The association of towered Second Empire houses as haunted or just spooky got its start in 1938, with Charles Addams’ ghoulish cartoons in The New Yorker magazine. Hollywood got in on the act in films such as Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” and the Haunted Mansions in Disney’s theme parks.
Fortunately for the G.L. Little House, it is a beautifully restored and well-maintained home that is not in the least creepy – at least not without a touch of Photoshop to up the drama. Many communities have similar Victorian-era houses that have been neglected or abandoned, just waiting for someone to see the beautiful house through the gloom.
“Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners” was written to help people restore creepy old houses into lovely historic homes.
