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.

A Small Miracle

Entergy finally hooked our power up. It caught us completely by surprise. I figured that with Katrina all of their linemen would be down in Louisiana and Mississippi. I was wrong.

We didn't do much of anything on the Devil Queen last weekend. My wife and I spent most of it cleaning our Blue House out. It was the first serious, all-out cleaning it's gotten since my son was born nearly two years ago. Four days and twenty trash bags later, the house looks much better. We also dug out a truck load of building materials for the Devil Queen and a truck load of stuff for Goodwill.

I know we are packrats, but I have no idea how we ended up with all this crap. It's amazing.
