The purportedly haunted Rhode Island farmhouse, built in 1736, is on sale! For US$1.2 million, horror movie fans can investigate on their own the paranormal activities that inspired The Conjuring, 2013. 

In its listing, Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty called the house with its 14-room on 8.5 acres in Burrillville “one of the most well-known haunted houses in the United States.”

Indeed, everyone knows the Rhode Island farm from the movie Conjuring. This horror blockbuster depicts the struggles of the Perron family, the first family to invite paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren. With their help, they found out that the ghost of an 18th-century witch Bathsheba Sherman frequently visited the house.

Was the house, therefore, always haunted? Eight generations of one extended family lived and died in the farmhouse before the Perron family arrived. The town’s former public records book, The Black Book of Burrillville, reveals that the property had been host to an unprecedented number of tragical deaths: two suicides by hanging, one suicide by poison, the rape and murder of an eleven-year-old, two drownings, and the passing of four men who froze to death.

Paranormal Activity, or Money-making Activity?

The house last sold in 2019 for $439,000 to the Heinzen family, who described themselves as paranormal investigators.

We had doors opening, footsteps and knocks. I’ve had a hard time staying there by myself. I don’t have the feeling of anything evil, (but) it’s very busy. You can tell there’s a lot of things going on in the house.

Interestingly, before the Heinzen family, the former occupants did not complain about ghosts but rather about nosy tourists. They even sued Warner Bros. Pictures for popularising their house! 

On the other hand, the Heinzen family invited nosy visitors –– of course, for a fee! The haunted house became a haunted hotel providing spooky entertainment to its visitors. The rooms are furnished in a farmhouse-gothic style, enriched by occasional spirit boards if you fancied a chat with the dead. One night costs $125 per person. If you are searching for marketing ideas, learn: this creepy “hotel” is always fully booked. Right now, it is booked until the end of 2022.

The real estate, Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, uses the same marketing technique. The company promotes its new listing in a horror-like video starring button-eyed rag dolls, possessed women, and other paranormal objects (or ghosts). Yay, let’s buy a haunted house for $1.2 million that allegedly kills people! Or does it?

Haunted or not haunted, that is up to your imagination. If you wish to live your Halloween every day, this is the house for you! So, are you seriously considering buying this property? Check our article about an exclusive live stream from the Rhode Island Farmhouse.
