Have you ever wondered when buying a home do you pick the house or is it possible the house picks you? For transplanted Californians Bruce Baldwin and his wife, Marion, the question doesn't have an easy answer. Their house and restaurant at the intersection of Crawford and Adams Streets is a turn-of-the-century Victorian - practically new by Vicksburg standards. From the moment they stepped inside the dwelling, they knew it was a unique home.

"When we first came out here just to view it, my wife felt something like brush up against her head."


"I thought it was a pigeon or a bird or something," recalls Marion. "It pushed my hair and scared me. There were no birds in the house."
