About This Place:


Roff Home, located in Watseka, IL, just 90 miles south of Chicago, is in the final stages of a decade-long effort to restore it to its original character. Now you can experience the newly renovated Roff Home through public events, tours, overnight stays, and paranormal investigations.

Roff Home, where much of the Watseka Wonder story took place. has been called “America’s first documented case of spiritual possession.” The story explains the strange case of the possession of a young Lurancy Vennum by the spirit of Mary Roff, the daughter of a founder of the small town of Watseka.

The house and story was featured in the documentary “The Possessed,” produced by the Booth Brothers and aired regularly on the SyFy channel. The home has also been featured on the Travel Channel.
