Everyone remembers the contest several years ago (1997, I think) sponsored by Fox and Pepsi that involved a real house modeled after the one on The Simpsons. I didn’t realize until we moved here that it was just down the street from Vegas in neighboring Henderson.
Barbara Howard, a 63-year-old retired factory worker from Richmond, Ky., won the four-bedroom, 2,200-square-foot house in 1997 after sending in an entry form from a box of Brisk ice tea.
The house is located 712 Red Bark Lane and has since been repainted. While I don’t blame anyone for it (I couldn’t live in it), it’s kind of sad that the whole point of its existence is gone!
