Neat old house. I couldn't help thinking looking at it..."My gosh, the upkeep that thing must take! (...and needs!)

Is that a realtors' lockbox on the front door in picture #11?

Yes, these were taken in 2007. The house was for sale at the time. I believe they were asking around 400k if I remember correctly.

New owners, new attitute...
I originally moved to HSV in the late 80's and remember stopping there with my parents after church one day shortly after we moved. The owners at the time were an older couple and very nice and even allowed us in the house for a brief tour. I was maybe 9 or10 at the time so I don't remember too much other that it being really really cool looking on the inside as well and my mom telling me it was rude to keep asking about ghosts.

I'm so glad other people have had this experience. I'm only 16 years old, but I saw the house from the street and was intrigued. I'm a photographer (even have done work for Huntsville Event mag), so of course I wanted to ask about possible photo ops. I didn't think anyone lived in the house, but I did notice a car in the driveway so I wrote a polite note asking how much they would charge for photos. As I was finishing, a convertible with two women in it (one of them looking like Dolly Parton, mind you) pulled up to the house. I approached them, politely introduced myself, and asked about charges for photos and the older woman went off on a fully-blown tirade as Dolly Parton sat and watched. All I did was take a few steps onto my lawn, but apparently that's illegal and she said she'd report me to the police. She yelled at me until I was literally sobbing... I had no idea what to do! I didn't mean any harm. Thankfully another woman had stopped to admire the place and she was incredibly comforting, but the lady chewed her out as well for having her tire partly in the grass across the street ("her property", apparently). I was terrified... this woman needs mental help.

Not this time maybe. But rest assured if you drive by enough, you'll get hosed or at least flash light blast in your eyes from an upstairs window.
