Boulder, Colo. (KUSA) -- Following the sudden death of actor and comedian Robin Williams, fans in Boulder, Colorado, flocked to the house used in the 'Mork & Mindy' show.

The show was Williams' big break.

On Monday, Williams was found unconscious and not breathing inside his home in Tiburon, California, and was pronounced dead shortly after.

Several people, including Democratic Congressman Jared Polis, stopped by the "Mork and Mindy house" on PIne Street in Boulder to pay tribute to the 63-year-old. Although filmed in California, Boulder was the setting for the late 70s sitcom that aired on ABC.

Polis watched the show as a child growing up in Boulder. He says Williams helped put the college town on the map. Boulder native Carrie Walker also went to the house. She says it's a landmark she often takes visitors to see.

Flowers and a sign that read "U will be missed Mork" were placed beneath a picture of the actor posted on a fence surrounding the 130-year-old Boulder home.
