Editor’s Note: this text is from the old version of BTTF tour – we’re going to be revising these articles in the coming days. The photos and screenshots from these articles will all be down below for the time being, instead of thumbnails within the text. Thanks for your patience, and visit us again when everything’s tidied up!
THIS LOCATION IS A PRIVATE RESIDENCE, DO NOT DISTURB OCCUPANTS!
WEBMASTERS, PLEASE READ: We are the first to post the accurate site of this location online. Please credit BTTFtour.com if you list the address for this location, We worked hard to find it! See below to find out why we ask.. This location is a private residence. DO NOT DISTURB OCCUPANTS! Just off the 210 Freeway, a stone’s throw from old Route 66 and relatively close to Pasadena locations such as the Gamble House, Jennifer’s house makes a picture perfect stop and a perfect addition to your sightseeing day!
But, until this website, Jennifer’s House has been something of an enigma for Back to the Future fans and location hunters alike!! Some suspected it’s location to be near Bushnell Ave in South Pasadena, or near Whittier High School, but since filming wrapped, this site has remained a mystery.
Now, for the very first time online, we feature Jennifer’s house from Back to the Future parts II and III! This house is a beautifully maintained piece of real estate, and it’s owners have done a fabulous job in keeping it just like – if not better than – it was on film. Of course, I’m referring to the “real” 1985 scenes (BTTF pIII), not the Alternate 1985 scenes (with the bars on the windows).
For over FIVE YEARS we hunted for Jennifer’s house, coming up with many likely neighborhoods and a few likely houses, and during all that time it was right under my nose!!! But it took the help of the Location Manager from parts II and III, Mr. M.J. Burmeister, to help me finally narrow the search and confirm it’s location!
Since we first published this location on the internet, BTTF fans have been awesome. You guys have been very respectful to the homeowners and to us. We don’t usually ask that you keep the address to the locations off of your websites, but we ask that you do not republish this one, unless you quote the following bold paragraphs. Thanks to everyone for all the kind remarks on this location. Send us pictures of your visits, and we’ll be glad to post them up online!
We spoke with the property owner in 2002 and they said it is fine for BTTF fans to take photos from the street, but please do not come on the property, especially the front porch, as it is trespassing and you’re liable to scare the daylight out of the local residents (and their dogs.. which are likely to be set on you)
It’s easy to see the porch, and to get great photos of it just by zooming in with your regular camera. There’s no need to trespass, or bother these people. But for BTTFtour.com, we were allowed to come up and take photos on the porch to share with all of you, especially you BTTF fans out of state and overseas, since you probably won’t be getting the chance to visit any time soon. They let us do this so you would not have to do this! They were not there for the filming, they can not and will not answer any of your questions!! PLEASE PARK ACROSS THE STREET ALONG THE CURB, TAKE PHOTOS QUIETLY, AND LEAVE.
UPDATE: We first broke this location to the public several years ago on BTTFtour.com – since then many people have re-published it’s address all over. We don’t mind this – no one “owns” the information – it’s for all of us to enjoy* – but please, if you post this information on your website, PLEASE make sure to add the last two paragraphs above, and if you’re cool, link us! The nice folks who live here gave us permission to post this page & these photos, with the condition that we tell people the above, and ask them not to come up on their lawn, or especially on their porch!! When you repost this without specifically stating that, more and more retards bother the owners until BOOM! privacy hedge 6′ tall. We’ve seen it before!!
