Indiana Horror Fans: You Can Camp Out at the Infamous ‘Conjuring House’
Are you a horror movie junkie like myself, and start your day with some coffee and a scary movie?

'Conjuring' up a whopping $319.5 million at the box office, it was a sure bet for horror movie watchers from the get-go.
And while ghost hunts and tours have been available at the real, Conjuring House for a while now, the owners are now offering visitors a camping experience on the property. Are you ready to pack your bags and head to one of the most famously haunted locations in the US?
The Story Behind the House
This land has been around for thousands of years, first inhabited by local Native American tribes of the area. The house that sits on the land was built in 1736 and was passed down to male heirs throughout multiple generations. The homeplace has bared witness to many nor'easters, and wars such as the King Williams War, the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War. The home itself holds testament to the need to preserve landmarks due to their historical importance. As you can imagine, over several hundred years, tragedy has befallen the farm, and in doing so has created a lasting legend of horrors'.
The Legacy of the Warrens
This residence was investigated off and on for what is said to have been nearly a decade. Ed, a demonologist, and his wife Lorraine made a name for themselves by investigating highly publicized cases of paranormal activities across the states and even Europe. The Warrens have conducted investigations at the Amityville Horror House and as seen in The Conjuring 2, they investigated the renounced Enfield case in Northern London, England.
They collected haunted and possessed items and stored them safely away at their home. These items now make up a particularly creepy museum of the occult that is operated by Warren's Son-in-law curator, Tony Spera. Here you can meet what might be the most evil doll in the world, Annabelle. A doll made famous with its spin-off series of films.
Ed passed away in August 2006 and Lorraine in 2019 and were married for over 60 years until Ed's passing.
With limited availability, this is a rare opportunity for all paranormal enthusiasts. There are different levels of terror found in multiple locations around the property. From an extraterrestrial portal location or the pet cemetery, you can choose your level of fright based on the campsite location on the property. Fright Factor ranges from 6-10 spread across eight different locations. Choose your base camp on how brave you are.
