Want to Buy Kurt Cobain’s Childhood Home? It’s for Sale… [UPDATE]

If you’re looking for a modest home in a down-at-the-heels logging town at the end of the road, I’ve got a deal for you. It’s a 1.522 square-foot four-bedroom house (one bath, alas) in Aberdeen, Washington.


It’s a fixer-upper for sure–the kid who used to live there used to draw on the walls and later, as a teenager, punch a hole in the wall that was never repaired–but it has potential.
