Black House (Church of Satan)

Black House (Church of Satan)

"For other uses of the term, see Black House"

The Black House was a Victorian mansion that formerly stood at 6114 California St. in San Francisco, California, in the United States. Though the building is sometimes referred to as a mansion, [http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:wsUzkbY6qu0J:www.villagevoice.com/issues/0231/bosler.php+Anton+LaVey+%22church+of+satan%22+mansion&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=uk] [http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:Q_Gc16FlCQkJ:www.borkowski.co.uk/archives/liquidsoap/2007_07.html+Anton+LaVey+mansion&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=7&gl=uk] photographs of the building taken just before its destruction show that it was a moderately sized single family home, considerably smaller than the two small apartment buildings on either side of the property.

The house was used by Anton LaVey as the headquarters of his Church of Satan from 1966 until his death in 1997. LaVey conducted Satanic seminars and rituals at the house; one of the most notorious such rituals was the Satanic baptism of his daughter Zeena Schreck in 1967, punctuated by LaVey speaking the words "Hail Satan!" over the nude body of a female acting as the 'Satanic Altar'.

Public ceremonies were performed at the house until 1972. [http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:x5L8UBw9Lg0J:www.churchofsatan.com/Pages/CShistory7LR.html+lavey+%22black+house%22+rituals+continued+until+1972&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=4&gl=uk] LaVey lost ownership of the house in 1991 as the result of a court settlement resulting from his separation from Diane Hegarty, but LaVey was allowed to reside at the Black House until his death.

Following LaVey's death, members of the Church of Satan unsuccessfully attempted to raise funds to repurchase the house, and it was demolished on October 17, 2001. As of May 2006, there is a new development being built on the lot where the Black House once stood however many of the workmen in the area do not wish to work on the site as they believe the place is haunted by the ghost of LaVey.
