One of the first big hits when the Fox Network launched in the 80s, Married With Children ran for 11 seasons. It starred Katey Segal, Christina Applegate, David Faustino, and TV legend Ed O’Neill, who now stars in Modern Family.
On Married… with Children, the Bundy family live in the suburbs of Chicago. While many houses used for establishing shots are in the LA area, the producers of Married With Children selected a house in the Chicago area. The Bundy house is located at 641 Castlewood Lane in Deerfield, Illinois. The house looks virtually the same as it did in the show 30 years ago. Remember when visiting a house to follow my guidelines on how to be respectful.
Across the street from the Bundy’s were their neighbours, Marcy and Steve Rhodes. In later seasons, Steve left the show and Marcy married Jefferson D’Arcy. We saw the living room several times, but to my knowledge, the house was never shown from the outside. There is a house across the street on Castlewood Lane, so one could presume this is where Marcy and her husbands lived.
Another Chicago landmark you can visit is Buckingham Fountain located in downtown Chicago. This is the fountain featured in the opening and closing credits of the show. It is a great photo op as you can see the Chicago skyline behind the fountain.
