Jean-Louis "Jack" Kérouac was born in the second story apartment of this house on March 12, 1922 "at five o’clock in the afternoon of a red-all-over supper time” (from Doctor Sax, published 1959).

His parents were French Canadians, Léo-Alcide Kéroack and Gabrielle-Ange Lévesque, of St-Hubert-de-Rivière-du-Loup in the province of Quebec, Canada. Jack spoke French exclusively until he was seven years old.
