Kurt Cobain’s mother, Wendy O’Connor, will soon put his childhood 1.5-story bungalow on the market. The home was last assessed for around $67,000, but is listed for $500,000.
The 1923 structure sits on East 1st Street in Aberdeen near the southwest Washington coast. Cobain had described his childhood in the house as happy, but it is also the house where his parents got divorced. Cobain biographer Charles R. Cross said, “He couldn’t wait to get away, but it’s a place that helped shape who he became.”
