the Gein farmhouse, guests come for a visit – but stay an eternity.

Granbury Living Christmas Cards @ Granbury Square
Dec 12 @ 10:00 am – Dec 13 @ 9:00 pm

GRANBURY CARDS

Christmas is such a festive time of the year — filled with family, food and fun. It can also be a difficult time for many – as they become stressed by increased demands on their time, or are reminded of loved ones who have passed away. At the heart of The Granbury Living Christmas Cards™ is the true hope of the holiday season – which we believe is found in Jesus Christ. 

Live Actors, Dancers and Singers

These cards are huge (up to 24’ wide and 10’ tall)! Each card depicts a different thematic scene from Christmas – such as A Cowboy Christmas, A Granbury Winter Wonderland or The Nativitiy. They will each come to life with actors, dancers and singers who seem to have stepped right out of the card as they interact with the audience.

There is no cost for the event, it is Lakeside Baptist Church’s gift to you. Bring your family and enjoy the experience at no charge!
