The Harry Potter Canon

Found in Godric’s Hollow and once home to James, Lily, and Harry Potter, this cottage was destroyed in 1981 when Voldemort, after killing James and Lily, attempted to kill Harry as well and his Killing Curse rebounded, destroying his body and blasting off the corner of the building. Today the building still stands in the same condition, as a monument to Harry’s triumph over Voldemort (DH17).
