In his hometown of Gary, Indiana, fans have left flowers and messages of love at the two-bedroom, white-framed house at 2300 Jackson St. where Michael Jackson, who died of prescription drug-induced heart failure at the age of 50, lived with his parents and eight siblings.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the house has become a draw for Jackson‘s fans, who flock to it to leave flowers and teddy bears around the anniversary of his death. Since his death in 2009, the yard has had to be fenced in after thousands of fans paying tribute trampled the grass. To avoid further damage, the yard was fenced off and a granite monument was erected in the front yard.
