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 to drive by the house and make a photo. Reading later of Dylan and learning of his lyrics on Route 61 (which we also traveled), hearing soon after of the $2 million sale of his hand written lyrics "Like a Rolling Stone," and then listening to an NPR piece on a guy who finished two of Dylan's incomplete songs made me feel that the brief excursion was valuable.

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.

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 here" spiel: most fans who've bothered to read up know that and also know that Dylan wasn't too fond of his roots and liked to fudge and fabricate tales, not surprising for a smart ambitious guy from a little traditional town. I'm old and past caring if anyone will laugh at me for taking a photo of a famous musician's old house, and worrying about that stuff is for self-conscious hipsters, so if you have an interest in Dylan history and fancy a look, drive on by. Hibbing and Zimmy's (on E. Howard a block from where you turn to get to the house) are obviously not shy about capitalizing on his image. Zimmy's has some cool old postcards of Dylan, Echo and his old band mates, as well as a decent porketta sandwich.

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.
