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.

In Passing

The last few days we've had the kind of weather that really makes me appreciate why every room in the Devil Queen originally had a wood burning stove or fireplace. Actually got iced in for a while today, so I'm running a little behind on house work and posts on house work.

Lee, I asked my dad about the carving around the dining room window. He wasn't familiar with them, but, if you can tell us what it says, we might be able to help.

Yeah...We're in Fayetteville, the house in Fort Smith...All this silly ice has been keeping us from getting there and making the heat pump work overtime while we're gone! I'm not looking forward to that electric bill.

Stupid weather...
