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.

The Wrong Kind of Attention?

When I first started this blog, a lot of our first visitors came to it thinking it was a S&M bondage site, and they were right. But it wasn't that kind of S&M site. Sorry folks. After they figured out the Devil Queen was a house, they went elsewhere. That isn't to say an interest in old homes and an interest in bondage are mutually exclusive, but old wood apparently wasn't their favorite fetish.

Visitors that are not family, friends, or housebloggers, usually find the Devil Queen through Google or Yahoo searches. Favorite keywords are "salvaged flooring," "paint stripper," or "insulation."

Monday, we got a new one: "my wife getting laid."

Why someone would be searching for that online . . . I don't want to know, but, apparently, it happens here.

Maybe they wanted pictures.

"Got any pictures of your wife naked? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Know what I mean?"

"I most certainly do not!"

"Wanna buy some?"
