The House with a Clock in Its Walls is fiction but the setting is a real house in Marshall, Michigan. Take a look inside the mansion that inspired the story.

Michigan has been the setting for many movies and the locale for this one is an historic mansion in Marshall; the town that would have been the state capital. The imaginative, adventurous story of the house with a clock in its walls is set inside the Cronin house at 407 N. Madison Street.

Built in 1873, it's easy to see that Hollywood has been generous with the special effects budget for the film and they actually shot the movie in Georgia- Jack Black never set foot in Southwest Michigan. Take a look at the real estate listing from the last time the house was sold in 2015 and see inside the real life dwelling that inspired 'The House with a Clock in Its Walls.'
