This house would go on to be called one of the most haunted houses in America.
The first I heard of the Victorian era Congelier House on Ridge ave was on KDKA TV where a former KDKA personalty Beth E. Trapani wrote a book about hunted pittsburgh sites
It told of horrific story's of a mad scientists working out of the home and headless women's body's being found . How Thomas Edison had come to examine the house
How a gas worker was killed by an unknown force and how the house was destroyed and dissapered in a violent natural gas tank explosion .
the whole story thou appears to be nothing more than a string of lies thou.
Because I still remember the house standing when I was a kid and the explosion was in 1927 it was not of significant style and looked more like one of the many common row houses for the time period
So who ever or where ever this story came from appears to be the real mystery.
