And then, in honor of October, just one more quote from H.P. Lovecraft:
"Only the silent, sleepy, staring houses in the backwoods can tell all that has lain hidden since the early days; and they are not communicative, being loath to shake off the drowsiness which helps them forget. Sometimes one feels that it would be merciful to tear down these houses, for they must often dream."
-from H.P. Lovecraft, "The Picture in the House"
