The Rhode Island native revealed she invited a shaman into the property to remove the "energies and entities" that inhabited the house, and has now restored it to its former glory to host restoration tours and special events, including weddings.

Where is Jennifer Lawrence's wedding dress from?
Jennifer wore a dress from her cousin's bridal brand for her engagement party
Jennifer will no doubt have had her pick of designer wedding dresses. Her cousin, Lauren Wells, has her own bridal brand – L. Wells Bridal – which she gave her seal of approval by wearing one of her dresses for her engagement party. But as the face of Dior, she may well have opted to get a bespoke gown from the designer label for her big day. Speaking on the podcast Naked with Catt Sadler, Jennifer revealed she had been relaxed about the whole wedding planning process, explaining: "I like saw a dress I liked. I said, 'Oh, that's the dress,'" Lawrence said, explaining that she's been fairly low-key about wedding planning. "I saw a venue, and I was like, 'Cool, we got the venue.'"
What is on Jennifer Lawrence's wedding menu?
According to TMZ, Jennifer and Cooke have created an incredible menu for their guests. Guests can choose from sweet potato flat cakes, Brussels sprouts with cured egg yolk, salt cod beignet or smoked pork belly with pickled apple for appetisers, before taking their pick of wood-roasted fish with herbs and lemon-infused butter or a five-week-aged leg of beef with forager's sauce for their main, with side courses of heirloom roasted carrots, smoked new potatoes, and whey braised cabbage. Last but not least, desserts will include house-made marshmallow s'mores and fire-baked sourdough bread pudding with chocolate, salted caramel and fresh apple. Sounds delicious!
