ABERDEEN, Wash. (AP) - A Portland woman has started an online campaign to save the childhood home of Kurt Cobain in Aberdeen as a museum to the Nirvana grunge rock icon.

KXRO reports (https://bit.ly/OAzNXr ) Jaime Dunkle hopes to raise $700,000 through gofundme.com. She says the house will not be fixed or updated but will remain as it is because “it’s real.”

Cobain’s mother put the bungalow on the market last September for $500,000. It was last assessed at less than $67,000.

The house is a short walk from a riverfront park dedicated to Cobain’s memory, and the family said it would welcome a partnership to make the home into a museum.
