Mushroom House

The house is now behind high cyclone fence and boarded up. It has looked better.

Mushroom House

This house has been here forever. It looks just like a mushroom and is painted some ridiculous retro-tie dye colors. The house is located on Highway 74 just east of the 215 Freeway. The nearest cross street is Juniper Flats Road and Hwy 74. If you're heading towards Hemet, the house will be on the left-hand side.

Back when I was in high school (1995 or so) the house was painted a normal brown color with mushroom spots on it to look like a real mushroom.
