    We visited and investigated several haunted locations while in Iowa and the General Dodge House is one of them. This is one of the most beautiful Victorians I have ever seen.

A great podcast

Thank you to Diane and Denise for keeping me sane at work for the past few months. I discovered this podcast back in September when I started a new job. I'm on my own a lot so I've been working through the back catalogue from the start to keep me company. It's just the right blend of history and ghost story and the hosts are very engaging. I'd love to hear an episode about sites in Ireland, maybe Loftus Hall would be fun?
