September marks the beginning of the Halloween season, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve already been out collecting all manner of spooky decorations. As if we didn’t need more excuses to load up on creepy tchotchkes, I’ve discovered what is likely to become the latest obsession of paranormal nerds like me: an entire line of replicas depicting America’s most haunted houses.

The Bradford Exchange, which normally releases those Christmas villages your grandmother loves, has finally gone paranormal and is turning our obsession with America’s most haunted houses into collectable sculptures. The amazing new series America’s Haunted Village Collection will feature some of the country’s most famous real-life haunted homes in stunningly creepy detail.

The series, which kicks off the whole creepy collection with the strongest contender, The Amityville Horror House, is planning on creating an undisclosed number of haunted abodes for you to collect. The series will follow up Amityville with the equally-as-terrifying Franklin Castle, which was the focal point for an episode of last year’s Paranormal Lockdown with hosts Nick Groff, Katrina Weidman, and special guest John E. L. Tenney.

I’m sure you’re already planning on buying them all, which won’t be hard as they’re priced at a reasonable 60 bucks. The creators have yet to disclose which model will take the third place, though in my opinion I would love to see either the Myrtles Plantation or the infamously evil LaLaurie House.  Which one do you hope makes the cut?

How about the Lizzie Borden house? Or the Lemp Mansion That’d be pretty cool!

If it’s only three total in the set, it’s tough to choose the third! But if we’re going for infamous haunted buildings that have a distinct yet beautiful quality to them, my hope is for the Whaley House (since they need something from the western US to balance things out, right?).

Either way I’m dangerously tempted to buy a subscription…

Just do it, bruh! Buy the stuff! Oh, and Greg, I’m a paranormal nerd as well. 🙂 #Paranormal4Ever #BuyTheHouses #GottaFindEmAll

I took one of the ghost tours of Franklin Castle years ago, it was given at midnight by some guy who said he was the owner, the place was creepy as hell, there was a gutted cat who our tour guide said had been attacked by some rats in the house, then a bat flew at one of the guys in our group and we all ran outside screaming.

…Is the Bradford Exchange Haunted Village collection discontinued?
I cannot find evidence that it isn´t, but I know that it have been claimed on ebay, that the Lizzie Borden house would come up for sale.
