Named after it's role in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982) this set has been most recently seen in CBS drama Ghost Whisperer (2005), starring Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Unlike many buildings on the lot, this is a fully practical set which can be fully used as a location, both inside and out.
It's based on a real house in Austin, Texas where establishing shots for Best Little Whorehouse were filmed.
The set was originally built inside Stage 12 (for better control over the environment for filming) and was moved to it's current location after filming, so it could be used for other productions.
It's position was previously occupied by the Psycho house (which was moved to it's current location when filming began for Psycho II in 1983)
A small outhouse behind the Chicken Ranch was moved, around March 2007, and is now at the entrance to the Earthquake attraction behind Denver Street.
