Nirvana frontman and guitarist Kurt Cobain was found dead at the age of 27 in a room above the detached garage of his home at 171 Lake Boulevard East in Seattle’s Denny-Blaine neighborhood. A suicide note was found nearby and an investigation concluded he died three days prior on April 5th, 1994 from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to his head.
Cobain’s wife, Courteney Love, subsequently had the garage demolished and sold the property, located next to Viretta Park, in 1997.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge had the same location as the present day westbound bridge spanning the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and Gig Harbour, Washington.
Aerodynamic factors caused a substantial collapse of the original Tacoma Narrows Bridge in November 1940, just four months after opening. The new bridge, opened in October 1950, was a complete replacement, only utilizing the original bridge’s concrete piers and cable anchorages.
In 1997, a third bridge was built alongside the existing bridge to carry SR 16 eastbound traffic to Tacoma.
