Kurt Cobain’s mother, Wendy O’Connor, has put the late Nirvana frontman’s childhood home up for auction. According to Loudwire.com, the 1.5-story home located two hours southwest of Seattle was last assessed to be worth less than $67,000 but currently has a $500,000 asking price.

The Associated Press is reporting that O’Connor is trying to lure buyers by using photos of a young Cobain growing up in the home. One image shows Kurt posing with a birthday cake and another of a teenage Cobain smiling with his guitar in hand. His sister Kim explained, “We’ve decided to sell the home to create a legacy for Kurt, and yes, there are some mixed feelings since we have all loved the home and it carries so many great memories. But our family has moved on from Washington, and feel it’s time to let go of the home.”

The family has expressed that they are willing to sell the property to someone hoping to turn it into a museum honoring Cobain’s legacy.
