House II: The Second Story (1987) was filmed at the historic Stimson house in Los Angeles.  The house was built in 1891 and declared a Historic-Cultural Monument in 1979.  But House II isn't the only production to use the house.

Recorded Live

The house's interior was used for the anthology horror film After Midnight (1989) during the first story "The Old Dark House".  A different exterior was used in the movie.  It was also featured in two made-for-TV miniseries: Captains And The Kings (1976) and Testimony Of Two Men (1977).  The exterior was used in the short student film Recorded Live (1975), which used to air as a bumper on HBO.

The house has also made several other television appearances, including a season two episode of The Bionic Woman (1976) titled "Black Magic", which guest starred Vincent Price.  It was also used in the first season of Pushing Daisies (2007), including the pilot episode "Pie-lette" and "The Fun In Funeral".  Most recently, it was featured as the home of Don Draper's ex-wife in the fifth season of Mad Men (2007).
