Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "TAPS":
These scenes were actually shot at Valley Forge Military Academy, located in Wayne, Pennsylvania. Google Map
The "Main Gate" where the confrontation between the "townies" and Gen. Basche (Geo. C. Scott) takes place never exsisted. It was constructed for the movie only, and was returned to its original form of a small "single person gate" for the real superintendant to exit the Main Area, and cross the street to his house.
Many of the "interior scenes were filmed on sets constructed in the academy's former riding hall named " Clothier Hall, which no longer exists.
The Superintendant's house is really named "Crossed Sabres", -the name for the annual school yearbook. [Thanks to Mark]
Part of this movie was filmed @ Kemper Military Academy, Boonville Missouri. I attended Kemper 1969 - 1971. [Thanks to Maurice A]

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!
Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
