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.

Here is something my wife sent me. Really, it says it all. I wish I had as much sense as my 2 year old son.

Here's something for your blog:

I was carrying Giddy to the car, and we had just made it about 20 feet from the house when he looked over my shoulder and said "house."

"Yes, it is a house," I told him. "This is our home."

Giddy looked at the house. The Devil Queen looming before us like a green, scaly monster. Peeling paint and shiny blank windows.

"Uh oh," he said.

"That's right," I laughed. "Uh oh."
