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.

Old Style Log Cabin in Boone County, Arkansas

I wish I could remember where this log cabin is exactly. The only information I have is, "Samsung Hollow, Boone County, Arkansas." And, I remember that there was an Emu farm nearby. There can't be too many of those around. For those of you not familiar with Arkansas, Boone County is way up in the Ozarks on the Arkansas-Missouri border.

Judging from the style in which this cabin was built, I'd guess that is was built between 1870-1900. If you ever see a cabin with "Lincoln Log" corners, it's a sure sign that it was probably built in the 1930's by the CCC or WPA.
