Where is Mare of Easttown filmed? Guide to ALL the Filming Locations

Posted by

Mare of Easttown was filmed in the southwestern area of Philadelphia, in Chester County and Delaware County. Kate Winslet portrays the titular Mare Sheehan, a small-town detective investigating a Twin Peaks-style murder set in the fictional town of Easttown, Pennsylvania.

The series creator Brad Ingelsby commented in a production video that Easttown is a mixture of several locations in Pennsylvania, where he grew up.

The filmmakers wanted to make sure that the feeling of the town and the vibe of the show was specific in many different ways, trying to pick locations that were true to its atmosphere and not just the most picturesque.

The cast with Kate Winslet

The cast also includes Evan Peters as Detective Colin Zabel, Guy Pearce as professor Richard Ryan, Julianne Nicholson as Lori Ross (Mare's childhood best friend), Angourie Rice as Siobhan (Mare's teenage daughter), and Jean Smart as Helen (Mare's mother).

We will be updating and expanding this (almost) spoiler-free report every week as new locations are revealed. Welcome to Delco and to the most complete guide to the Mare of Easttown filming locations that you can find:

Where was Mare of Easttown filmed?

Miss Lady Hawk Herself
In the first episode, Mare is visiting Mrs. Carroll’s (played by Phyllis Somerville), to investigate a Peeping Tom that her granddaughter saw in the backyard.

These scenes (and the ones taking place here in the next episodes) were filmed at Village on Plaza Street in Marcus Hook, on Maple Street and Cedar Street. The pet store scene was filmed at Aquarium World in Boothwyn.

Erin McMenamin house
The McMenamin house is located at 1839 S Creek Road in Chadds Ford (Delaware County). According to Realtor, this approximately 4,166 square feet, six-bedroom and three-bathroom home was built in 1920. The house is currently off the market but has an estimated value of $632,800.

It seems to be enough to cover for the surgery to treat Erin's baby's ear, isn’t it? This is a private residence, please be considerate to the owners of the property.

Easttown police station
Easttown's police station is the old train station on Fleetwood Street in Coatesville, PA. The series opens with several establishing shots of the streets of this town and its scenic Fairview Cemetery.

Mare of Easttown house
Mare's house is located in Wallingford. Wallingford is a nice community in Delaware County, located about 9 miles from Philadelphia proper. Her ex-husband's home (Frank Sheehan, played by David Denman) is actually located to the rear of Mare's house.

These residences are privately owned and we ask you to respect their privacy. The unexpected success of the series has caused an interest in the houses that is very unwelcome for the owners.

Delaware County is colloquially referred to as Delco. According to director Craig Zobel, Kate Winslet was the only actor confident enough to go back to her native English accent in between takes. For the cast and crew, witnessing Winslet immediately switch from a Delco accent to her normal accent was an astonishing sight.


Erin McMenamin Building in Coatesville
The apartment building where Erin's friend, Jess (played by Ruby Cruz), lives is also located in Coatesville, at 338 E Diamond St.

Easttown High School
There were recorded two gym scenes. The one of the video of Mare scoring a shot, and celebrating the state championship in the present.

One was filmed at Coatesville Intermediate School, the other one at the old South Brandywine Middle School. Located at 600 Doe Run Road in Brandywine near Coatesville, South Brandywine Middle School is permanently closed since 2019.


American Legion Ogden
The exterior of the bar where Mare meets Richard Ryan (Guy Pearce) is the American Legion at 2630 Ogden Avenue in Ogden. However, one of our readers recognized the interior, shot at the Star Hotel bar in Marcus Hook.

In episode 3, the exterior of the bar where Mare and Colin are drinking is also the American Legion, but the interior is the Sundance Saloon in Aston.

Mare of Easttown is the second HBO series that stars both Kate Winslet and Guy Pearce after Mildred Pierce. Both won Emmy Awards for their roles in the 2011 miniseries.

Easttown viaduct Creedham creek
Local news website Patch.com reported that film crews with 'Easttown Township Police' vehicles were spotted along Forbidden drive at Wissahickon Valley Park near Roxborough.

Also, thanks to a local neighbor, we can confirm the exact location where the scenes taking place under the viaduct, in the Sharp's Woods and Creedham Creek, were filmed. The spot is situated below Henry Avenue near the Gorgas Lane entrance of Wissahickon Valley Park.

Easttown church
The church is the historic St Michael's Evangelical Lutheran at 6671 Germantown Avenue in Northwest Philadelphia. The temple remained active for over 288 years until it closed in 2016.

As in the series, Father Dan Hastings and Deacon Mark Burton's home (played by Neal Huff and James McArdle respectively) is a house located on the grounds of the church.

Mare of Easttown drehorte
According to a member of the film crew, the interior of Richard's book signing venue was filmed in two different locations. Mare's footage was recorded at Philadelphia Cricket Club.

As Richard's role was recast, his side of the scene was shot in the same building as the exterior: Girard College in Philadelphia. The restaurant from episode 3 was also filmed at Girard College, in the basement of Founder's Hall.

The courthouse from the finale episode is also Founder's Hall at Girard College, built between 1833 and 1847 in the Greek revival style.

Petrol station in Phoenixville
The gas station of the second episode, "Fathers", is located at 508 Bridge Street in Phoenixville. A local resident told us that shortly after production concluded, a realtor transformed the former gas station into their office.

Pastorius Park Philadelphia
The Brandywine Park that first appears in the third episode, "Enter Number Two", was filmed at Pastorius Park in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood in Philadelphia.

This is the same park where Lori and Mare talk while sitting on a bench in the fourth episode.

Image courtesy of HBO - Maps: House / Bar


Easttown Middle School
The establishing shot of the Easttown Middle School is the Tinicum Elementary School at 91 Seneca Street in Essington.

The interior in the cafeteria was filmed at South Brandywine Middle School in East Fallowfield (the same location as one of the gym scenes).

However, the exterior scene with Lori picking up her son was filmed at Gordon Educational Center in Coatesville.


New English Style Pizza
The pizzeria scene and the alley where Deacon Mark is beaten were filmed at New English Style Pizza in Marcus Hook.

Mare and Colin's date restaurant (the one with the wild goat) was built on a soundstage. The series was headquartered at SunCenter Studios in Aston.

The gym scene could not be Coatesville High School unless they cut the size of the bleachers in half, added windows, and changed the hardwood floors and all of the colors from red and black to blue. It looks to me like it is Villa Maria's gym in Malvern.

As far as the Philadelphia cricket club goes, Mares footage is at the Cricket club. Richard's role was recast and his side of the scene was in the same building as the exterior. The outside of the cricket club is a building located on Girard College. The restaurant scene was also at Girard College in the catacombs. I was part of the production.

A Coatesville Parent noted that part of the gym scenes was filmed at Coatesville Intermediate School without signage and the rest at South Brandywine Middle School with signage. The signage still visible if you walk by the middle school according to a resident of East Fallowfield Township. Also, Coatesville students were delayed returning to the Coatesville Intermediate School after in-person classes started because filming was still going on.

I really enjoyed your photo synopsis identifying the various locations of the various and quite detailed settings of the film. I am now able to associate those aspects of the film with my personal knowledge and history. I used to live on Corinthian Avenue which was the entrance to Girard College (Founders Hall Scene). I've walked in Pastorius Park in Chestnut Hill. I've admired the old Coatesville Train Station. Driven over the Brandywine Creek Bridge from which the bike was thrown. Picked up Hoagies at Don's Deli on Meetinghouse Road. Worked in Chester and always admired the historic buildings near the Septa/Amtrak Station... and have sadly seen the poverty a few blocks away. I was contacted by a location scout about using my House in Pocopson Township for the McMenamin Residence but lost out to the home on Creek Road. I now realize how challenging and detail-oriented that position is and I have to compliment the location scouts for their originality and ingenuity... no easy task. I'm thoroughly enjoying Mare of Easttown, not only because of the local connection to the film but the excellent storyline and most talented cast and crew. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.

I believe there were several scenes shot in Smedley Park. In the scene where Erin arrives at Sharps Woods and later when the cops were looking at the body, you could see the trolley trestle at Smedley.

There were some scenes filmed in Aston - the part where Mare hurt her foot trying to jump the fence was filmed in Aston because a neighbor posted a video of them filming that scene outside her house.

To clarify the basketball scene. There were 2. One was Mare young and at a different school that where the pics come from and there was a video of her making that shot. The other basketball scene when they celebrate Mare is a diff location and all signage was there. This is why there are conflicting reports. 2 schools to completely different scenarios.

In the fifth episode "illusions", where was the interior and exterior of Easttown Middle School filmed? Also, the scenes where Ryan is talking to his Mom confirming his Dad's secret affair. I hope the attack on Moira Ross in the school cafeteria was used as a teachable moment too. No child should be hurt like that especially going to lunch in a "safe" environment. Where was that filmed? I am seeing Gordon Middle School in Coatesville, PA for the exterior and a nearby park area across the street? The interior could be South Brandywine Middle School again? Any thoughts?

5th Episode with the elderly old man wandering through the alley and where Mare follows him inside his house was shot in Marcus Hook at a development called the Village on Plaza Street.

The "courthouse" or "courtroom" and where John talks to Lori after his hearing is all Founders Hall at Girard College. And no, we did not use real license plates - no show does, they are all fake and put on the cars when they get to set. They aren't even made of metal, they are printed.

Welcome to Coatesville! As a lifelong Southeastern PA resident - Grew up in Phoenixville, went to college at Widener U in Chester, and now live in Coatesville. This series was fun just to spot locations. Lots of Delco friends from my college days, Cardinal O'Hara and Archbishop Carroll kids.

My daughter was an extra for some of the scenes filmed here in Coatesville. The gym scenes were split between the Intermediate High School and South Brandywine. The cafeteria was at South also. My daughter was watching from just off-camera during the scene when Ryan beats the kid after teasing his sister. One of her best friends was at the table behind the beating.

The exterior of Ryan jumping the fence in the last episode was outside Gordon Learning Center on Kersey Street right behind City Hall. The basketball court he was on is Ash Park also on Kersey. BTW, NBA star Richard Hamilton (Pistons) grew up playing on that court as a kid. The train station/police station is still in use for Amtrak stops 2 to 3 times a day. It is off of 3rd Avenue before the rail underpass.

Fairview Cemetery is on the south hill of the town. I have family buried there. Carver Court is near the Coatesville High complex. The high-rise apartment is senior housing. The scenes were shot from the Diamond Street side but it also fronts on Lincoln Highway between 3rd and 4th avenues. In some of the street shots used as B-roll, you can see the steel mill in the background.

The gas station scene was shot in Phoenixville on Bridge Street across from the Nudy's Restaurant and Town Supply. My brother lives just up the hill from the location. His street was closed for filming when they were there. All good stuff. I'm sure my Delco friends had fun picking out locations too.

As a former Philly resident- now overseas- I very much appreciate this excellent novella series being set and shot in SE PA. Here is to hoping that this will be repeated by the likes of M. Knight S. even an ensemble cast DRAMEDY. May the public places receive added considerate visitors. Best wishes to the businesses that participated in this well-done theatrical drama. PLEASE be very respectful of the privacy and properties of those residents who showed the area to be lovely and the people, also. A round of applause to the neighbors who had to put up with inconveniences during filming.

I guess they never decided to keep the scene that was shot at McIntosh Inn in Media. I was staying there when they filmed a hotel scene.
