(FOXBusiness.com) — Only 12 men have ever walked on the moon – and one of them grew up in Montclair, N.J.

Now the boyhood home of Apollo 11 astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin is up for sale, with the family that currently owns the property asking for about $1 million, according to reports.

But neighbor Ilmar Vanderer, an architect, is trying to win support for a plan to convert the seven-bedroom house into a museum honoring Aldrin, who lived there from birth until he left Montclair to attend the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.

An angel investor who shares Vanderer’s enthusiasm for the idea would be great to find, he said.

“It seems like every single astronaut of that era has a namesake museum except Buzz Aldrin,” Vanderer told NorthJersey.com. “At this point it seems so painfully conspicuous.”
