The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
The 1875 George Lord Little House in Kennebunk, Maine is an ideal spooky house for Halloween week. 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 back into lovely historic homes – that can be made temporarily creepy again for Halloween with some fake cobwebs and a plastic skeleton if you want.
