DALLAS -- The Dallas rooming house where Lee Harvey Oswald lived in the weeks leading up to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has gone on the market for $500,000.

The house has been in Patricia Hall's family since about 1942, but she's decided it's finally time to let it go. The house went on the market Saturday, when the list price was announced.

Oswald, the accused assassin of Kennedy, rented the small room on Oct. 14, 1963, from Hall's grandmother, Gladys Johnson. Oswald briefly returned to the house on Nov. 22, 1963, about 30 minutes after Kennedy was fatally shot in downtown Dallas.

Hall said she's been considering selling for years, but decided the time was right as this year marks the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination.
