It's not your typical art project, but some students from the art club at Central High were eager to put their talents to use in a unique setting.
The help was much needed. It took 8 months of planning, constructing, and decorating to get the massive warehouse ready for the public.
"It's amazing these kids take their time out when they could be doing a lot of other different things," said Damon Anderson.
Some of them them were already spooked by the place they helped decorate.
"This place is terrifying," said Kristen Eldridge, a Central student. "I was walking through this place when I first got here, and even with the lights on I was freaked out."
Student Jonah Rose said, "I know this will scare a whole bunch of people, and I'd love to see them just terrified."
Their work carries another reward- a portion of the proceeds from the Old Haunted Warehouse will go to charities- the Watershed Project and the Spirit of Children, which locally brings smiles to Arkansas Children's Hospital.
"We like to say we're making hospitals a little less scary for sick children," said spokesman Dave Mendelsohn. "That's our motto you could say."
If you're brave enough to check it out, the Old Haunted Warehouse is located right behind the Pulaski County Jail at 3400 Brown Street.
Admission is $10.

- October 12, 13, 14
