Goldie Hawn the famous actress and comedian grew up in this quaint and charming circa 1927 Brick Duplex in Takoma Park, Md 20912. The Hawn Family lived in the Left Side of this duplex. Goldie's small wedding to John Hudson was in the backyard of this home. Goldies father Edward Hawn, a musician, died in 1982 and Goldie's mother Laura lived in this home up until 1984, when she sold the house and moved to California, where she died in 1994. Goldie graduated from the old Blair High School in Silver Spring, Md in 1963 and attended American University in Washington DC. Although she grew up in Takoma Park, her "stomping ground" was Downtown Silver Spring in it's heyday. She speaks of her fond memories in the Documentary Film "Silver Spring, Story of an American Suburb"
