Production Building / Norman Family Home
The main production building bearing the Norman Laboratories sign housed the filmmaker’s offices, film processing equipment and projection room where cast and crew viewed dailies. Richard and Gloria Norman and their children lived upstairs. Following Richard Sr.’s death in 1960, Gloria taught dance lessons in the building.
The generator shed still houses the original 1906 Meitz & Weiss engine and 1910 generator used to power lights, cameras and other film equipment, including a pump for a now-buried pool used to film water scenes.
Prop Storage Garage
The prop storage building also still houses several pieces of century-old equipment, including a GE generator and gas motor. Below is Captain Richard Norman (Richard E. Norman’s son) standing under a sign used to advertise the studios and beside an old generator.
Wardrobe / Costume House
This building was used as a dressing room and housed many of the costumes the actors wore.
