The actual locations where the TV show Teen Wolf is filmed
The Eichen House
The first half of Episode 18 ("Riddled") has Stiles being held captive in some nightmare world
where he seems to be trapped in a basement, with his foot caught in a bear trap,
while being tormented with riddles by some monstrous, sharp-toothed creature.
His friends are trying to find him. Lydia has one of her occult hunches, and tells them that
Stiles is being held at the Eichen House, which Lydia describes as "a mental health center,
where William Barrow, the 'Shrapnel Bomber', was committed."
But when they get to the sanitarium, and search its basement, they find nothing.
The same place shows up again in Epidode 19, when Stiles checks himself into the asylum -
and immediately witnesses a patient hang himself in the stairwell.
The asylum scenes were actually shot at the
Mary Andrews Clark Memorial Residence
at 306 Loma Drive, in Los Angeles.
It's midway between MacArthur Park and Echo Park, west of downtown L.A.
The home has an interesting history. It was built in 1913 by William Andrews Clark, a philanthropist,
to provide safe, inexpensive housing to girls who had to work (in a day when most women didn't work).
Unlike most YWCA's, this was a rather elegant residence, closer to a private estate than public housing.
The 200 girls living there got a great bargain. For only about $20 a week, they got a nice room,
free meals, laundry, even maid service. But they had to adhere to the home's strict rules of
behavior, which included no men allowed upstairs.
The home was shut down for a while after it was damaged by the 1987 earthquake.
It reopened in 1995 as low-income housing for both men & women.
The French Chateauesque building has been declared an Historic-Cultural Monument
and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
It's used often for filming, as well. For instance, it was the performing arts
school attended by Hilary Duff in the 2004 movie "Raise Your Voice".
It has also been seen in "The Ring 2", "The Wedding Planner", "American Pie 2",
"I Still Know What You Did Last Summer", and TV's "Charmed", "ER", "Party of Five",
"Providence", "The Pretender", a Macy Gray video, and dozens of commercials.
