It is said that no family has been able to live in this exquisite home for more than a month or so. There are reports of a man walking through the house dressed in his Sunday best all night. It is said that if one drives by the house at night, either every light will be on or no lights may be on at all. There is one particular report of a family that awoke one night to find the lamp on the night stand on. They turned it off. An hour later, they woke up again to find this lamp on. This time, they unplugged it. A little while later, they saw the bulb glowing again, but the lamp was still unplugged. Suddenly, the bulb exploded into flames. The next day, they hear that Mr. Blackwell never let his children sleep in the dark.
