This is one of my favorite photographs from the summer; I don't know anything about the house (other than that it's in Wylliesburg, Virginia -- which is where I took the picture of the Paul Carrington roadside marker). Anyway, I wanted to post it because I really like this -- but I don't have much to say about it, other than perhaps this: is it haunted? If not, it sure ought to be. It surely must go back to the antebellum era, which I think is a key variable related to degree of haunted-ness, and it isn't inhabited by anyone who's alive. The clincher, of course, it that it's in the rural south, too. I'm going to show this to my students when I teach Stambovsky this fall -- because I think the mere appearance of this house would put a reasonable buyer on notice that it might be haunted!
What a gorgeous house it once was -- and perahps might be yet again.
