Family Matters

The house from the TV show “Family Matters” is another unfortunate case of a piece of television history being destroyed.  While the actual filming of the show took place at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California, the series was set in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.  This home, located in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, was used for exterior shots of the Winslow residence on the show.

Looking to convert the house into a multi-unit property, the homeowners decided renovation would not adequately suit their plans, so a full-blown demolition was approved by the city in late 2017.  The homeowners have stated that they will leave a photo of the original home, as well as photos of the cast of the show on the new property’s entryway, which will likely provide little solace to fans of the show.
