Hearse-henge and the Haunted Chickenhouse

One of my favorite websites is RoadsideAmerica.com. It, along with Atlas Obscura, is my go-to when I am planning any kind of roadtrip. I have to check those sites to see what, if anything, in the area in which I will be travelling would be, as the site says, worthy of a detour for me. Recently, as I was passing through central Alabama, I made just such a detour to see Hearse-henge. What is that? It is exactly what you thing. It is sorta like Stonehenge, only built out of old hearses.

Hearse-henge is actually an advertisement for a yearly haunted attraction, the Haunted Chicken House in Heflin, Alabama. If they are able to open up this year (what with the ‘Rona and all) I may just have to drive back down to check it out come Halloween time. It looks and sounds like a total hoot. (This is not actually a pun, as owls hoot, not chickens, but is close enough, I hope.) They do a haunted hayride, too. And a haunted walking trail.

Anyway, the hearses. Some of them are not really hearses; they are old ambulances. What is the difference? The paintjobs. And the way they are outfitted on the inside. Otherwise they are the same make.
