The sinister, but unsolved murders of Margaret and her husband left the town in turmoil and filled with questions. Their home may have been boarded up in 1916, but it never truly closed. The house took on a life of its own, filling with spirits seeking their revenge on the next to knock on it’s haunted door….beware!
