James Wan’s ‘The Conjuring’ terrorized fans as it became one of the most popular horror films of all time, leading to quite a few sequels in the franchise. The 2013 horror film centered on the experiences of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren at a haunted farmhouse in Rhode Island in 1971.
Now it seems the farmhouse made infamous by the film is now on sale. According to a report by JoBlo, the real Harrisville home that inspired the events of The Conjuring is officially on sale for $1.2 million. Constructed in 1836, the 8.5-acre residence continues to generate claims repeated hauntings.
Realtors Mott and Chace shared a description of the estate and they were very honest and upfront about what to expect from the farmhouse.
“Every so often an opportunity presents itself to possess an extraordinary piece of cultural history. The true story of ‘The Conjuring’ started in this very house, in Harrisville, RI. The critically acclaimed original movie was based on accounts taken from inhabitants of this fourteen-room farmhouse.
Rumored to be haunted by the presence of Bathsheba Sherman, who in the 1800’s lived in the house, 1677 Round Top Road is one of the most well-known haunted houses in the United States. The chilling stories from this house have inspired dozens of books and movies. Many qualified paranormal researchers have been invited into the home – most famously Ed and Lorraine Warren, who founded the oldest ghost hunting team in New England, and in the 1970’s were hired to rid the home of its evil. The Warrens confirmed that the events depicted in The Conjuring movies (the third just recently released) actually transpired.
The current caretakers have reported countless happenings in the house, and have turned overnight guest bookings and group events on the property into a steady successful business.”
It remains to be seen if someone is even brave enough to actually live in the farmhouse as it still remains a house full of untold horrors.
