Hi everyone, first time posting here.

Has anyone visited the former childhood home of the Wilson brothers?
I have just found out about it.



Best,

Jason

Hi Jason, 

Your thread title reminded me of a clip I found a few years back (actually uploaded in March 2007), of their original home from 1941-45 before they moved to the address where the monument now stands: 



A little heartbreaking and yet it seemed darn tiny even for a family of 4, considering Carl wasn't on the way until a year later.

Welcome, Jason.

Back in 1990 in San Diego, I was at a fan convention where someone ran a ten-minute, black-and-white video from the inside of the Hawthorne home:  "This was Brian's practice room,"  etc.

If that "someone" is a member of this group, it would be a thrill to see it again here!

I don't think he'd want to see that house again. Murry was a sadist.

Neither house exists today. The Hawthorne one was torn down for the 105 Freeway, which runs right over the Wilson property. The monument was built in 2005 and sits at the point closest to where the hourse stood.

I don't know if that's sad to hear or not, given the childhood situation.

I have been there. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it because of what they did with the freeway and everything. But I ended up being really glad that I went. It’s great to see the monument there and look at all of the bricks and just be there. I highly reccomend it as a fan.

Here's a cool video of David Marks giving a tour of the old neighborhood.

Seems to be the fate of Wilson homes: the Bellagio house no longer exists as it did when Brian lived there 1967-79. Not merely remodelled but razed to the ground. However 1448 Laurel Way - the Pet Sounds/Smilehouse - still looks pretty much the same, at least from the outside.

Yep, houses change.  And even the Lincoln log cabin wasn't his.

And for Lisa - an eye for an eye and limb for a limb.  Dennis's honor to the extreme.
