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.

Sell Your Soul

With the downturn in the housing market, inflation, bank failures, rising gas prices, and the imminent disintegration of the economy, I thought you cash strapped housebloggers might be interested in this untapped source of financing for your next home improvement project, selling your soul. Sure we all joke about selling our souls to our vintage homes (well I don't, the Devil Queen already consumed mine), but now you actually can. They even have a online calculator for estimating the dollar value of your soul though it seems to be out of order at the moment. If their testimonials can be believed, you could probably fund some major home renovations by selling your soul.

What is even funnier is this press release issued by the City of Siloam Springs, Arkansas, warning the public about this which was posted online by the Iconoclast blog.

Check it out, it'll definitely give you something to think about.
