The Conjuring House – Harrisville, RI

The Conjuring House – Harrisville, RI

The Old Arnold Estate, located in Harrisville, R.I., is an authentic colonial home, circa 1736, whose paranormal phenomena were made famous by The Conjuring movie in 2013 depicting the hauntings of the Perron Family that lived there in the 1970s. Its paranormal past runs deep, as far back as the 1700’s when the spirits of native tribes remained embedded in the land up through the present day with the many spirits who continue to inhabit and visit the property.

This mystical farmhouse offers visitors an opportunity to engage with authentic paranormal activity and is considered one of the most active paranormal locations in the world. Set on 8.5 acres surrounded by stone walls, open fields, a river, and a forest, visitors come from around the world to observe and connect with the energy here that Andrea Perron describes as “a portal cleverly disguised as a farmhouse.”  Since opening to the public in 2019, thousands of visitors have witnessed and engaged with the abundance of supernatural activity present here.

For anyone longing to connect with the other side of existence, this is the place to do it. The Conjuring House is a historical treasure, with pastoral beauty, providing those who are curious with an experience they will never forget. For some, an experience here can provide the key to understanding that our consciousness survives death and that we can connect with those who have passed before us.

The Conjuring House land precedes its colonial records by thousands of years while it was occupied by the Nipmuc and other local tribes prior to Roger Williams purchasing the land as part of the establishment of the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Having been expelled from the Massachusetts Bay Colony for espousing freedom of religious worship and separation of church and state, Roger Williams established Providence Plantations in 1636 in Narragansett RI. In 1639 Glocester, now Burrillville RI, became part of Providence Plantations including this estate deeded to the Richardson Family. The land was deeded in 1680 and was surveyed by John Smith, one of the original Virginia colonists.

Roger Williams believed that the best way to preserve the land was to deed large parcels to those who chose to follow him and his teachings. He did so to protect it from a rather overt encroachment from Connecticut and Massachusetts. The original estate deeded to the Richardsons was more than a thousand acres. It was subsequently sold off in parcels to families in the area, some who are still there hundreds of years later.

Because women had no rights to property at this time in history, their estate transferred through marriage from the first colonists, the Richardson family, to the Arnold family. From the Arnold Family it transferred to the Butterworths and then to the Kenyons before being purchased by the Perrons in the 1970s. In 1980, the Schwartz family purchased the property and sold it to Norma Sutcliffe in 1987. Cory and Jen Heinzen purchased the property in 2019 from Norma Sutcliffe and launched the business to allow investigations and day tours. In May of 2022, Jacqueline Nuñez purchased the property and is continuing and growing the business.

The house as it now stands was completed in 1736, forty years before the signing of The Declaration of Independence. This magnificent homestead has survived countless storms, King Philips War, The Revolutionary War, The Civil War, and the unbridled growth of the Industrial Age in America. The house is a testament to the need to preserve history. Eight generations of one extended family had lived and died in it and apparently some of them never left or visit it with some frequency. History has a story to tell. We will never know all of it, some of which has been lost to the annuls of time, but one thing is certain. There are few places like it which remain intact, and it deserves reverence for the National treasure that it is
