The John William Blind Boone Home

More than one hundred years ago, the two-story Victorian house at 10 N. 4th Street was home to one of the world's most famous musicians, John W. "Blind" Boone. In his lifetime, he overcame blindness, poverty and discrimination to become an amazing composer and concert pianist. Boone helped to merge African-American folk music with the European classical tradition, a fusion that opened the way for ragtime, jazz, boogie-woogie and much more.
