Hi there. Though I was a child, I clearly remember that spot. Went several times in what had to be the mid seventies. By then it was on its way to being closed.The name was The House of Horrors.

Also, back porches could be enclosed, which is what my Aunt and Uncle did in their 1920's 2 bedroomer - 3 kids, to make a 3rd bedroom. They also finished off the attic for the in-laws to live in. One full bath only for 5 people! Half bath in the basement, which was finished in wood paneling. Half bath in the finished attic for the in-laws.

I just have one question. Why or why when I lived in Chicago did I never find any super cool and historic house estate sales???? I was practically in a tithy looking at the pictures. Thanks to all that posted!! Berwyn Frank, do you have a "secret in" for the estate sales? Or do you just check out estate sale finders online?

To clarify. I'm speaking of what used to be known as the Historical Society on north Clark near Lasalle. The giant chain was behind the building. From a ship or what?

I've always been fascinated by that house!! It's owned by the city which is one of the reasons it sits.

I was always fascinated by this as a child. Are they still there? Where in the world did they come from and what is the significance?? Thanks.
