The Munster Mansion

The Munster Mansion was the home of the main characters in The Munsters. It is located at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in the small town of Mockingbird Heights. The state the Munsters live in isn't revealed, but several indications suggest it is part of the outlying towns near Los Angeles.

Constructed in a Gothic Victorian style, the house stands on a property enclosed by a stone wall and the yard is full of weeds and dead trees. It's a nine-room mansion with one bathroom, secret passages and doorways. Adjacent by a trap door in the parlor, the unusually deeper cellar has been converted into a Laboratory. The structure seems to have been built on a Spanish prison that once held Morgan the Pirate, whose treasure was found in the backyard.
