Matt Drudge’s Childhood House

Matt Drudge is the creator, owner and editor of the Drudge Report, a news aggregation website.  He is probably Bungalow Cottage in Historic District Takoma Parkmost famous for being the first to break the Monica Lewinsky scandal story in 1998.

His headlines and links to stories are often salacious like this one “Man beats elderly woman to death with air conditioning unit…” or this one “Woman faces charges in mummified boyfriend case ..”

I have to admit, when I first heard of the Drudge Report, I thought it was a small rag magazine or newspaper that “drudged” up dirt on stories and people.

Until I looked it up, I didn’t know that is was named for a guy that grew up in Takoma Park and went to Blair High School in Silver Spring.

Matt Drudge grew up in this adorable 2 bedroom, 1 bath “Santa Fe” style cottage bungalow, built 1941 in the Historic District of Takoma Park.  The last sale of the house was in 2011 for $364,000.
