The Haunted Graveyard got its start in 1991, when Ernie and Carol Romegialli’s daughter, Johanna, was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes.

According to Ernie, “We started decorating our yard in Middletown, Connecticut for Halloween, thinking it would keep Johanna’s mind off candy. Every year, the displays of decoration just kept getting bigger and bigger. It outgrew our yard and has since evolved into Southern New England’s largest Halloween attraction. Today, Johanna, at age 28, is an active member of the Graveyard team.”

To date, The Haunted Graveyard has donated more than $1,000,000 to various diabetes organizations.
