From Creepy to Cool: The Weather Channel profiles This Abandoned House

Posted on 10/29/2014 by Maggie Marystone

The Weather Channel published a little profile of our house last week.

"Maggie Marystone didn't set out to buy an abandoned house, but the city of Chicago had a deal that was too sweet to pass up. A citywide initiative to rehabilitate abandoned property in the Windy City gave her the opportunity of a lifetime."

My favorite part of the article is the comments at the very end of the page where a couple people discuss how awful the house is. Can't please everyone!
