I recently found a picture of the real house that was used as the exterior of the Leery House. A fan took a picture of it from Hewlit's Creek (The real creek in front of Dawson's house.) The fan spent some time in Wilmington and found out that the new owners of the house bought it shortly after the series wrapped. They apparantly have never watched the show, and they run off any fans and tourist that come anywhere near the house.
My question is Why would you buy a famous house from a huge hit tv show with a cult following, and get mad when someone wants to get near it?. They had to know it was considered Entertainment Memorabilia. I bet they paid well over 50% above market price.
I just saw online today that the water front condo that James Van Der Beek once stayed in during filming is on the market now for $599,000.
