The Bundy family's first home
Serial Killer House in Tacoma, Washington, United States
In May of 1951, Ted's mother, Louise, and his adoptive father, Johnnie Bundy, moved into this house on South Sheridan Avenue in Tacoma.
This was the Bundy family's first home. When they got the keys to this property, Ted was just four years old.
Previously, Ted and his mother had lived at his great uncle's place on South Alder Street.
Louise and Johnnie started living in this four-bedroom house shortly after they got married. It was around this time that "Ted Nelson" became officially known as "Ted Bundy".
While they were living at this address, Louise gave birth to Ted's half-sister, Linda.
Roughly two years later, Louise and Johnnie left Sheridan Avenue and moved to 658 N Skyline Drive, which ultimately became Ted's main childhood home.
During an interview with author Stephen G. Michaud, Bundy recalled his time on Sheridan Street:
"Our house was on Sheridan Street in Tacoma. It was the second house from the corner, on the west side of the street. We moved there, I would guess, in about 1951. My boyhood on Sheridan Street was not an unpleasant one. I remember those days, of roaming with my friends. The adventure, the exploration. Those were the days of frog hunting and marble playing."
