Say Bodega, and many people think of Alfred Hitchcock?s famous horror movie, ?The Birds.? The thriller was filmed in 1963 at The Schoolhouse on Bodega Lane, with the soaring white wood building playing a prominent role in the action.
Built in 1873, the house was originally the Potter Schoolhouse, then a local community center, an inn, a restaurant, and a guesthouse. It?s now a private residence, with patient owners who hope that too many people don?t peer in their windows. Hitchcock saved the property, in reality, since the redwood building had been abandoned the year before he decided to film.
