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.

Beating A Dead Horse

I’m sure you’re sick of hearing about it by now, but the AP Houseblog story ran in the Russellville Courier last Sunday.

I had to include this picture. I just love the “story” that they ran next to it. It’s the antithesis of everything good and holy. If that is a friggin' chateau, I'm Louis XIV.

Anyhow, enough horse kicking; it’s time to leave this carcass in peace so it can bloat in the sun.

Ha - well, ain't that ironic. I agree - Chateau??? Who do they think they're kidding.

Though, it'd be fun to buy the house just so we could ask people to stop by and visit us at "The Chateau de Wagner"...

Ha! That 'chateau' looks like a growth, which just kept bubbling up and spreading.
