Welcome to Buffalo Bill's House

This unique property was featured extensively throughout the climactic finale of The Silence of the Lambs starring the Academy Award winning Best Actress, Jodie Foster (playing FBI Agent Clarice Starling) and featuring the deeply disturbing portrayal of serial killer Buffalo Bill played by veteran actor Ted Levine. The home still features many attributes that have remained unchanged since filming took place 30 years ago!

Buffalo Bill’s House is situated along the Youghiogheny River, at the base of the scenic Laurel Mountains and within walking distance to Hazelbaker’s Canoe & Kayak Rentals, and the Great Allegheny Passage walking & biking trails – Layton trailhead mile marker 102. In addition, we are just a short drive to Ohiopyle State Park & Frank Lloyd’s Fallingwater.
