Silence of the Lambs House

The drive to the house is great, over a one-lane bridge and through a one-lane tunnel. It's on private land. Able to take photos from the train tracks.

[Kevin Mergen, 09/10/2017]

Dr. Lecter advised us that it's safer to take photos of the front of the house from Circle Road, rather than the back of the house while standing on active railroad tracks.

Silence of the Lambs Torture House

Located right near the train tracks.

[Stacy, 04/15/2017]

Exteriors were shot here for the 1991 film of the elusive house where Buffalo Bill had his victim pit and his little dog and his bottle of lotion. At night we could never hear the lambs screaming because that train was so loud.
