This sweet c.1918 bungalow is a great price! Where can you buy a house, fixer upper or not, in a low-crime neighborhood for $11,500? Well, maybe in a town known for a horrible 1912 mass murder?
Our featured home today is down the street and around the corner from the Villisca Ax Murder House. On a dark spring night in June of 1912, eight people, the entire family of Josiah Moore, including his wife, four children ages 5-11, and two of the oldest daughter’s overnight guests, were murdered in their Villisca, Iowa, house by an unknown assailant. Reminiscent of Lizzie Borden, in a gruesome attack, the assailant bludgeoned to death the whole household with an axe. See the full story here.
