Flames Consume Purgatory House—At Last

The large vacant home known as Purgatory House—because it was off Purgatory Road—has all kinds of ghostly mythology associated with it. The rumor is that it was inhabited by evil spirits that caused the death of a teenager who lived there who was decapitated in a car accident. After her family moved out in the 1980s, the story goes, the house was never inhabited again. Or was it? Many people believed the house continued to be haunted. A video by the Unknown Cameraman from last year demonstrates that the house was likely only haunted by bored suburban teenagers with spray paint.
