Farewell to the Haunted House acnatta/FlickrDriving through Birmingham’s Lakeview district today you may notice construction equipment demolishing what was once an annual tradition for many locals come Halloween.

The structure that used to house the Birmingham Jaycees‘ Haunted House is in the process of being leveled. The home last hosted the organization’s annual fundraiser in 2004, though attempts were made to hold one there in 2006.

The city’s oldest young professional organization, responsible for things including the design of the city’s flag,  is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year (making it the 3rd oldest chapter in the United States). It’s looking forward to marking the occasion with events this fall.
