  1. Great site! I plan on making a pilgrimage to the sites and your legwork will really help find these spots.

    1. Thanks Kevin and no problem! Good luck, I hope you enjoy visiting the locations as much as I did.

  2. The Then & Now idea on this site is so well done but this Halloween edition especially is so fascinating.

    It's interesting to see these arbitrary places where a classic was made - particularly the non-house landmarks, like the walkway stoop pillar Laurie sat on - still just resting there solitary and unaltered 37 years later.

    Need to make a drive over to Pasadena one afternoon and check a few out.

  3. I am planning on heading there myself, It's great to see these locations an just take it all in, great stuff...

  4. Where are the pillars "Laurie" sat on in relation to her house?

    1. About a block East of her house.

  5. I used to walk past the location in Walnut CA. On my way to school if I missed the bus. Last time I visited home I couldn't resist walking by there again.

  6. Great work. I'm a huge Halloween fan.

  7. What happened to the Myers' house? It looks terrible surrounded by businesses now!

  8. Did you know the interiors of Tommy Doyle's house (where Laurie is babysitting) & Lindsay's house (where Annie is babysitting) were actually the inside of the houses directly across the street from the exteriors. In fact the house where Laurie bangs on the door for help is the one used for the Doyle house interiors. You can really see how the exteriors/interiors don't match up by looking at architecture and window placement. Just a little trivia.

    1. That's fascinating! Thanks for the trivia Sharon.

  9. The interior of Laurie's house from the TV version was filmed in the Nightmare on Elm Street house at 1428 N. Genesee Ave.

    Not my discovery but it's some more good trivia.

    1. You can never have too much good trivia, thanks PaulH.

  10. Do you know where the houses from mama family season 2 is located and/or the house from the spin off show eunice is. If you have any ideas or clues I would grearly appreciate it
