The patterned beds feature Victorian-era flowers. The modest house, built in 1893, has typical Victorian features — a wrap-around porch, and rake board and eave brackets on the gable end.
Swedish immigrants Emil and Mary Sandstrom were the first owners. William Henry Stone, known locally as “Wild Bill from Huntsville,” bought the house in 1915. He died in a bike accident on Ogden’s 12th Street, in 1952. Noises in the house are attributed to Stone, and his wife Luna Adele, who died in 1920. He’s said to still work in the basement, while his wife paces the floors and slams doors. The current owner removed interior doors to cut down on the slamming.*
