Amityville House history?

Post by reece86 » Sat Feb 25, 2017 5:47 am

Hi, just wondering if anyone has any pictures of the house or history, before the DeFeo's move in? I wonder who lived in the house before the Defeo's and if they had any activity in the house. :D

You can get historical info on this board through board index/board info/case related info/Amityville FAQ. Lots of stuff going back to John Moynahan in the 1920's building of the house. Some of this was also in the History Channel docs along with Kathy's claim that some tragedy occurred to every family that lived in the house.

There is a famous person who lived in the house immediately prior to the Defeos. The actress Christine Belford was part of the Riley family.

I think the original question was whether there were any photographs taken of the house prior to the DeFeo's moving in.

I do not know of any which have publicly been shown on the internet or any other forum, but I would speculate there could be some in collections of past owners or their surviving family members.

They did put a photo of the house in the section where they write about Moynahan. But aren't the beige siding, trees and fake windows indicative of the Cromarty period? I know the change of colour was theirs.

Indeed, that's why I used the word "alleged".
