Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Old House Archaeology, Digging for Wallpaper
. My sister contributed some time at the Queen to some historical research. She very attentive to detail with infinite patience for meticulous projects. She helped uncover some more of the Queen's original wallpaper. Instead of removing the old layers of wallpaper before hanging a new one, they just papered over the top of them. In some places, the wallpaper is four layers and 100+ years deep.
