Real World Horror: The Conjure Chest

Today in real-world horror we’re looking at another haunted object, The Conjure Chest.

In the 19th century Hosea, a slave, was murdered by his master for not building a chest of drawers to the master’s requirements/specifications. Horsea was a skilled craftsman and the master a ruthless perfectionist who beat his slave to death.

The fellow slaves, wanting revenge, asked a conjurer to put a curse on the chest.  After this was done seventeen people close to the master died, including his two sons, a daughter and several of his decedents.

The curse has since been lifted/restrained and is now in a museum in Kentucky.

Although, it is not on display.
