From 1900 to 1903, this was the residence of Scott Joplin (1868-1917), one of America's significant composers. His work with the musical genre later known as Ragtime provided important foundations for modern American music, combining elements of Midwestern folk and Afro-American melodic rhythmic traditions within the structural contexts of Western European musical forms. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, December 8, 1976
