This is the house where Bobby Zimmerman grew up before going off into the world and changing his name to Bob Dylan. Located at 2425 7th Ave East. There are no tours of the house but it's a great chance to get your photo taken in front of it. It looked better when the mural was on the garage door... More

We managed to find Bob Dylan's House on Bob Dylan Road. The only reason we spotted it was because a lady at the tourist center mentioned that it was still painted the original blue from the time Bob Dylan actually lived there. We are not allowed to go into the house, but it was a nice touch of history to... More

It takes about thirty seconds to drive by and snap the obligatory picture of this private residence. It's interesting to see, but it's a very small attraction. Those who are interested in Dylan and his youth years in Minnesota should go to the City of Hibbing website. At http://www.hibbing.mn.us/index.asp?SEC=2E174F50-8D93-4589-8209-7A49ABA0740D&Type=B_LIST there is a detailed walking tour, with a map, podcast narration,... More

Went by this as we were driving around. It is a private residence but it was fun to drive by and tell the kids who Bob Dylan is and what he did for music.

We were in Hibbing for the Rust Hall open pit ore mine and the Greyhound bus museum. We had to get our rental car serviced and had the technicians there tell us of the house. Since we were also to go to the Motown Museum (Detroit) and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Cleveland) on the trip, we decided... More

Not knowing what to expect on "Bob Dylan Drive" I was pleasantly surprised at the well maintained Dylan house with its tidy yard well pruned hedges and trees. It really was a great experience and the neighbour's yards and houses seemed equally maintained and friendly. The entire town actually was a great place to walk and enjoy. I'll go again.... More

House is actually at 25th and 7th (far end of 2400 block), not 27th and 7th. House is not marked but Hibbing obviously wants you to know where it is as 7th has street signs proclaiming it "Bob Dylan Drive" from the main drag (E. Howard off 169) right down to the house. As for the whole "he wasn't born... More

House is at 27th & 7th. Garage door is painted over. GO TO ZIMMY'S tavern/restaurant at Howard & 7th for a great place, it's a shrine to Dylan.

He wasn't born here. He didn't even live here til he was in grade school. He was not as in love with Hibbing as Hibbing is with him... he left at 18 and never look back. He lived in this house for barely 12 years. Streets and a restaurant are named after him here. It's not his birthplace or anything... More
