Celebrate Hitchcock and ‘The Birds’!

B50: Experience

 The Bounty of Bodega

Alfred Hitchcock's movie "The Birds" has international appeal and attracted fans to visit the remaining original film locations in Bodega, CA. This includes The Potter Schoolhouse and the historic St Teresa of Avila Church- famous by Ansel Adams' iconic photo of the church.

The most recognizable and historically significant building in the small town of Bodega is the Potter Schoolhouse. Built in 1873, the building served as the schoolhouse and town center where dances and social functions were held upstairs. The building was closed to the public in 1962 and remained vacant for years until it was purchased and turned into a private residence.

B50 is two day community event with a rare opportunity to see the inside of both, along with docent led tours and displays of the town history. This family friendly event benefits the Rancho Bodega Historic Society and Bodega Land Trust, bringing the history of Bodega to life and helping preserve the land for the future.
