(Fox News) – There are many iconic and infamous homes in Los Angeles, but
rarely do they appear on the market. That might be the reason one home in Bel
Air is attracting so much attention from potential buyers, developers, and fans alike.

Forbes reports this particular Bel Air mansion was reportedly once owned by socialite and actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, and was rumored to have been occupied
by playboy and aviator Howard Hughes, and King of Rock-and-Roll Elvis
Presley — and it’s on the market for $23.4 million.

Woodrow Wilson Guthrie (July 14, 1912 – October 3, 1967)

singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie was one of the most significant figures
in American folk music; his songs, including social justice songs, such
as "
This Land Is Your Land", have inspired several generations both
politically and musically. He wrote hundreds of political,
folk, and
children’s songs, along with
ballads and improvised works.

Guthrie died of complications of Huntington’s disease on October 3,
1967. By the time of his death, his work had been discovered by a
new audience, introduced to them through Dylan,
Pete Seeger,
Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, his ex-wife Marjorie and other new members
of the folk revival, and his son
Arlo (below).
