Houses Keep Foreclosure Stigma
Some houses, even after foreclosure, keep a particular stigma.
Known at the “witch house”, 657 Salem End Road was built in 1692 after Sarah Clayes ran away from Salem, Massachusetts after being accused of witchcraft. A trust was set up to preserve the house, but at a foreclosure auction, Goldman Sachs “exercised its right to take ownership of the dilapidated treasure.”
Stigma or stigmata…weird stuff or not, the place will probably be sold!
Even lofty publications such as the Paris Review wonder about haunted (and foreclosed) houses.
Curious, isn’t it?

Or, could it be that the house is haunted??? Let’s take a closer look at the above screenshot from Google Street View.
