The Frederick Mitchell Mooers House from “Mod Squad”

May 22nd, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

As I’ve said before, stalking begets stalking.  Back in January, I wrote a post about a spectacular abandoned residence that had been featured in recent episodes of both Major Crimes and Parks and Recreation.  A longtime reader (a veeeery longtime reader, pretty sure he’s been with me since the beginning!) named John was intrigued by the property and started exploring the surrounding neighborhood via Google Street View.  In doing so, he stumbled upon the Frederick Mitchell Mooers House, an absolutely stunning Victorian located just a […]

Lisa’s post also featured some information about a movie named “A Haunting in Salem” that Dick’s grandson Shane had recently directed. I was shocked to discover that the straight-to-DVD horror flick […]
