Brady Residence Turns 20!

Brady Residence, my website about the best show in the history of television, The Brady Bunch, is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Beginning as a little fan site on the old Geocities in 1998, I am happy to say that Brady Residence is still going strong.

The reason is that because after all these years, The Brady Bunch continues to be part of pop culture, as just last week, it was in the news for its iconic house going on the market.

I would like to thank my former boss, Andy McMahon, who encouraged me to start the site, my former co-worker, Suzanne Maggio, who came up with the name, Wendy Winans of Brady World, who installed the Brady Residence drop on my home page, my mother, who dubbed me The Brady Lady, and who encouraged me to continue the site, my husband Brad, who has put up with my Brady Bunch obsession over the years,  Joanne Calabria, who gave me the thrill of a lifetime by hiring me to appear on two Brady Bunch marathons on the old Philly 57, A&E for including me on Brady Bunch: Biography, my hard-core Brady Bunch friends – especially Ilene Solar, Jeremy Treatman, and Tim Fisher, the organizers of The Brady Bunch Convention in 2015, the many networks that have aired the show over the years, and of course, The Brady Bunch – creator Sherwood Schwartz, Robert Reed, Florence Henderson, Ann B. Davis, Barry Williams, Maureen McCormick, Christopher Knight, Eve Plumb, Mike Lookinland, and Susan Olsen!

September of 2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of The Brady Bunch!
