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 Apotheosis of Gary

I would like to give special thanks to Gary for the generous selection of old-wood, 1 inch plugs he sent us for the Devil Queen’s hideously abused pine floors.

As the Devil Queen’s High Priest, I have elevated Gary to join the divine ranks of my Dark Mistress’ illustrious helpers (you know who you are).

In all seriousness, thanks again Gary. We greatly appreciate it. Let us know if we can return the favor.

Okay, I know that Gary has sent shellac to someone and feet for a clawfoot tub and now this. My house just won't be complete until I get something from Gary! I must have a piece of the crackhouse mystique!

Speaking of which, how cool is it that you made those T-shirts!! I might just have to buy one of those :)
