LINK: Unlocking the secrets of Houdini’s life in Stamford

Here's a very well-researched article by John Breunig in the Stamford Advocate about Houdini's connections to the town of Stamford, Connecticut. Lots of info here I didn't know about Houdini's forgotten farm. (Click the headline to read.)

David and Elaine Sansone, above, live on the Webbs Hill Road property where Houdini once owned a farm. The original house burned down in the 1960s, but the rebuilt home is on the original foundation and in the same saltbox style.



  1. I like Bill Kalush's speculation that HH sold the farmhouse after owning it only one year because it was too much work to maintain the place.
