Bonnie McManus, from the Mable Dodge Luhan House, says the late actor made a secret, last visit to the town just a few months ago, at the height of his battle with cancer.

He was accompanied by his children.

"He was dressed really nice and looked like an English gentleman with his long coat and his hat, but he was so frail and thin," McManus said on Tuesday.

"You knew it was his last goodbye to the house."

Hopper died on May 29 at the age of 74.

The actor is survived by four children, daughters Marin, Ruthanna, and Galen Grier and son Henry Lee.
