  1. Are there going to be anymore house tours in 2021, beyond?! I just moved around the corner, i know tons of people who didnt know of the first tours and would love to see it!


  2. That is the most sickening thing I have ever heard of making a house a touring place where victims were murdered for their SSI checks! Whoever thought of this insane idea is just as mentally sick as the owner Dorothy Pente was when she committed these murders. MONEY, MONEY, MONEY! is all you people want. How about letting the dead rest in peace and tear down that House of Horrors instead?


    • Since the house was built in 1890, it is viewed as a historical building. It can’t be demolished :(


    • It is my understanding that this house was built in the 1800 and therefore by law cannot be torn down. That being said and knowing the history of the home it’s impossible to be sold and I guess having tours would supplement the upkeep & maintenance of the property.


    • Who cares? You don’t own the house what makes your opinion more important. You don’t get to decide what is right and wrong


    • Who is Dorothy Pente? 😂😂😂 Take your meds and learn how to spell.


  3. I agree... it's so wrong to give tours in every way... your sick! Pull the house down and then leave the area to rest.


    • This house just needs to be demolished. It doesn't matter if it's a "historical building." So many horrific things happened here. It's so insensitive!!!


  4. The owners of the house aren’t disrespecting the dead. By the owner remembering those who have passed, they are actually letting their life be remembered and not forgotten.


  5. Just wondering if there will be any more home tours to the public ?
