The Arlington house in which The Doors frontman Jim Morrison briefly lived is for sale.
Located in the Yorktown neighborhood, at 2320 N. Evergreen Street, the house has been listed for more than five weeks and received several offers, but it’s still on the market, according to Weichert Realtors. The asking price for the four-bedroom, 2,364-square-foot Cape Cod house is $920,000. It was built in 1947 and has been recently renovated.
The Vancouver Sun profiled the home earlier this month. It housed the Morrisons when Jim’s father, Admiral George Morrison, was stationed with the Navy at the Pentagon:
The tidy Cape Cod on Evergreen Street is not officially designated as a National Historic Site of Rock and Roll. (Neither is the house on Vernon Place in Melbourne, Fla., where Jim Morrison was born; in fact, during the recent implosion of Sunshine State real estate, its listed value actually fell from $225,000 to $78,000.) This isn’t even the only house the Morrisons lived in during Jim’s elementary school and, later, his high school years in Arlington — half a mile away, on North 28th Street, is a brick ranch whose current owner, a woman named Rhonda Baron, claimed a couple of years ago that she had seen Morrison’s ghost stretched out on her bed.
“It was like a haze. It was like you could look through it,” Baron avowed.
