The Greenwood Place was actually the residence of Mr. Howard and his fellow "Beings from Beyond," and they had no intention of living with Lang. When Lang tried to spend a night in the house the Beings frightened him out of his wits. The next day Howard happily sold  Lang a different piece of property.
