For the first time ever you’ll soon be able to step inside Buffalo Bill’s house from The Silence of the Lambs, as the property located on 8 Circle Street in Perryopolis, PA is opening its doors to fans of the 1991 classic. The 3-story Princess Anne Victorian was put on the market last year, you may recall, and it’s now being turned into a tourist destination by the new owner.
The house will be opened up for overnight stays, on-location filming, special events & guided tours, weddings and more. It’s set to be a “movie-themed destination like no other.”
New owner Chris Rowan explains, “After months and months of hard work learning how to properly open and build a business from the ground up, I am proud to say that Buffalo’s Bill’s House is open for victims (I mean, the public!). As an avid Silence of the Lambs and “Buffalo Bill” fan, and with my knowledge of the industry, I have big plans to turn it into a “cinematic destination” complete with the ability to stay, and to conduct tours of the residence for all of the fans. I also have a vision that includes having the “well” and “Buffalo Bill’s workshop” recreated and built on-site as permanent sets, so fans may have the most unique photo opportunities during their visit with mementos that will last them a lifetime!”
“I have so many ideas to preserve the history of the home and share it with the many who love it as much as I do. I hope to see you all soon to enjoy some fava beans and a nice chianti!”
The house was built in 1910, and it includes 4 bedrooms, a formal living room, parlor room, multiple fireplaces, a garden, wraparound porch, gazebo and even an in-ground pool.
