i saw a photo of bob's childhood home in one of the early bio's i think it may have been behind the shades but wouldn't bet on it. anyway it showed a yellowish house with stairs and a sone wall. also the roof was pitched. this photo i have seen many times in many sites. just for your info.

Thanks M. When I went to Hibbing about 3 yrs ago I asked at a restaurant on Main St and they sent me to this house. So I have been assuming all this time that I got the right one. (You saw the pic taken of the garage around the side of the house with the Blood on the Tracks mural?) Anyway, I suppose it's possible that Bob's parents moved house and actually lived in several locations in Hibbing. More research would be interesting. I'll take down my pictures if this turns out not to be the house.

This is definitely the right place, but it's not a mansion by any means.

I grew up in Hibbing and I think that this is the right house. I delivered the newspaper to Bob Dylan's aunt & uncle when I was a kid. Anyway, if the original pic is different, it's because the new owners likely painted it and fixed it up. The current paint job in this pic is very recent compared to the paint jobs on Hibbing houses when I lived there 17+ years ago.

Thank you asusean: I guess that more or less clinches the debate. I suppose it's still possible that Bob's parents moved around to several places in Hibbing.
