American Horror Story’s new season is about the mysterious and lost Roanoke Colony. For all those still questioning what the new season is called this morning and this afternoon and maybe even tonight– it’s called “My Roanoke Nightmare”. It’s not like the fact that Roanoke is a secret– when it’s constantly flashed at the bottom of the screen.

Actually it should be renamed American Horror Story: The Adventures of Marcia and OJ— with Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. teamed up once again. That looked like Chaz Bono as one of the hellbillys last night-“ZZ Top wannabes”. Yep, it  really was Chaz Bono–so we may well get The Hills Have Eyes yet.

I still hold out hope for Lady Gaga in a Pilgrim outfit. Sarah Paulson, you, as always, have my undivided attention. Move over Sharknado! Season 6 begins!

Burgess House — This Must Have Been the Auction of the Year in Carleton Place

The wall murals in Season 1 of the popular F/X show American Horror Story are a series of odd paintings found in the living room by the new owners of a California home.

While restoring the house,  former owners Chad Warwick and Patrick covered up the murals with wallpaper.  Vivien Harmon, strips all the wallpaper when she begins to renovate, only to reveal the odd masterpieces. So have any murals been found under wallpaper here in Carleton Place? According to Heritage Carleton Place it seems there have been.

Burgess House

Address: 249 Lake Ave East, Carleton Place, Ontario

The Burgess house was built in 1900 for Arthur Burgess who was a wealthy local businessman, and  served as Mayor of Carleton Place in 1903 and in 1922.  This grand brick home with it’s circular driveway, massive front porch, and original carriage house is a fine example of Victorian architecture of the time. The home features fine oak trim  throughout, and a grand entrance hall with a number of stained glass windows.
In 1987, when the house was being renovated, it was discovered behind layers of wallpaper there were actual murals painted on the walls. On one wall they discovered a painting of a steam engine travelling through the Fraser Valley in BC with a snowy winter scene with a log cabin.  When all the wallpaper was completing removed, the homeowners at the time found several other scenes painted on the walls by an artist.  It is believed the artist of the wall murals was a Mr. Grant who was a brother in-law of Arthur Burgess.
How cool is that?
