  • I was only able to stop and enjoy the outside of the church but it is such a pretty little church. Glad I stopped to check it out  more »
  • Great church to find and take pictures of. Couldn't go in but love seeing old churches. Also was in the movie, The Birds, so cool.  more »

  • Serenely and so Beautiful! It's besides the Potter School house ( now a private home) where Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 film.." The Birds" was filmed.
  • The famous church from the Alfred Hitchcock movie "The Birds." Adjacent to the famous Potter School, also in the movie. They both can be found on the Bodega Hwy in the town of Bodega about a mile inland from the Hwy 1 coast. I always take friends to see them. The Church is still functioning for mass services.
  • Could walk around but not see inside. Visit was interesting but a view inside. The school looks as though it has been converted to a house. Naturally one had to respect their privacy.
  • Great little stop if your a fan of Hitchcock's. I love how he used so many places throughout Sonoma County and highlighting little things. He was a master in his field and he was ahead of his time. I plan on coming back here this summer and taking some amazing black and white photos. Id love to do a shoot here one day...
  • it is very cool to see the town that the birds was filmed and the church and playhouse however the gas station is no longer there and neither is the Alfred Hitchcock statue but still very cool.
