Why don't you come to Villisca?

WolfCounselor did just that yesterday to discuss the recently completed Ax Murder House virtual tour with the owners, Darwin and Martha Linn.  The Linn's maintain two websites regarding the Murder House.  You can view them here and here.

The Linn's intend on using the virtual tour in both websites.  Additionally, they are producing a film documenting paranormal activity recorded by visitors to the Murder House.  Some of the panoramas from the virtual tour may also be used in the documentary they are producing.  The documentary will be available on DVD, as well as air on a cable network.  How cool is that?

Popularity Contest

WolfCounselor's most popular panoramic image recently reached 50,000 views on Google Earth.  While that doesn't exactly qualify as an Internet phenomenon, who would have guessed WC's nephew and brother-in-law could have that many friends?

Fright Night

WolfCounselor invites you on a ghost hunt! Grab your gear and be prepared for things that go bump in the night, as we visit the Villisca Ax Murder House, rated the #1 most terrifying place in America by the Travel Channel.

On a quiet residential street in this small Iowa town sits an old wood-frame house. On a dark evening, the absence of lights and sounds are the first indication that this house is different from the others.  The Murder House is a time capsule of the early 20th century, beautifully restored to circa 1912, when a deranged killer murdered eight innocent people.

Come for a tour and learn the story behind this awful crime, which remains unsolved to this day.  If you're truly adventurous, book an overnight stay at the Murder House, where paranormal activity abounds.  Wasn't that closet door closed a minute ago?
