Kurt Cobain’s childhood home has become a cultural heritage monument

The place where the singer grew up will be turned into an exhibit.

Kurt Cobain’s childhood home in Aberdeen, Washington, has been officially designated a historic landmark and plans to memorialize its original shape have reportedly been completed “90-95%,” according to Rolling Stone.

The legendary Nirvana frontman lived in the house, which was built in 1923 (according to the Washington State Register), between 1968 and 1984 – just ten years before his death at the age of 27.

The house was officially approved by the Washington Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation for inclusion in the State Heritage Register, which recognizes “historically significant objects and properties found throughout the state.”

Lee Bacon, the current co-owner of the house, told Rolling Stone that he plans to offer private tours of the house starting next spring. Bacon also plans to launch a “Tribute Lounge and Gallery Cafe” in the center of Aberdeen, which would serve as a museum designed to show Cobain’s legacy through memorabilia, photographs, and other items of interest to fans.
