Lee Harvey Oswald had a name that will be familiar to people of every American generation. How could we forget the name of the assassin who took President Kennedys life? On this note, Lee’s ex apartment complex was destroyed earlier this month. On lookers were at the demolition site through out the day to witness this historic day for both Dallas and the United States.

DALLAS (AP) — A handful of history buffs and curious onlookers watched Monday as a bulldozer tore through the walls of a dilapidated apartment building where Lee Harvey Oswald lived a few months before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The uninhabited 10-unit, two-story apartment complex built in 1925 was one of several remaining places tied to Kennedy's Nov. 22, 1963, assassination, which remains perhaps the most infamous moment in Dallas history. Oswald lived at the building at 600 Elsbeth St. with his wife, Marina, and young daughter from November 1962 to March 1963.
