DFW Haunted Houses 2011: The Parker House

DFW Haunted Houses 2011

The king is dead.

I would wager that there isn’t a person alive who hasn’t seen something they love fall into decline. Whether temporarily, permanently or even fatally, it’s one of those times that leaves us with a well of sadness in our stomach and our mind’s eye cast back to better times.
