Front Yard Fright, was started by Zach Wiechmann his sophomore year of high school at Waverly-Shell Rock Senior High. Zach started this venture as a way to stay out of trouble and to focus his free time on something constructive. After the first few years, the attraction began to grow attracting more and more patrons as well as more teenage kids looking for a place to belong.
After six successful years of operation, Zach decided the close the doors of Front Yard Fright after the 2010 Halloween season. A majority of the attraction was sold off to live on in other local haunted attractions. However, Front Yard Fright will undoubtedly rise from the grave yet again sooner or later.
