“We never knew what to expect when we got home from work,” Barbara said. “How many people were in the house, outside the house.”

The house was built in 1910, by the owner of a dry goods store. In January, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) showed interest in the home.

They wanted to turn the home into an empathy museum and allow visitors to wear the skins of animals that were abused.
