F.A.Q. The Black House

Whatever happened to Anton LaVey’s house in San Francisco?

Dr. LaVey’s Victorian home, once located at 6114 California Street in San Francisco, was vacated by his surviving family members after his death and remained empty for a number of years. LaVey had earlier sold his home to an old friend to raise money to pay off the palimony suit by his former partner, Diane Hegarty. The sons of this friend took over ownership and evicted LaVey’s partner, Blanche Barton, along with their son. Eventually, on October 16 of 2001, the house was demolished and remained an empty lot—all rubble having been carted away immediately. Beware of people claiming to be selling pieces of the house as the wrecking crew did not allow anyone on-site to take souvenirs. A new residential building now stands in its place with a different address.

You can read Magus Gilmore’s tribute to Dr. LaVey’s evocative dwelling here, which also speaks about the new Black House he owns with his wife, High Priestess Nadramia.
