    As the owner of the home I can clarify that Christine’s Room was “Maggie’s Room,” named after the first wife of Mr.. Richardson that died unexpectedly of an intestinal illness in her 30’s. For decades, it is said that she sometimes peers from the bedroom window to look after the children playing in the yard outside. We’ve never had an experience with Mrs. Richardson, we like to assume that if she exists, she’s content with the current caretakers of her beautiful home.

    • Hello Christina Stoever Young, my name is Cierra and I am the founder of a paranormal group out of Reno, NV L.P.R. and I am curious to ask would you ever consider allowing a team to investigate there to find evidence of the spirit Christine? We are a very respectful group who knows that the privacy of your home and your space is to be respected, as well as the spirit that occupies it.
      If you’d ever be interested in allowing us to investigate you can contact me at, or visit us on Facebook. Just search for “Luminosity Paranormal Researchers”. Thank you and hope to hear from you 🙂
