Not much more than what blows in the wind...

If you are a Dylan fan, this is worthy of a brief stop to take a picture, but the truth is that it is just a house, and in fact, the mural once painted on the garage no longer... read more

It's actually a cool house, however I would have loved to be able to see the album painted on the garage. Not sure why they decided to paint over that, oh well, it's not my house. It's not like you can get a tour or anything of this house but for some reason, just sitting in front of it on... More

There's not really anything to see, not even a plaque and no signs or directions to get there. The street has been renamed in his honor however. The front hedges are grown up offering privacy to the owners. It was still a fun experience to walk where Dylan walked.

The house is now on a street named after Dylan- but there is not much to see. If you are in the area, have a look. But I would not make a detour for it myself. My husband would though...

Kind of a non-descript house with overgrown shrubs. I think it's someone's home, so you can only see it from the outside. If you like Bob Dylan, it's worth a look.

Bob Dylan lived here during his high school years. We were having breakfast and an adjacent table had 3 men who knew him as a teen - one was his Principal. It is still owned by the Zimmerman family, but you can drive by and take a picture. It is easy to find, everyone knows where - on the corner... More

For most people, Hibbing is a nice little Midwestern Town, with a few must-visits and a good burger at the Sportsmens Cafe. If, however, the soundtrack of your life includes a half-dozen Bob Dylan albums, you already know Hibbing by way of a hundred metaphors. You’re not surprised to learn that businessmen literally forced the town to relocate, while they... More

There is not a LOT to see but it is fun to see where Dylan lived. It is worth stopping by... There is no tour allowed inside the house however you can see where he grew up and see that he started out in just an ordinary normal house like the rest of us live in. :-)

The house where Bob Dylan lived through his high school years is an interesting site to anyone that appreciates his music and songwriting. There is nothing special about the house and there is no real identification of the house except that it is on Bob Dylan Ave. If you are In the area. it is a very normal and humble... More

This was Dylan's home from 1947 to 1959 (his high school graduation). Before that he lived in Duluth. This is where his musical talents were started. The house has a street sign in front stating "Bob Dylan Drive". It's just a regular house, not a museum. Dylan may or may not be liked but the songs he wrote live on.... More
