Fairfield County gets a starring role in the soaps!

If the scenes in Prospect Parks’ recently rebooted Web versions of former daytime dramas One Life to Live and All My Children look familiar, there’s a good reason why. Location scouts for both shows have found plenty of compelling exteriors right here in Stamford — as well as zip codes nearby — to play the role of landmarks in the fictional hamlets of Pine Valley and Llanview, Pennsylvania. Check out where the show’s crews have captured the local scene:

As Seen On All My Children

  • Waveny Mansion, the historic New Canaan mansion set in Waveny Park, was used as the exterior of the regal home inhabited by mogul Palmer Cortlandt and his clan during the show’s forty-one years on broadcast television. It was also the setting for the epic 1970s wedding of Palmer’s daughter Nina to Dr. Cliff Warner; in the scene the bride arrived on the mansion’s grounds in a horse-drawn carriage.
  • Stamford Hospital was long used in the television as the exterior for Pine Valley Hospital, but at press time the Prospect Park had yet to retain rights to use the exterior again.
  • Characters have made somber graveside visits to deceased relatives at Woodland Cemetery, the local burial ground in the South End of Stamford.
  • The iconic intersection of New Canaan’s Main and Elm, with its signature clock, the intersections of Leroy Avenue and Middlesex Road in Darien, and the New Image Nail Salon, West Main Convenience market and Fata Dry Cleaners on Main Street, Stamford.

As Seen On One Life to Live

  • Aria restaurant on Washington Boulevard, the alley next the Southport Brewing Company and Palace Theatre, outside the Majestic Theater on Summer Street, near Scalzi Park at Bridge Street and Washington Boulevard, and the office building at 3001 Summer St.
