The (Definitely, Maybe Haunted) House That Inspired ‘The Conjuring’ Just Hit the Market for $1.2 Million
Looking for a home and not scared? The ‘cursed’ house that inspired the heart-pounding The Conjuring movies is up for sale. For $1.2 million you can become the owner of the house, including ghosts.
INSPIRATION FOR THE CONJURING
The cottage is located in the American Burrillville, Rhode Island and is surrounded by a large piece of forest. Built-in 1763, it’s now owned by paranormal investigators Jenn and Corey Heinzen, but they’ve had enough of the place after two years.
Its longtime residents, the Perron family, were the inspiration for the first The Conjuring movie, which came out in 2013. The daughter of the family saw all kinds of ghosts, after which her mother researched the history of the house. She then discovered that it was quite dark. Mysterious deaths and other tragedies are said to have taken place.
The house is said to have been cursed by Bathsheba Sherman, a suspected witch who owned the house in the 1800s and even sacrificed her children. The real Ed and Lorraine Warren, the paranormal investigators who appear in the horror movies, later claimed that the events in the house are indeed the work of Bathsheba.
The Heinzens, who are now selling the house, have also experienced some creepy things themselves. They have since turned the haunted house into a successful business because the place is rented out to paranormal investigators or horror fans, who can spend the night in the house. Out of respect for the possibly present ghosts, the couple did present them with the renovation plans.
Curious about the looks and atmosphere of the house? Daughter Madison regularly shares videos on TikTok, in which familiar places and attributes from the films are also featured.
