There is no place like home…

Famous clown house in Auburn

The Historic 'Butthead House' on Tumor street in Auburn, Alabama.

I was asked by friends to paint the front of their house (one of the only 2 NON-Fraternal houses on the famous ‘Tumor Street Fraternity Row’ at Auburn University in Alabama. )My band Bone DaliΒ  lived in the other Independent house, but we played at this house for an outdoor concert the night after this was painted – – -to help christen the fresh new Face in the neighborhood, (and we drew quite a crowd.)

This house was featured on the cover of the Opelika times and the Auburn Plainsmen (school newspaper), in the ‘Welcome Back To School’ issues, making it ‘slightly famous’.

It was repainted 8 years after we graduated when repairs were needed to the aging house. It certainly added some character to the area while it lasted. πŸ™‚

    I think that a LOT of people still miss that house too, Mr. Rich! Epic adventures occurred there OFTEN! πŸ™‚

    I lived in that house during the summer of ’95. I threw a party every thursday during the summer and the crowds kept getting bigger. Towards the end of the summer, the police caught on and shut us down. It was the best summer of my college career.

    Jay, you were a part of a great legacy from 7 years earlier! Glad to hear that the tradition continued! πŸ™‚ I’m pleased to meet you Bro! πŸ˜€

    1989 to 1990 was the birth year of the BH House. One of the greatest things I have ever participated in, hands down.

    Awesome photo! We remember it well. Believe there was a little home brewing action a bit later. Both houses are still in the family and continue to proudly serve Auburn students,,,. golf team, swim team, band, etc. and even Aubie. War Eagle!!
