The house where Lee Harvey Oswald lived in the days before he assassinated President John F. Kennedy continues to attract national attention.

This weekend "CBS Sunday Morning" went inside the former boarding house in the Dallas suburb of Oak Cliff, where Oswald rented a small room under the name O.H. Lee.  Oswald paid $8 a week for the room, including refrigerator and living room privileges.

The house has stayed in the same family since 1963 and Oswald's room and tiny single bed has been preserved.

The house went on the market several months ago, priced at $500,000 ad quickly attracted international attention. The price includes "the property in its entirety and related contents," according to a special Web site dedicated to the house for sale.

At this point, the status of the property is unclear. Listings sites show it as "not for sale."

CBS went inside the house with Patricia Hall, granddaughter of Gladys Johnson, who rented the room to Oswald. She said her grandmother went to her grave upset that the police took the sheets from the bed and never returned them.
