The 14-room Victorian home often referred to as the “The Haunted House on the Hill,” as it was rumored to be a model for the Hitchcock movie Psycho. The house was built in 1867 by prominent businessman Freeman Underwood and is now owned by the Vanags family. I know the Vanags family so was able to go into the yard to get the close views. It is a beautiful house and painted with much detail. Click on the picture to see more detail.
Here is the view that gave it the name "The Haunted House on the Hill" Looking at the back of the house from the street below.
This is "The Haunted House on the Hill" above the Bates Motel from the movie "Psycho". There are some similarities but it wasn't really the one used as an example. It made for a good story. Mr. Vanags said his house is really too big for the family since his daughter has gone to college and he was looking to sale the house.
