Believe It or Not, This is Where the Real Addams Family Lived

In the popular imagination, the creator of the spooky Addams Family series, Charles Addams, probably occupied some gloomy Victorian, not a well-groomed Colonial in northern New Jersey. Well, it turns out the genius who created such creepy environs for his characters actually lived in this quaint six-bedroom in Westfield Town, N.J., along with his wife—not named Morticia—from 1920 to 1947. The house is now available for sale for $839K, and, it should be mentioned, has been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
