This creepy plantation house is the house used in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2003 & 2006 movies and its located in Granger, Texas.
The Hewitt House – Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2003 & 2006 Plantation House
Originally this once beautiful plantation was built in Austin, Texas in the 1850’s and was The 6,000 square foot house is a six bedroom southern plantation that was built in Austin in the 1850’s then moved by train in the 1930’s and rebuilt brick by brick where it now sits, in Granger, Texas
Its in rough shape and at one time the house looked to be abandoned. The current owners only use the land for cotton growing, I think…I need more information about its current status.
I compared old pictures of the house to the pictures I took and I noticed the owners look to be making repairs and might even be restoring the place.
Do to the popularity of the house, the owners do not tolerate trespassing and from the signs posting on and along the property line they will prosecute trespassers or worse!
If you plan on visiting the house for exterior pictures from the road, bring a telephoto lens to have close up shots of the house. Its to far away for a standard point-n-shoot. Unless it’s a larger optical zoom feature.
The Hewitt House is located…
off 336 County Road
When I was there, the owners had parked their truck in front of the house and a mobile watering trailer. So the pictures loose just a little of the creep factor I was hoping for when I shot the house.
I ended up shooting the exterior from the road and I think this house deserves a revisit on nasty overcast day when the crops are almost ready for harvest. I think the creep factor would be multiplied. But even just shooting the house in its current harvest season, it gives off a creepy vibe.
In the time that I was there (almost 20 mins), I counted at least 10 or so people that stopped by and took pictures or selfies. As I was leaving several other cars were turning onto the access road.
I still have some research on the house’s history and I know that it will take some time. If you have any knowledge about this old house, know its current status, or even a way to contact owners, please contact me.
About the Images
The Hewitt House images were shot by hand along the road/property line with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL55210mm 4.5-6.3 OSS Lens. I then edited them in Adobe Lightroom. Next, I post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, bright the images, and bring out the details in the images. Then I removed the dust spots. Finally, I used Topaz DeNoiseTopaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the images.
