New owner invites guests to explore property surrounding Conjuring house with ‘GHO ROAM’


BURRILLVILLE – The experiences offered in and around an allegedly haunted centuries-old farmhouse on Round Top Road are expanding under new ownership with an initiative dubbed “GHO Events,” that include exploration of the surrounding grounds.

Jacqueline Nuñez, a Boston-based real estate developer who currently lives in Dorcester, Mass., purchased the house for $1.5 million from Cory and Jennifer Heinzen in May.

She has since started running the GHO Events, which feature paranormal professionals hosting small groups for evening investigations for a few hours.

The house, the inspiration behind the 2013 hit horror film The Conjuring, is, “one of the most paranormally active locations in the world,” according to Nuñez. Built in the mid-1700s, the house was investigated by famed paranormal experts Ed and Lorraine Warren in the 1970s on request from then occupants in the Perron family, who believed it was haunted.

While the curious from across the globe have flocked to the neighborhood for a peek at home since the film was first released, it was the Heinzens who turned “The Farm at Round Top Road,” into a commercial enterprise, offering overnight stays and day tours, with experiences ranging from $25 to more than $200.

Nuñez, who was raised in Indiana and Oklahoma, attended Northwestern University on a full volleyball scholarship, earning a bachelor’s in psychology, and went on to receive a master’s degree in counseling at the University of Rhode Island. She served as an NCAA Division I Head Coach at La Salle University, Temple University, and Iowa State University before returning to college to earn a JD degree from Northeastern University School of Law.

She practiced as a litigation associate at two Boston law firms before focusing exclusively on real estate development in 2006, according to a biography posted on the business’s website.

But Nuñez has emphasized that her purchase of the property is not an extension of her commercial work, but rather a personal interest rooted, “in her strongly held beliefs that our consciousness survives death.”

Her first GHO event took place in June, and she has since launched a full lineup of investigations and tours through the end of the year, with various, “paranormal professionals,” guiding each experience. The Heinzens remain involved in operations, with Cory and Jennifer’s daughter Madison hosting the first GHO investigation. Upcoming hosts also include Cody Ray DesBiens and Satori Hawes from the Travel Channel Series “Ghost Hunters” and “Ghost Nation,” and Bill Brock.

“We have launched some new concepts,” noted Nuñez. “Our intent is to offer different events so that our guests can experience the Conjuring House in numerous ways.”

The latest of those concepts is GHO ROAM, which focuses on investigating the 8.5 acres of land surrounding the house before going inside.

“Did you know that the land at The Conjuring House is as active as the house?” asks a write up on an upcoming GHO ROAM scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 3. “Catch a UFO sighting? See a light orb? Hear the children giggling in the woods? These are examples of phenomena experienced.”

The cost for the event is $100 person.

Nuñez has also scheduled events with local mediums, “curated for each guest to have a personal experience and message from a spirit being or loved one.” The first three medium events have completely sold out, but more are expected to be announced soon. Day tours continue for a cost of $25, and the business reportedly plans to release a full calendar of 2023 events in August.
