Twin Peaks – The California Locations

While the Twin Peaks pilot episode was filmed in Washington state, Episodes 1-29 were filmed on a gigantic sound stage in Van Nuys, California with on location shooting taking place throughout the Los Angeles area from roughly the fall of 1989 until March of 1991.  I absolutely love the Washington locations, but the California locations have an entirely different life of their own.  Since the shows were shot on a relatively low budget of one million dollars per episode, California had to stand in for Washington with varying degrees of success.  Over the last few years I’ve spent alot of time traveling to these locations and documenting them with the help of quite a few friends along the way.  It has truly been a thrill finding all these locations, and I must admit a deep sadness that there are pretty much no more California locations to locate.  Any California locations not listed below have either not been identified or have extremely limited access.

For even more insight, please check out my interview with Twin Peaks location manager Barry Gremillion.
