The saga surrounding the house is long and convoluted. Kristen went through her own personal hell while living in the home, a journey she documented in her book "1699 Belmont Street: A Portal to Hell." As she states in the advert for the book:
"Imagine living with a small child and having an inhuman specter haunt you. Imagine having years of paranormal experience that you cannot explain or have the courage to speak of. Imagine having your family torn apart by paranormal activity and spirits that want you to be isolated so they can do as they please to you inside a portal to Hell."
In the years since her experiences, Kristen has made great strides in recovering from those years and she has continued to move forward, offering the home to the paranormal community so that other teams could experience the wide range of phenomena and document evidence of the supernatural.
Out of the blue, Kristen was recently hit with a demand for payment of past due monies on the home. I won't go into all the details as to why these claims of monies due are suspect. Most of it Kristen has publicly posted herself on her social media pages. Needless to say, she is now in a battle to save the home both for herself, her business, and for the paranormal community at large.
Kristen has taken very active steps in raising money to save the home, including several events and an auction of haunted items. Now, she's calling out for further help with the launching of the gofundme campaign.
Please check out the page and contribute if at all possible. There are some great perks for those who can contribute, and even the smallest donation will help save this historic and fascinating haunted home.
