Home That Inspired ‘The Conjuring’ Sells For Over $1.5 Million

BURRILLVILLE, RI (AP) – The Rhode Island ranch that inspired the 2013 horror movie “The Conjuring” has been sold to a Boston developer who plans to keep it open to the public.

The 18th-century home in Burrillville sold for $1,525 million on Thursday, well above its $1.2 million asking price.

“This purchase is personal to me,” buyer Jacqueline Nuñez, owner of WonderGroup LLC, told The Boston Globe. “It is not real estate development. It’s about my own beliefs.”

Nuñez and the couple who sold the house, Cory and Jennifer Heinzen, jointly announced the sale on Facebook.

Nuñez plans to continue the paranormal business the Heinzens started. Guests will be able to continue with the nighttime paranormal investigations, day trips will resume, and there will be live streaming events. The Heinzens, who bought the house in 2019, remain involved.

The film was not filmed at home, but was based on the experiences of a family living there in the 1970s.

Nuñez said she is not afraid of the house.

“I don’t believe the energy here is evil. Things will happen here that will frighten me, but will not harm me,” she said. “I look forward to experiencing things.”
