ASTORIA, Ore. — An Astoria home made famous by “The Goonies” movie was covered with blue tarp recently, in an attempt to deter hundreds of sightseers.
A KATU News viewer sent in photos of the home Monday afternoon, showing blue tarp covering much of the home’s windows and porch.
Owners also left a sign at the home’s driveway that reads, “Access closed to Goonies house.”
Earlier this summer, KATU News spoke with neighbors who say they were never consulted about the home being a defacto tourist destination in their small town.
“We put up a private property, no trespassing a few years ago because people are actually coming up, knocking on our door, and asking us where the Goonies house was,” Astoria resident Mary Miller said.
