We all learned about Neil Armstrong in school as an American astronaut and as the first person to ever walk on the moon in 1969. With that one fact he became famous all over the world, and for his famous saying "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind". Neil Armstrong passed away in 2012 at the age of 82 but is still talked about in classrooms across the world. But many people didn't know that Neil lived in El Lago, Texas when he took that Apollo mission and landed on the moon.

When you look at the photos below you might not be blown away with the size of the home or the fact that it looks like it could be any random house in Texas. But the house was built in 1964 so it was basically brand new when Neil first moved in. It makes sense that he would purchase this home as it's just minutes from the Space Center Houston and NASA Johnson Space Center.
