Jack Kerouac was living in this home with his third wife, Stella, and his mother when he suffered an internal hemorrhage caused by cirrhosis. He died on October 21, 1969 at the age of 47.

The house has remained essentially the same since the time his mother died in 1972. Today, some efforts are being made to salvage the house and turn it into a museum or writer's retreat.
