Round Top Road farmhouse in Burrillville is famous among ghost hunters, and fans of the paranormal and is said to have inspired the events of the cult horror movie, The Conjuring. The timber farmstead was once home to an accused witch, Bathsheba Sherman, who is said to have haunted the property. In 1971 its owners enlisted paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren to exorcise the home – though it’s rented out today to amateur ghost hunters and supernatural investigators. See more.
