Jimi Hendrix's home is on Traver Hollow Road in Boiceville, New York. It was here the famed guitarist lived during the summer of 1969. Hendrix took residence here intially to find some solitude while he worked on a new album. It had been several months since his last release and he was trying to get material together for a new album. Along the way he signed on to do the Woodstock Music Festival and this stone manor, Ashokan House, became his rehearsal studio for the event. Stories came out about Hendrix and his wild parties, drugs, orgies, loud music. He appeared at Woodstock on August 18, 1969 and shortly thereafter left the area.
