The Houdini Estate was built in Edwardian tradition back in the early 1900’s and was home to legendary magician, Harry Houdini and his wife, Bess. Harry Houdini practiced and mastered his skillful illusions at the estate and used his personal pool to practice his iconic feats of escape from handcuffs underwater. The estate still holds hidden tunnels and caves that can transport you back in time to the roaring 20’s. The Houdini Estate was restored in 1959 after a forest fire burned down the original estate, but now as modern amenities for its guests’ use and enjoyment.
