Former home of Redd Foxx
After wrapping up an 11-year run on Sanford and Son, Redd Foxx continued his career in stand-up comedy as a big draw in Las Vegas. He moved to Sin City, where he built a reputation for enjoying the gambling culture just a little too much; by the time he died in 1991, most of his earnings were claimed by the IRS, and his funeral was paid for by Eddie Murphy. Foxx promised to stick around after his death, and his home near Eastern and Hacienda is said to be haunted by numerous owners who have taken custody of the property over the years. It's currently an office for Shannon Day Realty. Look carefully at the sign out front -- there a picture of a red fox in the corner as a tribute to the late comedian. The gesture may have gotten on his good side, as reports of hauntings have dropped in recent years.
