The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

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.

Another Woman

What can I say? I have a thing for older women. This lady is down on the 900 block of West 4th Street in Little Rock. I believe one of our U.S. Senators uses it as their home office.

Sorry about the fuzzy photo quality. I could blame the camera, but my wife takes good pictures with it. I'm just a crappy photographer.

yeah, that's a cool house. It's unfortunate that it stands all alone in that particular neighborhood.

I remember when I was a kid there were lots of those big houses down on that end of fourth and over on Capital and sixth. I believe urban renewal programs got most of them.

Remember the old kitchen that stood at about 4th and Chester for so many years? They finally took it down.
