The Grateful Dead home is located on Ashbury Street in San Francisco, California. It was here in the Haight-Ashbury district that the band maintained a residence at this Victorian mansion from 1966 to 1968. The band formerly known as the Warlocks first performed as the Grateful Dead in December of 1965. Shortly after, they made this their home base in San Francisco. After swelling crowds moved into the Haight-Ashbury district the band sought escape by relocating to Marin County. Infamously, it was here on October 2, 1967 that 11 people, including band members Bob Weir and Pigpen McKernan, were arrested in a drug bust.
