From what I have heard from people living around here, this house has looked like this for a few decades. The stories say that a while ago there used to be a horse drawn hearse in the front yard. The curtains are rumored to be made with coffin lining. Upon investigation, we didn't find a hearse or Satanists, but indeed there was one unique house. It was clearly set apart from its neighbors.

The section of sidewalk outside this house was painted red.

    I don't know if this was the exact place, but a few years ago, my uncle told me a story of when he was young in his early twenties and he went with my dad and my mom and some friends out to massapequa and he claimed to have went by a house where they saw something that appeared to look like hooded figures in the middle of some satanic ritual though the windows. A little odd, and knowing my uncle it could be false, but from the way he was telling it, it might be credible and true. Thought i'd share the story since it might be related. I'm sure the people there now are nice, but this encounter was probably in the late 70s early 80s
    My friend lives a few blocks from that house and she drove me past it one night and stopped the car. and i couldnt tell you the creepy feeling i got and the images i saw .. would love to get inside that house
    I have been going to this house with friends since the late seventies..the house looked nothing like this than. There was some sort of carriage ( I would't call it a hearse ) parked there in the late 70's. They constantly do construction to make it look even creepier..one time back in the 80's a police office chased us down Hicksville rd & asked us what we were doing at the "Witches house"...I met someone who lived around the corner and said the neighbors were afraid of them! Wish I had pic's to show you the evolution of this house through the years.....so spooky! The police actually close the street on Halloween so you can't drive down. Witches or not we had ots of fun driving past this place!
    My good friend lives a few houses away from this house & i have met the people who live there at his block party last year .. there very nice people ...A little odd but nice ..lol
