A modest farmhouse in Rhode Island is banking big on its terrifying history. The house that inspired the Conjuring movie franchise recently sold for $1.525 million.
Located in a remote part of Harrisville, a town about 40 miles northwest of Providence, Rhode Island, the Conjuring house was listed for sale back in October 2021 for $1.2 million.
But despite its bone-chilling history of hauntings, remote location, and outdated interiors, it attracted 10 offers, shooting the price up to $1,525,000 (27% over asking).
The house at 1677 Round Top Rd, in Burrillville, RI served as the inspiration for the movies, which were based on events that took place here during the 1970s.
Back in the 1970s, the creepy looking house was owned by Carolyn and Roger Perron, who lived there until 1981 with their five daughters.
The family experienced all kinds of weird, inexplicable things while living here, and they eventually moved out in the early 1980s.
While living in the house, Carolyn allegedly became possessed by a supernatural spirit, which prompted the involvement of Ed and Lorraine Warren, renowned paranormal investigators at the time.
The filmmakers of the first Conjuring movie actually consulted with Lorraine Warren during production, to ensure that they had all the details down to a tee.
The first movie premiered in 2013 and was widely acclaimed for its top-notch acting by Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson and Lili Taylor, and its eerie atmosphere.
The movie did not, however, get a good review from the house’s owners at the time, Norma Sutcliffe and Gerald Helfrich.
The couple sued the filmmakers because the movie prompted fans to constantly vandalize their property.
