Netflix's “Mindhunter” filmed throughout Western Pennsylvania from late summer of 2016 through February of this year.

While you're watching the 10-episode first season, look for these local locations, according to Pittsburgh Magazine:

Washington & Jefferson College: The Washington Observer-Reporter says the location will stand in as a Boston college campus.

Carnegie Mellon University: Chosen for several campus shots.

Kittanning: The town was picked for its wintry look and abundance of period-authentic diners and courthouses, according to the Kittanning Paper. It was chosen to represent Altoona in the 1970s. Similar shots were filmed in Swissvale.

Tarentum: Sites used during film in August 2016 included Hometown Restaurant, Massart's restaurant on East Sixth Avenue, First United Presbyterian Church at Lock Street and East 10th Avenue and the Mason's Hall at Fourth and Lock. Production trucks also took over part of the Valley News Dispatch parking lot, according to a Trib article.

Vandergrift: Filming was done at Sprankle's Market on Franklin Avenue.

Butler: The Butler Eagle reports the “Mindhunter” crews used the Butler County courthouse as the “Floyd County Courthouse” for three days of filming.

Coraopolis: The Allegheny County borough was turned into the town of Fredericksburg last July. Vintage cars were gathered and driven around Coraopolis to maintain the authenticity of the shoot.
