- Visit the house where ragtime music legend Scott Joplin is known to have spent one of his most productive periods. A nine-year resident of St. Louis, Joplin spent two years in this house with wife Belle Haden. He published eight songs while living here in 1902, "The Entertainer" being the most famous today. A player piano with scrolls of his music serves as a charming part of the restoration effort implemented to make this house appear as it would have during his time here. The home is listed as a National Historic Landmark. Guided tours are available daily.
