Scott Joplin House State Historic Site
2658 Delmar Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63103 - United States
An authentic player piano fills the air with Scott Joplin melodies as you walk through the modest flat on Delmar Boulevard that Joplin lived in during his time in St. Louis. Lit by gaslight, the home is furnished as it would have been in 1902 when Joplin was composing songs that would make him a national phenomenon. Scott Joplin House State Historic Site, which stands as a testimony to his talent and hard work, also includes museum exhibits that interpret Joplin’s life.
Information on Scott Joplin's life will be on display. Tours will be given at the top of every hour, with the last tour beginning at 3 p.m.
