Harry's Ate-Ball Tavern

Harry's Ate Ball Inn was filmed at what was the West End Tavern in 1961. Today it is Meal's Mobile Home Sales, 1300 Ritner Highway (Route 11 just South of Carlisle.) The West End Tavern is now located about a quarter mile further south on Route 11. (BL)

Westminster Service Station

The Westminster Service Station was torn down some time ago. It was located on Route 641 (The Newville Rd.).

As you leave Carlisle going south on Route 11, turn Right through the railroad underpass, and take an immediate left. Go about a half mile; the Station was located on the left next to the bungalow (Street number about 1050 + or -).

The first picture, taken from the entrance to the Westminster Cemetery (Route 641 and McClures Gap Rd.) shows where the Station was located. (BL)

Westminster Service Station

This is where the Westminster Service Station used to be. The big house with the chimney can just be seen in the episode. You have to look carefully behind the bus, through the trees, and you can make out a window and the chimney.

I never noticed that before until taking these photos. The little mobile homes were obviously newer, but the house looked like it had been there for a while. Sure enough, I went back and looked at the episode and it was there. (NF)

Cash Register

The scene where the girls are registering for the contest and the last scene of the episode were filmed at The Molly Pitcher Hotel.

The very last scene filmed in the Lounge shows a horseshoe shaped bar with a big chrome cash register. The Cumberland County Historical Society has the actual cash register seen in the episode. (BL)

South Ridge Road (I think that's the name), where the Corvette comes out of, coming from Harry's heading to the Westminster Service Station. (NF)

S. Ridge Road.

The scene with the Corvette coming down a country road and turning left was filmed on Route 74 (The York Rd.) south of Carlisle, beyond the Golf Course.

They came down South Ridge Road and turned left onto Route 74, toward Carlisle.

The barn located to the left of S. Ridge Rd. burnt down I believe in the 60s'. Some of the wall is still standing. (BL)

The Corvette turns left...

...onto this road heading to the Westminster Service station. Just a little in front of the tree to the left, there is what is left of a small concrete foundation where the shed building used to be. You can see that in the episode. Obviously, the building across the street that shows up in the episode is gone. (NF)

Carlisle Senior High School

This is the Carlisle High School. I believe this is the shot used in the episode. It says "Carlisle Senior High School" in the episode, and is now the "Emma Thompson McGowan Building".

The High school is very much built up, and has many buildings. Unfortunately, we took this picture on a Saturday, so we couldn't get in to try to get some inside location shots. (NF)

Side Street

This is a side street in Carlise where Max and his wife are walking along, talking about how she had enough of living on the road and getting mixed up in his schemes.

The street seems not to have changed at all as you can see the fire escapes and glass globes just as they were when the episode was filmed. (NF)

Cumberland County Prison

The Cumberland County Prison now houses county records and is not normally open to the public. But as they were giving tours over the Fourth Of July weekend I went and took this photo of a jail cell typical of where Max Coyne and his entourage ended up.
