The Van Ness House was built in Bodega Bay, California in 1862 by Miles Van Ness who made his money in the gold rush. Miles' son Whitman Van Ness lost the family fortune, including the house, in the early 1900s. At various times the house was later used as a brothel, a boarding house, a school, and a speakeasy (which is why it has a secret room).
