Potter SchoolhouseThe Potter Schoolhouse is the most recognizeable and historically significant building in the tiny town of Bodega. Built in 1873 of virgin redwood, the building served both as the schoolhouse (downstairs) and the town center, where dances and social functions were held (upstairs). Best known as the famous schoolhouse in the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock classic movie “The Birds,” it was abandoned the year before Hitchcock filmed there, and the movie is credited with saving it from destruction. The front room – the only one fixed up for the schoolroom scenes – is now a gift shop and a mini-museum on Bodega history and the making of the movie.
