How can I stand on the same ground he once stepped upon?
The following are links to maps of various locales where Harold Lloyd lived and worked (with years in parentheses). Click on the location that interests you — and, if you ever visit any of the cities represented, you can have the same thrill I have: of standing where Harold once lived. Hey, we’re fans!
This list is shared for informational purposes only. It is not intended to encourage fans to make their presence known on these sites. The now-private homes are just that, private, and it is requested that, should visits be made to any location, courteous respect for the privacy of the site(s) be adhered to. No shrines! No candlelight vigils! No singing of Freshie out in the streets! No climbing/dangling, etc.!

I’d love to visit any of those spots! And know what? Just because you asked me not to, I now have the urge to sing Freshie for all to hear…and, of course, I’ll do that while I’m climbing/dangling from any tall buildings that suit my fancy. “Oh, why do they all pick on Freshie…?”
