I drove by this peculiar house with the large paper mache children in the store front window hundreds of times in my life, but today, I stopped the car and knocked on the door. Nobody answered.

It looks as if at one time the house -- located at 3702 N. Richards St. --  was a business, perhaps a tavern, but it appears as if currently it's occupied by a private residence. With a little digging, I learned it was built in 1922 and was most recently purchased in April of 2005.

Someone obviously arranged the front window into this creepy but artistic scene, and these paper mache figures -- that actually might be puppets -- have been in the window for at least a few years.

The house and yard are well maintained, but I never see anyone coming or going. I am totally intrigued by this property. Anyone got info?
