  1. Thank you! Loved it.

  2. Chas,
    Went exploring yesterday armed with your information. Found the Riggs house. The actual address is 701 East, 700 North. Looks much like it did in the movie, except a huge modern home has been built behind the red barn. Do you know if the interior scenes were shot in this house or elsewhere? Also visited the Maple Lane Mall in LaPorte. I live in Plymouth IN and are within an easy drive of Three Oaks, New Carlisle, and LaPorte. Fun stuff. Thanks.

  3. Enjoyed your site. Always loved the scenery in this movie.

  4. It definitely looks and has the feel of Indiana in the winter.

  5. Prancer is one of the classics in our house, and this year we are going to make the rounds to as many of the filming sites as we can. No matter how much time goes by, this little story warms the heart over and over because its so real!

  6. The Wetherby residence is 17768 Pardee Rd. Galien, Michigan. It is a private residence.

    1. Hi Don, thank you for the location. If you would like me to credit you for the find let me know and if so what do you want me to put? Thanks again.

  7. There is a home in three oaks michigan you can rent for vacations . It is owned by the director of Prancer. We can see the church from the movie from our front porch :)
