~The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet ~
The real-life house The Nelson family lived in was on the show for external TV shots as the fictional Nelson’s home. I did not know that!
The interior scenes for the show was a stage depicting the real-life interior of The Nelson’s home.
Some of the story lines for the show were taken from the family’s real life too.
I think The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was the first and original reality show!
I can kind of remember watching The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet show on TV. I can hear Ozzie’s soft fatherly voice in my head like a familiar echo. I was not old enough to be boy crazy for Ricky Nelson, well maybe a little.
The iconic Nelson home’s address is 1822 Camino Palmero Street in Los Angeles.
The famous Ozzie and Harriet home was built in 1910 and forever preserved in our minds and on film. It’s been beautifully updated. I read on AOL that:
“Ozzie’s wood-paneled pub is now a modern family room.”
“As recent as 2013 the house still had the original kitchen layout as seen on the TV show.”
“Some historic features of the home were preserved. The siding is new, but looks the same.”
Have a look at a 1952 episode to see the house, including a 1950’s commercial, and then the show. Check out some of the interior house scenes.
The Ozzie and Harriet home has 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. See more rooms in the house and some more before the remodel photos on Zillow.
