Hull House was a settlement house back in the early 1900s for immigrants. A woman gave birth to a child whose father was the devil. The mother, disgusted by the child, abandoned the baby at Hull House. The owner, Jane Addams, hid the baby in the attic and raised the child. The child died at a young age.

I got my phone out & said SAY CHEESE and when I got home & blew up the pic on my pc this is what I got."…
