History and Features
The second-floor apartment, now a National Historic Landmark, where ragtime legend Scott Joplin lived from 1900-1903 has been restored and furnished with period pieces to provide visitors a glimpse into the life of this African-American composer. Joplin's music, including the "Maple Leaf Rag" and "The Entertainer,” play in the music room's player piano. The site features exhibits on Joplin's life and St. Louis during the ragtime era. The Rosebud Cafe, a recreated Ragtime performance venue adjacent to the historic home, hosts concerts periodically.
