FILMING LOCATION SPOTLIGHT – “DARK SHADOWS” (1966-1971)

On the second and fourth Friday of every month in 2020, Limelight Magazine spotlights the filming location site(s) we visited for some of our favorite (and not so favorite) films. Today we spotlight one of the filming locations for the Gothic soap opera Dark Shadows which aired on ABC from from June 27, 1966, to April 2, 1971. The top photo is a screen shot taken from the series while the photo underneath is what the location looks like today.

This filming location used for the Collinswood Mansion, the home of vampire Barnabas Collins, is the Carey Mansion, located in Newport, R.I.
