The Devil Queen

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

My Photo
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.

Looted Dog-Trot JPEG's

This weekend I looted my mother-in-law's compter for old house photos. We used to collect pictures of old homes while we were in the appraisal business. Since I have an obsession with passive cooling, I like dog-trot houses. This one is near Guy, Arkansas (North Faulkner County, about 1 hour plus from Little Rock). Enjoy.

Beautiful! Thank you for posting them. It's hard to fathom why anyone would let such a treasure deteriorate.

These are just not valued. I have one on my farm and tried for years to give it away (they didn't have to move it). I though somebody might like it for a getaway.

But nobody wanted it. I still have it. Anyone?
