Historic Georgia mansion plays pivotal part in ‘Stranger Things’ latest season

The Creel House was right here in Georgia all along

“Stranger Things” season four is finally here, giving us a deeper look into one of Georgia’s historic mansions. That’s because the fabled Creel House of the fictional Hawkins, Indiana, is actually Rome, Georgia’s own Claremont House. It’s a circa 1882 Victorian-era abode with a movie-star personality.

“Stranger Things” fans have come to know the Creel family in a creepy way this season, but there’s no need to spoil the fun. Rome, Georgia, residents will recognize a familiar sight when the family’s home makes its debut.

Claremont House is a 7,122 square-foot Gothic Victorian mansion that was built by Rome attorney and East Rome alderman Hamilton Yancey.

The historic estate functioned as a bed and breakfast for some time before its sale in 2019. The home was given a less inviting and more sinister appearance for its Stranger Things debut.

To avoid spoilers, we will only reference the home as it is seen in the teaser trailer above.

Known as the Creel House in the show’s latest season, the Georgia mansion can be seen looking abandoned, creepy and possibly haunted after its Hollywood makeover. The interior’s antique furniture can be seen on full display.

If you want to learn more about the Claremont House’s pivotal spot in season 4, however, you’ll need to log into Netflix. “Stranger Things” season 4 hit the streaming service on May 27 and is available now.
