The Jeremy and Andrea Goodrich home at 306 Montezuma St., along Highway 63 in Malcom, is decorated each year with ghosts, goblins, clowns, grave stones, spooky and scary characters, which is all lit up at night. Jeremy said he changes the decorations most years and that it is a popular stop for folks taking Halloween photos.
