If you haven't yet seen the season finale of "Mad Men" and intend to, you might want to skip this item.

TV Guide's Michael Schneider says at his blog Franklin Avenue that he has figured out the location of the run-down former whorehouse that appears in the final scene of the show. It is depicted as the childhood home of main character Don Draper, and is supposed to be somewhere in Pennsylvania. It's actually a house at the corner of Douglas and Carroll in the Angelino Heights historic district, says Schneider: heavily doctored using CGI but still recognizable. The home dates from 1887, he says.

"How popular is this house as a film location? The Google Maps photo of the house happens to catch a shooting trailer and "No Parking" signs all around the house." A neighbor has also tweeted in the past about seeing Jon Hamm on the street.
