Late American rock legend Kurt Cobain’s childhood home has officially been declared a Washington state landmark.
The Nirvana legend’s Washington state residence was approved by the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation to be turned into an exhibit.
Cobain’s childhood house that spans over 1,500-square-foot will give fans a chance to see the home as it was left when the singer lived there. Cobain lived in the one-and-a-half-story house in Aberdeen from 1968 to 1984.
The property's current owner, Lee Bacon spoke to the Rolling Stone about his plans of recreating the home and bringing it back to its prime vintage state. “Our goal is to make the house a tribute project to Kurt’s early life and career, with museum detail. The next chapter is how to make that happen,” said Bacon.
Bacon and wife Danielle bought the house from the singer’s family in 2019 for $225,000. They are now also letting his sister, Kim Cobain, have an input in the exhibit. “I enjoy being involved and providing my input. I am very happy and supportive that Lee and Dani took this on three years ago,” she shared with the outlet.
Cobain, who was married to Courtney Love, committed suicide on April 5, 1994. A high concentration of heroin and traces of diazepam were also found in his body at the time.
