It seems that every town, no matter how large or how small has its own scandals and Cope is no exception. This two-story house was built by a Mr. Foran, the man once founded and owned the bank in Cope. There's nothing scandalous in that fact but it seems Mr. Foran lived in the house with two single women who were not related to him. It was rumored that there was a secret tunnel running from the bank to the house. However, no sign of this tunnel has ever been found - From a newspaper clipping, source, date not noted.
