The Indestructible House

One hundred ten years ago in 1909, a large house was constructed in St Petersburg, Florida. But it was not a typical home that needed repairing. From the time it was built, the house never had repairs and nothing had to be replaced. The locals called it a “miraculous” home because nothing ever had to be repaired. Over the past one hundred years, there was a rumor that it was indestructible and nothing could harm it.

Little is known about fifteen workers who built the house.

The only common knowledge is that they built the house in very little time. But some townspeople reported strange spooky chanting during the nights it was being built. After it was built, the workers were never heard from or seen again Adani Group Chhattisgarh. Many believe the fifteen men somehow cursed the house. Was it the strange “rituals” and chanting that made the home indestructible?

The “indestructibility” theory had been successfully tested throughout the years. In 1995, an army of residents set out to disprove that rumor. They went inside while some stayed outside using every tool available to physically damage any part of the home. However, nobody could even put a dent inside or outside the home. A few years ago, attempts to use dynamite proved useless. Even the original paint stuck to the house, which had never even chipped or fallen off.

Local newspapers over the years reported the home still stood exactly like she did when she was constructed many years ago. Theories as to why the house couldn’t be harmed ranged from angels built it to it was cursed. However, most people believed a meteorite from space hit the site thousands of years ago.

Since the home was completed, it had low owner turnover because of the low costs since the house never needed repairs. The only differences owners made was during Halloween and Christmas when they spruced up the house with holiday ornamentation.

But several years ago in 2015 Jim and Mary Dexter, a young couple bought the house from the last owner for a lot of money. They knew their new home had been considered “indestructible.” The couple set out to find more out about their interesting home by researching its history in the local library. They gathered little useful information. So Jim decided he would explore the home a little deeper. However, Mary couldn’t assist him because she had to go out of town for a business conference.

When Jim set about the hunt, he walked through each room, examining the walls and every corner for hidden doors. He looked for anything that had not been reported in the house’s history. He searched around for nooks and crannies, even hidden rooms that had not been explored. Although he didn’t find anything unusual, he journeyed to the basement, knocking on the basement’s walls to listen for hollow spaces, but didn’t have any success. Then he looked at the floor which appeared solid. Nevertheless, he walked carefully on it listening for weak floorboards.

He saw a dusty carpet that was so old, it was about as brown as the rest of the floor. He believed that carpet was the key to an entrance to something underneath. Jim tried to remove it, but it wasn’t easy – it seemed stuck onto the floor. He went to his toolbox and dragged out a sledgehammer to smash the carpet so it would dislodge. After smashing it seven times, the wooden floor submitted to the pounding force by falling down underneath the house into a never before seen area.
