Hendrix Childhood Home Facing Demolition

A Seattle court decision might pave the way for Jimi Hendrix’s childhood residence to be paved over. King County Superior Court Judge Palmer Robinson did not lengthen a restraining order that was standing between the home and bulldozers, AP reported. An organization called the James Marshall Hendrix Foundation purchased the property four years ago with the intent of moving the edifice to the nearby town of Renton, where Hendrix is buried, and turning it into a community center. Seattle municipal officials made a move to reclaim the property after the Foundation allegedly missed deadlines to begin work on relocating the structure. The organization now has until Sept. 1 to make other arrangements with the state appellate court.
