3News was first to break the story Monday morning while capturing video of the moment current owner Brian Jones placed the “for sale” sign in front of the legendary house at 3159 West 11th Street in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood.

"Looking for the right buyer," Jones told 3News. "It's an interesting property to not only own, but you also have to take care of as a piece of Americana. It's going to be an interesting journey."
