Ford to turn train station into haunted house this Halloween

The vacant Michigan Central Station will soon be home to ghosts and ghouls this Halloween season. 

A Ford spokesperson confirmed the company is planning a spooky haunted house at the Corktown station. 

"We'll have more details in the coming weeks," said the spokesperson. 

Ford purchased the train station earlier this year, looking to transform the abandoned building into an innovation hub. 

“For 76 years the train station was our Ellis Island," said Bill Ford Jr. "The place where dreamers in search of new jobs and new opportunities first set foot in Detroit.”

They plan on making the ground level full of retail shops, bars and restaurants and then office space above it.

About 2,500 employees will be working at the Corktown location by 2020. Taking this empty building and making it new again, and a symbol for the city.

Ford added that the revitalization of the Michigan Central Station is “a signal to the world that Detroit is open for business for good."
