Originally located in the Central District, Al Hendrix bought a home at this location in 1950 with a $10 down payment.

Jimi Hendrix lived at this address from the ages of 10 to 13, when he first discovered music. Leon Hendrix (Jimi's younger brother by five years) remembers Jimi playing the Peter Gunn theme on a ukulele "because you could play it using only one string."

The home was originally moved to the Hi-Land Mobile Manor, a trailer park opposite to the Jimi Hendrix memorial at Greenwood Memorial Park in Renton, but the house was torn down in 2009 because financing couldn't be secured. The contents of the home (wood, bathtub, doors, etc.) have been put into storage for safe-keeping. Pictures of the pre-disassembled home can be seen here.
