The Scott Joplin House State Historic Site is located on Delmar Boulevard in St. Louis, Missouri. The famed composer was on his way to becoming the King of Ragtime when, in 1900, he moved into the second story flat of this brick row home which stands at what was then 2658 A Morgan Street. Having scored a recent success with Maple Leaf Rag, Joplin and his new wife, Belle, moved from Sedalia, Missouri, to the more populace St. Louis. They lived here until 1903. Joplin composed many songs during his stay here, including The Entertainer. The house was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976.
