Edgar Allen Poe House

Can anyone tell me what the hell is coming out of my walls here. There is this brownish red sticky substance oozing down the walls where an old chimney has been closed in. My first thought was blood from a body stuffed in the chimney for not paying a gambling debt, but that is probably just an active imagination. It probably has more to do with a domestic disagreement brought on by a drunken husband stumbling back from the carry out bar on Shelby one too many times and his wife trying to set him straight with the frying pan. Kate thought it might be from the flashing around the chimney but that seems a little far fetched to me.

Creosote, from the inside of the chimney. Not sure how to get rid of it. Maybe a chimney sweep can help with that. We have the same problem, but mostly in the summer.

I liked it better when it was blood from a body stuffed in the chimney.
