The Yellow House
The fictitious address of The Yellow House is 1910 Ezekiel Drive, Seattle WA, 98924.
The real house is located on the corner of Fourth Street and Fourth Avenue in New Westminster, British Columbia. (View on Google Maps)
Please respect the privacy of the residents fortunate enough to live in this beautiful home!

Robert McLachlan Asc Csc, respected Director of Photography throughout all three seasons of Millennium developed special lighting and photographic techniques for the series. As Frank would travel further away from his family home to visit horrific crime scenes and profile cases for law enforcement agenices and the FBI, the colour overtones of the scenes would darken and become more grainy in texture. However in contrast the scenes involving the Yellow House were brightly lit and often saturated with colour depicting the warmth and love Frank found in his family. The Yellow House has forever become a cherished monument with the show's legion of fans, even becoming a place of homage for one lucky fan in 2006 which you can read more about here.
Sadly the Yellow House which also held a special place in the hearts of characters Frank, Catherine and Jordan Black, was not free of the occasional dark influence of evil including the basement murder of Frank's friend Lt. Bob Bletcher.
By the time Millennium's second episode Gehenna was to be produced, the local residents had decided (with good reason) they didn't want their lives disrupted by the regular presence of film crews, cast, the equipment and vehicles that went with producing a television series. A replacement for the Yellow House was needed and so filming switched to a similar house that had been used in the second ever episode of The X-Files entitled Deep Throat.
Series Creator Chris Carter says: “This yellow house which we spent a lot of time making into the sort of perfect house - we re-shingled the house, we painted it a particular color of yellow. When we went to start the series after the pilot had been picked up, we were no longer able to shoot at the house. It was a very expensive set to lose. I think the biggest beneficiary was the family that lived there who basically had a remodeled house.”
