MRandall25 - No, they changed the appearance a long time ago. It's still recognizable as the same house, but without the "eye" windows, it definitely loses some of the cool factor. :)

columbia - I was there a few years ago. I took the "train" ride/tour and it was a lot of fun! Freezing cold in January though, lol. The Plantation was on a recent episode of Ghost Hunters too.

Crystal Lake is very similar. A few of the cabins were torn down, but the main cabin where Alice fights Mrs V is still there. The lake looks the same. The archery range is still there too. Also, the diner where Steve Christy downs some coffee is still around. I ate breakfast there in April. :)
