Billie Holiday's home is on South Durham Street in Baltimore, Maryland. It was here the famed vocalist lived with her mother in a row home in the Upper Fells Point area in 1926. In this home Billie's mother found her 11 year old daughter being raped by a boarder, Wilbur Rich, on Christmas Eve 1926. While the boarder was arrested and sent to jail, Billie was sent to The Good Shepherd Home For Colored Girls under protective custody. Shortly after her release in 1927 Billie and her mother moved one house up to 217 Durham Street.
