Providence: 140 Prospect Street

Thanks to Grim Reviews for this nugget ... 140 Prospect Street, which was the inspired setting for a good chunk of HP Lovecraft's tale "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward," has gone on sale. for $3 Million. Abbatoir states: The Halsey House, a Victorian mansion built in 1801 by Colonel Thomas Lloyd Halsey, which was reputed to be haunted in Lovecraft’s time. The data makes it seem so ordinary which just shows how fertile Lovecraft's imagination was in his day.
