Pennhurst Asylum receives final approval

Congratulations to property owner Richard Chakejian and partner Randy Bates with regard to final township approval for Pennhurst Asylum.

In a unanimous decision, the East Vincent Township zoning hearing board has decided that the haunted attraction is an allowed use under the zoning rules. Any appeal must be filed within 30 days' time.

Here's hoping the appeal does not happen and the 2011 season is not further complicated or threatened. Looking forward to another great season at Pennhurst!


  1. Good to hear. I understand some folks feeling this is exploitive, but why not turn this place into something positive and fun for folks? Let's face it, it's a PERFECT setting for a Haunt!
