The Paper House

I heard about a house made of newspaper being somewhere in Massachusetts. Since it wasn’t too far from Salem, I figured we’d check it out. A paper house? Sounds silly.

It is.

What the walls look like. As you can see, some parts are beginning to tear, due to clumsy visitors.

When we arrived, there were signs saying the house was open but was operating on an honors system – admission was $1.50. I was happy to see nobody else was there. But I don’t suppose a house with paper walls and furniture attract all too many visitors, at least not large groups of them.

Again, the walls, ceiling, furniture, even the top of the fireplace – all made of newpaper.

It’s silly.

I would learn after returning from my trip that the Paper House has an official website.
