Address 635 Ashbury St San Francisco, CA 94117, USA

As the epicenter of hippie culture in the 1960s, the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood in San Francisco has several famous houses. The one that Janis Joplin once occupied is a must-see.

Unchanged since the years when the queen of blues-tinged rock and roll lived there, the Victorian-accented house on Lyon Street, near the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, is typical of the kind of buildings in the neighborhood. Janis Joplin just occupied a room in it with a friend. However, it is this address that appears on her driver’s license. Afterwards, the singer moved around a lot but left her mark here. So much so that her former home has become a real place of pilgrimage.
