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.

Six Inches

From last Friday to this Monday, we received roughly six inches of rain. Our creek, normally happy and gurgling rose around two feet and thundered like a stampede. Note how the water is rushing around the tree trunks. It normally doesn't.

The grey skies and pounding rain made for perfect sleeping weather. That is my way of saying I didn't work too much on the Devil Queen over the three day weekend.

Thank you. This creek is the best feature on our land. It is un-named to the best of my knowledge which seems a shame.
