Don’t Enter That House. It’s Haunted!

Here is an apropos photo for All Hallows’ Eve. It’s a shot of a boy walking up the steps to the Octagon House, a house I wouldn’t recommend entering this evening, since it is frequently listed as the most haunted place in the entire city. Nevertheless, the photo is great.

    The article about the Octagon House was interesting, as I finished A Slave in the White House.
    However, I could not believe the errors in grammar, spelling, etc in the Wikki article I clicked on. I have emailed Wikki to tell them. I assume you have no control with what the do.
