1. Scott Joplin House State Historic Site on Wikipedia. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places (#76002235) on December 8, 1976 (the same day it was designated a National Historic Landmark). It is not known when it was built but some believe it was in the 1860's. It is not entirely known how long Scott Joplin actually lived at the house, though most sources say during the 1900-1903 period. While living here, Joplin wrote his most famous song, "The Entertainer". At the time of the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, he wrote "The Cascades".
