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.

I just heard from the title company. The felllow in Nebraska has given us the green light. If the release makes it to them in time, we could close late tomorrow.

WAY TO GO, my southern friend! The Devil Queen, she works her weak and ineffectual voodoo against you, but she is no match for the good will of ME, Janine.

Yeaa!!! We're so happy for you. Although, it seems so odd that someone else would be living in the Queen.
