Universal is really letting the house used in the film (and others) go to pot. As horror fans, we cannot allow this to happen. There is a petition circulating online to have it restored to its former glory, so please take a minute to sign it and make an impact.

The house has been totally destroyed then totally rebuilt many times, at least once each time they made another Psycho movie and some other movies or TV shows too, I believe?
People have built replicas of it in various locations too.
Many really old movie sets from even the Silent Movie era were all burnt for the filming of the burning of Atlanta for "Gone With The Wind".
There were some massive silent era sets in the Northern California desert made to resemble Biblical fortress and city and at least until a few years ago, they were still there where they had been left and were possibly going for restoration funding.
They were all made of wood and lathe then plastered. Being in the desert helped them survive.
