A House with a Past by E.J. Barnes

Boston is a city of history but not all history finds it way into text books or Duck Tours. In a state synonymous with witch burnings and 86 year old curses, writer and artist E.J. Barnes investigates the questionable ancestry of a Massachusetts home. Did the previous owners engage in highly questionable practices? Were they demonic or pharmaceutical in nature? With the housing market being such a beast, they should have just said no.
