Charles Hardin Holley (later Buddy Holly) was born at home at this address on Sept. 8, 1936. The house was later moved (to locations unknown) and the address was an empty lot for years.

Buddy's birth announcement in the Lubbock Evening Journal paper was filled with errors:

"A daughter weighing 8 and 1/2 pounds was born at 6:10 o’clock Monday afternoon at Clark-Key Clinic to Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence O. Holley, of 1913 6th Street. Holley is associated with a tailoring establishment here."

The errors:

• Buddy was a son, not a daughter.

• Buddy was born at home, not at a clinic.

• That home was located at 1911 Sixth St.

• Griggs also learned from Buddy’s mother: “Buddy was born at 3:30 p.m., and he weighed 61/2 pounds.”
