Last October, locals lined up for the chance to serve as extras during the filming of The Haunting at Hill House. Now, the show is on Netflix and is already receiving national acclaim.
The Netflix original series was filmed around the state of Georgia and included several LaGrange locations. Most notably, Bisham Manor, a 1920s English Tudor-style mansion on Old Youngs Mill Road, was used as the namesake of the series. The location was chosen due to the style of home and a recommendation from the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce.
“[The filming representative] wanted to know about a castle-like structure or home, and I recommended Bisham Manor in LaGrange,” said Brittany Simmons, the visitor center manager for the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce’s West Point location.
