You Can Now Live Inside This Bronx Mansion Built for Jesus by a Christian Cult

You can now live in this 1920s Riverdale castle literally built by a Christian cult for Jesus to live in once resurrected.

It was built in 1928 by Genevieve Ludlow Griscom, the wife of Clement Griscom, a wealthy executive who made ship heaters when it was still the preferred way to travel.

She was a member of a small Christian cult called the Outer Court of the Order of the Living Christ, and they determined that when Jesus was resurrected, he would want to live in The Bronx.

So Griscom put up the cash to build this 15,000 square-foot mansion and left empty so that Jesus would not have to have any awkward eviction conversations.

Fast forward 88 years later, the cult is gone, Jesus has yet to arrive, and the house is listed for rent on Zillow for just $35,000 a month.
