The Story Behind Rhode Island’s Most Haunted House Will Give You Nightmares

Most of us have heard of the 2013 horror movie hit known as The Conjuring. Not everyone knows that the haunted house featured in the film is based on a legendary haunted country home right here in Rhode Island. Here’s the backstory!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

The Harrisville haunting was so terrifying the entire Perron family decided to flee the home shortly after the investigation. Many Rhode Islanders wonder if the house is still haunted. The answer is, we may never know. This home remains a private residence and does not accept visitors, but we encourage you to see the Conjuring soon if you’re having the urge to feel utterly terrified.
