Even when Louisville, Kentucky, was full of impressive houses, the Ouerbacker Mansion stood out from the others. The Romanesque mansion was home to coffee mogul Samuel Ouerbacker and caught the eyes of all who passed by with its beauty. Nearly a hundred years later, the mansion still attracts looks from people, but instead of instilling awe in passers-by it's making people scream "Ah!"
That's not to say the mansion is no longer beautiful. It still is, but in the scariest way possible.
It seems impossible for this mansion not to be haunted, which may be why it sold for an insane amount of money...
The mansion was purchased $1.
Yep. That might be because it's so horrifying. Who would want to spend good money on ghosts?
Restoring a home in this kind of disrepair will cost thousands.
If not millions.
So even though it sold so cheaply, it's doubtful there will be any major repairs anytime soon.
Yeah, good luck with that.
The city of Louisville has already dumped thousands into the mansion just to keep it stabilized.
It certainly has potential though.
Just look at it.
If you don't care that your house looks super haunted.
Ouerbacker Mansion back in its heyday.
Most mansions cost a few million dollars, not just one dollar. Not only did the new owners gain a historic mansion, they probably bought a few evil spirits, as well.
