This American Life: House on Loon Lake

I'm sure many of you have already heard this story, but I wanted to share in case anyone else hasn't. This is from NPR's program This American Life. They devoted the entire show to one story about a man who explored an abandoned house as a child and all the mysteries he spent years trying to unravel. An amazing, spooky story!

Bud and Hazel's Green House-Vandalia, IL

Bud and Hazel's Greenhouse was a staple in Vandalia for many years, it like a lot of things in this town was destroyed by fire.

I remember going there a few times when I was a little kid, and I also remember watching some movie about Vandalia back in the day and they had a pet alligator there...because that's a great pet.

But..anyway, here's whats left....

A little house type thing, not sure if they owners lived in it, or it was used as an office...
